Baywood Hotels acquired he 80-room Key Colony Bay Resort (formerly the Ramada Inn Marathon), a property located on four acres in the Middle Florida Keys, from The Peebles Corporation.
With RevPAR comparable to Miami Beach, the Florida Keys are a hot market with significant barriers to entry. Following purchases of such assets, most buyers see an opportunity to maximize their investment with significant upgrades, repositioning, and rebranding that transforms the property into an even more attractive destination.
