WASHINGTON, DC - October 29, 2018  -- Brown Rudnick represented client Queensgate Investments in the acquisition of a 148-room hotel property in the bustling Dupont Circle area of Washington, DC. The property, currently a Courtyard by Marriott, will be rebranded in late 2019 under Queensgate's Generator brand, which Brown Rudnick helped the firm purchase last year.

Generator is one of the world's fastest growing lifestyle hospitality brands providing unique experience and design-led accommodation in the most central locations, with 15 assets across 14 cities in Europe and the U.S., including London, Dublin, Copenhagen, Venice, Barcelona, Paris, Amsterdam, Stockholm and Rome. In September 2018, Generator opened its first U.S. hotel on South Beach, Miami.

Jonathan Millet, Head of Acquisitions of Queensgate said: "The acquisition of the Washington D.C. asset marks the next step in Queensgate's U.S. ambitions as we look to acquire both additional hotel assets to expand Generator as well as working on the acquisition of new standalone real estate platforms of significant scale."

The Brown Rudnick team working on the transaction included attorneys Nicholas Vasquez, Thomas J. Phillips, Thomas J. Regan, Tuvi Keinan, Adam B. Cantor, Jennifer Ihns Charles, Franca DeRosa, Jeffrey A. Huebschmann, Gordon R. Penman, Elena Rey Sabinina, Stephanie Bollheimer, Lauren Grillo, Adriana Henquen, Eric Jedrychowski, and Peter Wozny.
