TAMPA, Fla. - Feb. 9, 2014 - PRLog -- TAMPA, Florida: February 8, 2014 - Liberty Group ( is proud to announce the final closing of its first private equity real estate fund dedicated to the acquisition of upper mid-scale hotels.

Liberty Hospitality Fund I, LLC was fully capitalized in February 2014, and will deploy $75,000,000 in total capital towards hotel acquisitions over the next three years.

Liberty Group's most recent acquisition of the Holiday Inn Express & Suites in Bonita Springs, Florida represents its 24th acquisition since 2010, and its second investment through Liberty Hospitality Fund I.

Liberty acquired the 108-room hotel in February 2014 through an off-market transaction directly with the Seller for significantly less than replacement cost, and intends to invest in renovations to reposition the asset in mid 2014.

"Access to capital has provided us a distinct advantage in acquiring hotels since we can offer a quick and certain close, something that few buyers can match," said Punit Shah, President & Chief Operating Officer of the Liberty Group. "Liberty Hospitality Fund I allows us to continue expanding our hotel portfolio and creating operational efficiencies that add value to each of our investments."


Liberty Hospitality Fund I, LLC closed in February 2014 and will deploy  $75,000,000 in total capital with a disciplined focus on branded upper mid-scale hotels throughout the Southeastern United States. Liberty Group's principals significantly co-invested in the Fund to ensure an alignment of interests and to create performance-based incentives.  The Fund will act as Liberty's exclusive hotel investment vehicle during its investment period of three years.
