January 27, 2020

ORLANDO, January 27, 2020 – JLL Hotels & Hospitality announced today that it has closed the sale of the 390-room Holiday Inn & Suites Across from Universal Orlando on behalf of the seller, AVR Realty Company.

Senior Managing Director Gregory Rumpel and Vice President Zayli Rodriguez led the JLL team on the transaction. The hotel was sold to InSite Group unencumbered of an existing management agreement.

Situated at 5905 South Kirkman Road between Interstate 4 and Universal Orlando Resort attractions, the Holiday Inn & Suites is directly across from Universal Orlando Resort, the second-largest resort market in Greater Orlando and one of the most visited destinations in the world. The hotel is proximate to the Orange County Convention Center, 20 minutes from the Orlando International Airport and a 12-minute drive to Walt Disney World Resort. Holiday Inn & Suites Across from Universal Orlando features an outdoor heated pool with a large patio area and separate children’s pool, a 24-hour fitness center and business center, an onsite TGI Friday’s restaurant and 13,000 square feet of meeting and event space.

“Despite Orlando’s continuous influx of new supply, the Holiday Inn & Suites Across from Universal Orlando has demonstrated impressive historical operating performance with resilient cash flows,” Rodriguez said. “Upon completion of the hotel’s refurbishment plan, the property will be well-positioned to capitalize on the immense growth and the substantial investments being made in the market.”

Orlando is one of the most visited destinations in the world with a record of more than 75 million visitors annually. In the United States, Orlando is the second-largest lodging market and the #1 most visited destination in the country.
