                                    MCR, the 4th-largest hotel owner-operator in the U.S. expands its Midwest footprint with the acquisition of the 102-room Home2 Suites by Hilton Evansville in Indiana.

There’s a reason Indiana is called the Crossroads of America! Located within three hours of Louisville, St. Louis, Nashville and Indianapolis, the Home2 Suites by Hilton Evansville is in the centre point of the Midwest. Evansville offers small-town culture with big city features, including the Evansville Regional Airport, which has frequent daily flights to major cities across the U.S.

This summer, Evansville is celebrating freedom with a bang! Fireworks on Ohio, the city’s waterfront Independence Day celebration on the Ohio River, returns this Fourth of July after a 2020 hiatus. An annual favourite for locals and visitors, the event is free for spectators and features food trucks, vendors and Evansville’s largest public fireworks display.

MCR Purchases the Hilton Garden Inn Louisville Mall of St. Matthews in Derby City

MCR Purchases the Hilton Garden Inn Louisville Mall of St. Matthews in Derby City




MCR takes the lead! The country’s 4th-largest hotel owner-operator has acquired the 150-room Hilton Garden Inn Louisville Mall of St. Matthews in the heart of Kentucky.

The hotel is 10 minutes from Louisville International Airport and 15 minutes to downtown Louisville. But the real attraction is just a short drive away at the legendary Churchill Downs, home of the Kentucky Derby, the first race in the coveted thoroughbred Triple Crown.

While the world waits with unbridled enthusiasm to find out whether this year’s winning colt, Medina Spirit, will keep his title, there’s plenty of action in town for hot-to-trot fans. Summer racing continues through Fourth of July weekend and a special Bourbon Heritage Month meet is scheduled in September. Fall racing runs from October until Thanksgiving weekend.

When it comes to Louisville lodging, back the right horse! The newly built Hilton Garden Inn features sleek furnishings, an indoor pool and a spacious lobby. Breakfast and a seasonal menu of favourites (flatbreads! burgers!) are cooked to order at the Garden Grille & Bar.

MCR Purchases the Hilton Garden Inn Beaufort

Fightertown, here we come! The nation’s 4th-largest hotel owner-operator acquires the Hilton Garden Inn Beaufort in the heart of the South Carolina coast.

The latest member of the squadron! MCR — the country’s 4th-largest hotel owner-operator — has acquired the 115-room Hilton Garden Inn Beaufort in South Carolina’s beautiful Lowcountry region.

The hotel is just a 40-minute drive to Hilton Head Island and less than an hour from the Spanish moss splendour of Savannah, Georgia. But the real action is minutes away at the U.S. Marine Corps Air Station, one of the only places in the world where pilots train to operate F-35B Lightning II jets, which can reach speeds of Mach 1.6 (that’s about 1,200 miles per hour in civilian language). Grab your aviators and practice your call signs because Tom Cruise has nothing on the daring flyers of Fightertown East.

On neighbouring Parris Island, you’ll find the Marine Corps Recruit Depot, the primary training centre for generations of Marines since 1915. The base welcomes more than 17,000 recruits annually. In town to celebrate a new graduate? Bunk at the Hilton Garden Inn Beaufort and say “Semper Fi” with a hand-crafted cocktail at the fully stocked bar.

California Dreamin’...................MCR Acquires the Staybridge Suites Cathedral City Palm Springs


Going once, going twice, sold! MCR — the country’s 4th-largest hotel owner-operator — won the foreclosure auction for the 197-room Staybridge Suites Cathedral City Palm Springs, an IHG Hotel, on the Corona City Hall steps on April 7, 2021, at 9:30 AM. The acquisition marks MCR’s expansion into the California market as the Staybridge Suites joins MCR’s portfolio of 110 hotels across 33 states.

In the heart of the Coachella Valley, the all-suite hotel is just 10 minutes from Palm Springs Airport, 15 minutes from downtown Palm Springs and a two-hour drive to star-studded Los Angeles. If you’re searching for desert feels this summer, look no further! Next year, festival vibes will be in the air as Coachella and Stagecoach get rolling again.

Newly redesigned, the Palm Springs downtown plaza is renowned for its locally-owned restaurants, one-of-a-kind boutiques, art galleries and antique shops. A popular home to movie stars and Presidents (Dwight Eisenhower and Ronald Reagan both settled in the city) since the 1930s, the area is full of old Hollywood glamour. Stroll along Palm Canyon Drive and Museum Way to glimpse the Walk of the Stars, which honours more than 440 famous residents, including Elvis Presley, Lena Horne and Marilyn Monroe.

Take advantage of sunshiny SoCal’s annual 300-plus days of rays: Hike nearby Tahquitz Canyon or drive through the valley to Joshua Tree National Park, which is visited by more than 3 million travellers each year.
