Sandpiper Hospitality – a Virginia-based hotel management company with vast expertise in the extended-stay segment – is excited to announce that it has been awarded the management contract for the Courtyard by Marriott Fort Collins.

The hotel is owned by a subsidiary of 44 Group Hospitality Investments.

The stylish Courtyard by Marriott Fort Collins offers a prime northern Colorado location, offering easy access to Colorado State University, New Belgium Brewery and downtown Fort Collins, which served as the inspiration for Main Street USA at Disneyland.

The hotel features 112 spacious guest rooms, all with luxury bedding, a well-lit work space and complimentary WiFi. Amenities at the dog-friendly hotel include an indoor pool and hot tub, outdoor fire pits, a fitness center and a convenience store.

The hotel will undergo a major renovation starting later this year.

“We are thrilled to add this Colorado hotel to our portfolio and look forward to a successful long-term relationship,” said Sandpiper Hospitality Vice President of Business Development, Victor Cruz. “This is our first third-party management contract for a Marriott-branded hotel and we see great potential to continue expanding the Sandpiper Hospitality footprint with third-party management. Our team is deep, talented and extremely focused on client ROI.”

Sandpiper Hospitality continues to expand its roster of hotels, adding 17 new properties to its management portfolio in the past 12 months, including three newly developed Wyndham Hotels & Resorts properties in Texas. The additions include a first-of its kind dual-branded La Quinta Inn / Hawthorn Suites in Pflugerville, TX, along with the WoodSpring Suites Orlando I-4 & Convention Center in Florida for new client Sunburst Hospitality.
