PALM BEACH, Fla.—Officials with Island Hospitality, a hotel management company, announced that it has been engaged by Chatham Lodging Trust to operate the 111-room Hampton Inn and Suites in Exeter, N.H. This engagement extends Island’s management portfolio to 11 states on the East Coast and the District of Columbia and marks its 16th Hilton-branded hotel. The hotel was acquired earlier this summer by Chatham Lodging Trust, a hotel real estate investment trust (REIT) focused on investing in upscale extended-stay hotels and premium branded select-service hotels.
“Island has been steadily expanding its geographic footprint this year, adding new markets like Pittsburgh and now a new east coast state,” said Tim Walker, president of Island Hospitality. “This hotel is a well-considered, strategic addition to our portfolio as it has a similar operating environment to the very successful Hampton Inn in Portland Maine which joined our portfolio earlier this year. It also enhances our position as one of the most prominent operators of the leading select-service hotel brands.”
The LEED-certified Hampton Inn and Suites opened in August 2010. It offers numerous complimentary amenities, including WiFi throughout the hotel and a daily hot breakfast. Additionally, each room is equipped with the brand’s clean and fresh Hampton bed, as well as 37-inch flat screen televisions.
