SAN FRANCISCO-Oxford Lodging Advisory & Investment Group of San Francisco has put under contract the 4,788-room Adams Mark hotel portfolio owned by HBE Corp. The portfolio includes five full-service properties located in five different cities: Dallas, Indianapolis, Buffalo, St. Louis and Denver.

The transaction is scheduled to close at the end of October. The purchase was not immediately available and, given the varying ages of the properties, comparables range from $50,000 per key to $200,000 per key. If the blended price came in at $125,000 per key, the deal value would be approximately $600 million.

A company source confirmed the pending transaction for, saying the company is in the process of streamlining its operations by focusing on its core design-build business. The sale would complete the company’s divestiture of its hotel assets, he says.
