WASHINGTON, D.C. – June 14, 2018 – Holliday Fenoglio Fowler, L.P. (HFF) announces the sale and acquisition financing of Westin Reston Heights, a 191-room, full-service hotel in the Washington, D.C.-area community of Reston, one of Northern Virginia’s most dynamic and growing areas.
The HFF team marketed the property on behalf of the seller. Noble Investment Group purchased the hotel and will soon implement a comprehensive guest room and public area upgrade and renovation. Additionally, working on behalf of the new owner, the HFF team arranged a floating-rate acquisition loan with a balance sheet lender.
The Westin Reston Heights opened in 2008 and features a 24-hour business center; the award-winning Vinifera Wine Bar & Bistro; 1,000 square feet of flexible meeting and boardroom space; Westin Kids Club and various fitness outlets, including the rooftop WestinWORKOUT® Fitness Studio with a heated indoor pool, RunWestin program with custom local running maps and the Westin New Balance program, which provides guests athletic shoes and apparel they can borrow during their stay. Situated at 11750 Sunrise Valley Drive, the hotel is in the heart of the Reston Master Plan, consisting of 22,000 new residential units, more than eight million square feet of new office space and 700,000 square feet of additional retail. The pet-friendly hotel is also located directly off of the Dulles Toll Road, which averages 270,000 daily trips and allows immediate vehicular access throughout the D.C. MSA. Additionally, The Westin Reston Heights will be within walking distance of the future Reston Town Center Metrorail Station (Silver Line), which is expected to be completed in 2019. The future station will include a pedestrian walk along Reston Parkway, which will provide direct access to the Westin in less than a 0.5-mile walk.
