Staying Ahead of the Times
BRE Hotels & Resorts traces its roots to Blackstone Real Estate Group’s 2004 acquisition of Boca Resorts Inc. BRE’s predecessor WHM was formed to manage Boca’s five distinctive destination properties in prime Florida locations, including the famed Boca Raton Resort & Club. Wyndham International was acquired the following year, a transaction that led to the creation of LXR Luxury Resorts to comprise not only Wyndham’s luxury portfolio – 14 full-service hotels, resorts and spas throughout the United States, Puerto Rico and the Caribbean – but also the Boca Collection and Prime Hospitality’s proprietary full-service brand.
BRE’s current platform was established in 2013 with the purchase of a select service portfolio from Apple REIT. Since then BRE Hotels & Resorts has expanded its asset base to include all chain scales with a focus on luxury and upper upscale resorts. A shrewd approach to hotel acquisitions continues to expand the platform’s reach into diverse markets with strong demand generators. This dynamic portfolio emphasizes profitability, with a proven strategy to significantly re-invest in acquired assets to improve guest experience and thus enhance share. The result is a powerful investment vehicle focused on long-term hold for a steady income stream.
Be the Difference
BRE Hotels & Resorts takes seriously our commitment to corporate responsibility, with efforts focused on environmental stewardship and community outreach.
