Two Marriott brand hotels totaling 372 keys along the Hudson River in Weehawken were sold, according to a Thursday announcement from JLL’s Hotel and Hospitality Group.
JLL represented the seller, Veris Residential, in the all-equity sale to Navika Capital Group LLC. The hotels were offered unencumbered by management.
The portfolio includes the 208-key EnVue Autograph Collection Port Imperial and the 164-key Residence Inn Port Imperial.
The hotels, which opened in 2019 and 2018, respectively, operate under one building complex at the center of the $4 billion mixed-use development that is in the final phases at Port Imperial. The property features a collective 15,000 square feet of outdoor space, over 27,000 square feet of meeting and conference space, a fully equipped fitness center and unobstructed views of the New York City skyline.
Situated along the Hudson River and located immediately adjacent to the Port Imperial Ferry Terminal, the hotels provide guests with seamless access to Manhattan via the NY Waterways ferry, which provides regular service to the West 39th Street Ferry Terminal in Midtown Manhattan and the Brookfield Place and Pier 11 Terminals in Downtown Manhattan. As a result of this connectivity, guests can easily visit New York’s biggest attractions, including Hudson Yards, the High Line, Penn Station, Wall Street, the Battery, New York City Hall, One World Trade Center and more. Furthermore, the hotel is proximate to Newark Liberty International Airport, which is the 12th-busiest airport in the U.S.
JLL’s Hotels & Hospitality Group has completed more transactions than any other hotels and hospitality real estate adviser over the last five years, totaling $83 billion worldwide.
