PITTSBURGH-Concord Hospitality Enterprises has secured a $13.4-million loan to build a Courtyard by Marriott here, its ninth hotel in the market. The Raleigh, NC-based company is also on pace to double the total amount of hotels in its portfolio to about 100 properties.

S&T Bank, which has financed seven of Concord’s nine area hotels, provided the loan. The Courtyard by Marriott will have 124 rooms and be located in the 580,000-square-foot Settlers Ridge retail development being built by Faison at Parkway West and Ridge Road.

The hotel, already under construction, is to open in the spring of 2010. Other tenants planned for the Settlers Ridge development include P.F. Chang’s, Cinemark and a Market District grocery store, which is operated by Giant Eagle.

Concord currently has 11 hotels under construction. “We believe there are solid opportunities to develop hotels in all phases of the economy,” says Mark Laport, the company’s president and chief executive officer. “There are certain advantages to being a contrarian, if you have the expertise and the funding to back it up.”

Concord manages 50 hotels that contain just over 6,200 rooms. It operates assets under the banners Marriott Hotels and Resorts, Renaissance Hotels and Resorts, Hilton Garden Inn, Hampton Inn & Suites, Courtyard by Marriott, Residence Inn by Marriott, SpringHill Suites by Marriott, Fairfield Inn and Suites by Marriott, Fairfield Inn by Marriott, and MainStay Suites by Choice Hotels.
