Doubletree Little Rock

Apparently the hotel's raking in the cash and an ownership from NY is looking to buy the management rights for $66 mil and this would likely mean extensive renovation to the hotel.

More good news for downtown LR if this happens.

I understand the $66 million was not only for the DoubleTree but other properties in LR.

True, but someone from the A&P Commission said that renovations could be as much as $12 million.

Another thought. I didn't know that anyone that takes over hotel has to maintain a flag with either DoubleTree, Crown Plaza, Hyatt, Sheraton or Radisson. The city requires this. They think that the new owners would reapply to continue to be a DoubleTree property.

One would assume the city would write an exemption for a couple of other brands like Westin, Wyndham, Hilton, etc. It's kind of strange they picked the names they did.

It makes since that the city would like to keep a certain quality level for this hotel. The LR Doubletree is most likely a franchise. This means that no matter who the new owner is - they have to live out the franchise agreement currently in place unless they are excused from it by Hilton (who owns the Doubletree brand).
