Northwest Arkansas has one of the fastest-growing economies in the nation. During Q4 2021, job creation was more than twice the national rate and nonfarm payrolls had surpassed pre-pandemic levels. Further, the Springdale–Rogers MSA debuted at #8 on Milken Institute’s list of the top 10 Best Performing Large Cities of 2022. This impressive showing, up from #15 the previous year, was based on the region’s strong job, wage, and tech growth.

The Hotel’s RevPAR most recently peaked in 2019 at $77.48, ranking it 3 of 7 in its peer set with a 107.6% RevPAR index and a 28% NOI margin.
PIP-required upgrades, which are expected to be relatively minimal, and improved revenue management strategies will allow new owners to increase ADR, which was ranked 4 of 7 in 2019, and drive additional occupancy growth.
2205 Walton Boulevard is in a premier commercial corridor and is easily accessible and highly visible to over 40,000 vehicles traveling along Walton Boulevard each day.
Enhanced expense efficiencies will result in additional NOI upside, as NOI margins for premium select-service assets are typically benchmarked at 35%+.
The Hotel is offered unencumbered of both debt and management which allows a new investor to effectively implement a business plan that aligns with their investment strategy and an operating model that will serve to improve top and bottom-line performance.
A new investor will have a remarkable opportunity to acquire the Property at a significant discount to replacement cost. Given the ability to acquire the Property at an extremely attractive basis, a new owner will increase their overall return and profitability for their investors.
