Interstate Hotels & Resorts, Americaå‘s largest independent hotel management company, has announced the signing of long-term agreements with Epoch Properties and Florida Capital to manage three hotels in Orlando, Fla. The three hotels å—an AmeriSuites Hotel, a Country Inn and Suites and a La Quinta Hotel å—- are part of Calypso Cay Resort.
Two of the hotels are clustered together on Route 417 near the Orlando International Airport and the major Disney theme parks. The newly built, 148-room La Quinta Hotel Orlando, which opened May 1, is situated on the opposite side of Route 417 and is home to a spa with heated outdoor pool plus extensive business and fitness centres.
“Complex resorts, like the Calypso Cay, that include different hotel brands, food and beverage operations and a variety of real estate components, require a special expertise,” said John Emery, Interstate president and chief operating officer. “We have a proven track record of operating resort complexes and have built a successful track record managing a portfolio of nearly 30 resorts, which we believe makes Interstate uniquely qualified to help Calypso Cay maximise revenues while delivering a high level of guest service.”
“Interstate’s experience with complex resorts was a big plus in our search for an appropriate manager,” said Tom Selby, president of Florida Capital. “Their size and related economies of scale, in addition to their strong presence in Orlando, will translate into real cost savings and other tangible benefits.”
Interstate Hotels & Resorts operates more than 380 hospitality properties with nearly 82,000 rooms in 44 states, the District of Columbia, Canada and Russia, including 55 properties managed by Flagstone Hospitality Management, a subsidiary of Interstate Hotels & Resorts.
