PHILADELPHIA, PA –- Arden Group, through their discretionary fund affiliate Arden Real Estate Partners II, LP, announced they have acquired the Sheraton Atlanta Hotel.
The recently renovated 763 room upscale hotel includes over 100,000 square feet of event and meeting space. Sheraton full service amenities feature an indoor/outdoor climate-controlled swimming pool and whirlpool, spacious indoor Garden Courtyard with a retractable glass roof, Sheraton fitness center, business center, Collage restaurant and Fandangles restaurant and bar.
Arden will be investing an additional $7 million on top of the recent $15 million spent on renovations completed in 2016. Arden will further enhance the guest room experience, lobby, meeting rooms and the restaurant. The sale was facilitated by Jones Lange LaSalle.
The property is located in downtown Atlanta at 165 Courtland St NE adjacent to Georgia State University. The hotel benefits from demand generated by the university, continued corporate relocations, its proximity to key Atlanta tourist attractions and the Georgia World Congress Center.
Commenting on the investment, Craig A. Spencer, CEO of Arden Group said, “We are pleased to have acquired this quality full-service convention hotel in this robust downtown market. Atlanta’s dynamic job growth has created an exciting investment environment.”

“This acquisition is consistent with our strategy of investing in opportunities for value creation, making this our fourth hotel purchase in the past two years. The planned renovation and Arden’s strategic asset management oversight will allow us to achieve our operational goals as well as enhance appreciation of the asset over time.”
