General Hotels buys Columbus Courtyard Marriott

October 10, 2014

Indianapolis-based General Hotels Corp. last month bought the 150-room Courtyard by Marriott Columbus Airport Hotel from California-based MLQ MB Hotels 2011 LLC.

Terms of the deal were not disclosed.

General Hotels is a privately owned chain which after the recent acquisition owns 12 hotels in central Indiana, including the Crowne Plaza hotels at Union Station and the Indianapolis International Airport.

The Columbus acquisition is the second recent hotel investment for General Hotels. Earlier this summer, the company broke ground on a 67-room Best Western Hotel & Suites in French Lick.

"The Midwest is an area where we are working to increase our presence,” General Hotels CEO Jim Dora Jr. said in a statement. “Given its location and position in the Columbus marketplace, the Courtyard Airport Columbus promises to be a nice addition to our hotel portfolio.”

The Courtyard By Mariott Columbus Airport Hotel includes an indoor pool, fitness center, business work space and a restaurant offering breakfast and dinner.
