MIAMI, June 27, 2019 – JLL Hotels & Hospitality announces that the firm advised on the sale of the 1,047-key Boca Raton Resort & Club, a Waldorf Astoria Resort located in Boca Raton, Florida. MSD Partners, L.P. purchased this premier asset.

“Boca Raton Resort & Club is a truly irreplaceable trophy asset, a rare opportunity to acquire a generational resort,” said Rumpel.

Buoyed by strong economic fundamentals and a pro-business environment, South Florida lodging markets continue to perform incredibly well and are top targets among investors.”
