Trinity Investments Acquires Fifty Percent Interest in Omni San Diego Hotel

San Diego–(work wire) – An investment fund managed by Trinity Fund Advisors LLC, a subsidiary of Trinity Real Estate Investments LLC (“Trinity”), today announced the acquisition of a 50 percent stake in the Omni San Diego Hotel from JMI Realty, which developed the hotel in Originally jointly with Petco Park in 2004. Omni Hotels & Resorts (“Omni”) owns and will continue to operate the remaining fifty percent of the hotel. The acquisition also includes more than 13,000 square feet of fully leased retail space at street level, located across the street from the hotel.

Located in the heart of the historic Gaslamp District, adjacent to Petco Park and across from the San Diego Convention Center, the award-winning 511-key, AAA 4-Diamond Omni San Diego hotel is located in a very busy area and benefits from several demand generators. Trinity and Omni plan to take advantage of strategic opportunities, including a multi-million dollar capital improvement plan that includes a comprehensive guestroom renovation, reimagining its F&B offering, and enhancing the hotel’s rooftop pool deck, fitness center, and other amenities.

“We are thrilled to acquire what we believe is one of the best-located hotels in San Diego, and to partner with Omni to unleash the hotel’s full potential,” said Sean Heherr, Managing Partner, President and CEO of Trinity. “In partnership with Omni, our teams have identified several opportunities to generate higher revenue and position the hotel as a major destination in the business and leisure travel market.”

Over the past ten years, the San Diego housing market has shown strong growth as a major tourist destination, leisure destination, and a highly desirable location for business gatherings. The downtown area is undergoing significant redevelopment, with several large office and life sciences development projects in the pipeline, as well as the expected future expansion of the San Diego Convention Center, all of which are expected to increase demand for well-appointed hotels. In conjunction with their capital improvement plan, and factors in the area’s redevelopment activity, Trinity and Omni plan to transform existing demand segmentation into a higher rated group and cross business.

“This is a strategic and mutually important business alignment between Omni and Trinity Hotels and Resorts,” said Peter Strebel, President of Omni Hotels & Resorts. “We are particularly excited to partner with Trinity, given their existing portfolio of leading assets, and their dedication to enhancing the hotel’s presence and influence in the San Diego market.”

The Omni San Diego Hotel marks Trinity’s third acquisition on behalf of Trinity GP Fund I LP, Trinity’s first hybrid US hospitality fund, after its acquisition of 352 switches at EAST Miami and 305W Hollywood, earlier this year.
