Summit Hotel Properties has completed the sale of Hilton Garden Inn San Francisco Airport North hotel in California, US for $75m.

The transaction was completed through Summit Hotel Properties’ joint venture (JV) with Singapore-based firm GIC.

With the completion of the transaction, the joint venture has also dropped plans of conducting a comprehensive renovation of the hotel, which was scheduled to take place later this year.

The renovation plan was anticipated to be around $7.1m or $42,000 per key.

The JV estimates the deal to result in $20.5m net gain on the sale.

According to Summit Hotel Properties, net proceeds from the sale are estimated to be around $73m, out of which $37m will be the company’s share.

Summit Hotel Properties is planning to the existing cash and the net sale proceeds to repay the remaining debt maturity of $62m from the current year.
