Newbond Holdings and Funds Managed by Apollo Global Management Acquire Hotel Tampa Riverwalk

The joint venture, the team’s second Tampa, Fla. hotel investment, focuses on repositioning an irreplaceable waterfront asset in dynamic downtown Tampa.

NEW YORK–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Newbond Holdings, a vertically integrated real estate investment and operating platform, founded by Neil Luthra and Vann Avedisian, is proud to announce the acquisition of the Hotel Tampa Riverwalk, formerly known as the Sheraton Tampa Riverwalk Hotel, in partnership with investment funds managed by an affiliate of Apollo (NYSE: APO). The ownership team has selected Schulte Hospitality Group to run the day-to-day operations and management of the hotel.

The 277-room property, located on top of the Hillsborough River Riverwalk in downtown Tampa, Fla. was delivered unencumbered of the Sheraton flag and management, and will undergo an operational and namesake rebrand as Hotel Tampa Riverwalk. Ownership plans to implement a comprehensive renovation to guestrooms and public areas, as well as introduce a re-conceptualized waterfront restaurant, positioning the hotel to become downtown Tampa’s first premier urban waterfront resort.

The Hotel Tampa Riverwalk stretches across 200 feet of riverfront frontage and features an expansive outdoor pool, waterfront dining, and 12,000 square feet of meeting space. It is the only hotel with direct access to the Riverwalk Boulevard, a 3-mile pedestrian boardwalk that connects riverfront parks, restaurants, bars, museums, and businesses. Additionally, the hotel is located walking distance from 10 million square feet of CBD office space, the Tampa Convention Center, Amalie Arena, and Water Street Tampa, a transformational $3 billion, 53-acre redevelopment that has delivered 3,500 new residential units, an iconic cultural arts pavilion, 1 million square feet of retail and cultural spaces, and 2 million square feet of office space.
