Additionally, PHG has four ground-up development projects in its pipeline: the 100-room Courtyard by Marriott Kennesaw, Ga., the 106-room Home2 Jacksonville, Fla., the 91-room Home2 Prattville, Ala. and the 98-room Hilton Garden Inn Jackson, Tenn.

"Building off of a very successful 2014 that saw the addition of 14 assets to our portfolio of select- and limited-service hotels in major urban and secondary markets, we continue to take proactive steps to enhance and expand our portfolio," said Greg Friedman, Peachtree CEO.

"We are active in all three growth platforms: acquiring, upgrading and development. With the industry expected to enjoy continued, though measured, rate and occupancy growth for the next two to five years, we continue to implement our aggressive growth strategy," said Jatin Desai, chief investment officer.

The four hotels under development are expected to break ground within the next nine months. The Home2 Prattville is expected to be break ground by Nov 1, 2015, the Home2 Jacksonville by March 2016 and the Hilton Garden Inn Jackson by June 2016. PHG will own and operate these three hotels on its own behalf. The Courtyard by Marriott Kennesaw broke ground earlier this October and is expected to be completed by October 2016. Peachtree will providedevelopment and management services for the Courtyard.

"We believe that strategic development at this phase of the cycle offers the potential for sustained growth and are deploying capital in select markets," said Mitul Patel, chief operating officer. "Although development is increasing, it remains at relatively moderate levels in most markets, which mitigates the effects of overbuilding. Our development profile is focused on growth markets with multiple demand generators and high barriers to new entry. We have excellent relationships with all the premier brand families and will continue to develop within those brands."
