LOS ANGELES, September 27, 2022 – JLL’s Hotels & Hospitality Group announced today that it has closed the $49 million sale of the Hyatt Place Los Angeles / LAX / El Segundo, a 143-key, select-service hotel in El Segundo, California.

JLL represented the seller, Washington Holdings, and procured the buyer, El Segundo-based Welcome Group, Inc. The hotel was sold unencumbered by management.

Located at 750 N Nash St., the Hyatt Place El Segundo is ideally positioned in the coastal city of El Segundo, which features numerous corporate and leisure demand drivers. The city is home to prominent defense and aerospace firms as well as three sports teams: the NBA’s Los Angeles Lakers, the NHL’s Los Angeles Kings and the NFL’s Los Angeles Chargers. The Chargers are in the process of building a new state-of-the-art practice facility that will further bolster demand in the area. In addition, the Hyatt Place El Segundo is close to Los Angeles International Airport and accessible via the 405 and 105 Freeways.

The Hyatt Place El Segundo, which was recently renovated in 2020, offers traditional guest rooms and king suites that average 369 square feet each. Guests have access to on-site amenities, including The Placery bar and restaurant, The Market grab-and-go outlet, a fitness center, outdoor pool and electrical vehicle charging station. In addition, the pet-friendly hotel features a business center and 1,054 square feet of meeting or event space.

The JLL Hotels & Hospitality team representing the seller was led by Senior Managing Director John Strauss, Managing Director James Stockdale and Executive Vice President Melvin Chu.

“The Los Angeles area benefits from strong corporate and leisure demand that continues to grow as the city diversifies from an entertainment mecca to an international hub for technology, media, finance, trade, manufacturing and more,” Strauss said. “El Segundo in particular has experienced substantial growth with major firms located near the hotel including AT&T, Mattel, Boeing, Raytheon, and Spectrum.”

“The Hyatt Place El Segundo is well-positioned for continued growth in a dynamic market,” Chu said. “We’re grateful and honored for the opportunity to represent the seller on this important assignment, and excited for the buyer and the future of this hotel.”
