Paramount Lodging Advisors (PLA) completed the sale of the 118-key Drury Inn & Suites Northeast Memphis on behalf of DSW Inns LLC, announced the hospitality industry-centric brokerage and advisory firm.  According to a company news release, the property registered high interest among buyers, with 160 entities expressing interest to pick up the property, “many of whom were attracted to the deal by Drury’s exceptional overall reputation as a company and developer.”  Senior Associates Adam Montufar and Brent Clemens represented the seller. “The rebranding requirement did create some challenges,” but the needs were addressed, said Montufar. Montufar credited previous experience as the key to smoothing out all the necessary details.

The property was picked up by a regional investor, who has since converted the property to a Quality Inn & Suites. The Shelby County Register of Deeds data revealed the buyer as Kali Hospitality Ltd. The Humboldt, Tenn.-based company paid $4.05 million for the 1556 Sycamore View Rd. property, filing a $3,707,000 mortgage with Fidelity Bank in conjunction with the acquisition.
