Crescent Real Estate acquired the 157-key Hotel Colonnade Coral Gables, Autograph Collection, the company’s seventh deal through its latest investment vehicle.
Crescent, a real estate operating company and investment advisor based in Fort Worth, Texas, acquired the hotel for $63 million from hotel real estate investment trust Pebblebrook Hotel Trust. HEI Hotels & Resorts will management the property, according to the news release.
The Hotel Colonnade will be Crescent’s third Autograph Collection Hotels property, fitting well within the company’s growing full-service hotel portfolio, Crescent Co-CEO Jason Anderson said in the release.

Built in 1926, the Hotel Colonnade was originally part of a planned community designed by George Merrick, the real estate developer known for being the planner and builder of Coral Gables, Florida. In 1988, a portion of the building was converted into a hotel.
