Offering Overview

Hodges Ward Elliott, in conjunction with RealINSIGHT Marketplace, is pleased to present the opportunity to acquire the fee-simple interest in the 237-room Holiday Inn Corpus Christi Airport ("Property") a well-located hotel that is currently lender-owned, offering tremendous upside and repositioning potential for a new owner.

The Property features an excellent location within the booming Corpus Christi market, central to its International Airport, Downtown, Gulf Coast beaches, and the expanding Port (currently being widened and deepened for increased capacity). In addition to the Port of Corpus Christi channel expansion, another massive multi-year development is underway nearby in the Harbor Bridge Project – a $930-million investment that is the largest publicly funded infrastructure effort in Texas.

The Holiday Inn has historically generated significant cash flow (revenue of ±$4.6M just prior to Covid) and been well maintained, however now offers a unique opportunity to renovate within the existing IHG program, or convert to a different brand or alternative use (e.g. residential).

The non-union Property is offered unencumbered of management and debt.
