Atlanta-based Hotel Equities added the management for the 4-Star Wyvern Hotel (www.thewyvernhotel.com
) in Punta Gorda, Florida to its portfolio. This 63-room boutique hotel, located on South Florida's Gulf Coast, delivers luxury without pretense as it provides upscale service and amenities.
The Wyvern marks the first addition for Hotel Equities after the firm completed a joint venture with Alliance Hospitality that increased their portfolio to more than 55 hotels. With an artfully landscaped rooftop pool and lounge area, the hotel offers clear views of Charlotte Harbor in a setting of natural beauty that has become a hallmark of Punta Gorda and the Gulf Islands.
"We are delighted to expand our portfolio in Florida with this beautiful and tastefully-appointed hotel," said Brad Rahinsky, Chief Operating Officer of HE. "We look forward to a rewarding and profitable working partnership with the hotel's ownership group as we add value to this asset."
Anticipating the needs of business, leisure and group tour travelers, the hotel features bell service, a guest fitness center with LifeFitness® equipment and concierge service. The hotel's friendly team stands ready to meet all service needs. Meeting and event space is ideal for everything from romantic wedding receptions to corporate gatherings of all types.
"Hotel Equities brought a results-driven tradition of strong operations to our new partnership," said John Wise, owner of the Wyvern. "Their experience contributed to a very nimble transition. After considering many choices, I knew Hotel Equities was a great fit."
