Prominence Hospitality Group expands its portfolio with Courtyard by Marriott Albion. This hotel, owned by Albion College, is part of downtown's redevelopment and represents the second Michigan-based and fourth Marriott property within the Prominence portfolio.

Prominence Hospitality Group, a Chicago-based real estate investment, development, and hotel management company, has entered into a contract with Albion College to manage its hotel Courtyard by Marriott Albion. This hotel is a core anchor in the redevelopment of the downtown area of Albion.

“The resurgence of downtown Albion is inspiring and exciting,” said Dhaval Brahmbhatt, principal, Prominence Hospitality Group. “The opportunity to be a part of the invigoration of Albion only adds to our own company’s growth trajectory as we expand within the Midwest region.”

This is the second Michigan-based hotel and fourth Marriott property to join Prominence portfolio. The hotel located near Albion College has 75 keys and offers a prime location with new bars, restaurants, Bohm Theatre, a children’s museum, and easy access to the industrial district, Prominence said in a statement.

“The opening of the Marriott in downtown Albion in 2018 was a major catalyst in the resurgence we are now seeing in the area,” said Joe Calvaruso, interim president, Albion College. “The selection of Prominence to manage the hotel was a natural fit for this property, with their growth strategies closely aligned with those of the Albion community. Prominence is hyper-focused on creating a memorable guest experience while building asset value and creating and empowering strong leadership at the property.”
