Winston buys St. Charles Marriott

Winston Hotels has acquired the 121-room Courtyard by Marriott in St. Charles, Ill. for $9.2 million from a private investment group.“Built in 2000, this well-located property is surrounded by a diversified mix of demand generators that attract both corporate and leisure travelers,” said Joe Green, president and chief financial officer. “The hotel adds to our growing list of properties located in or near major urban markets, and we were able to acquire it at an attractive valuation.”

Located about 35 miles west of downtown Chicago, the hotel features about 1,000 square feet of meeting space, an indoor pool, a fitness center, and complimentary high-speed wireless internet access.
