Real Estate - Europe

Supported by Somerston capital, our strategic acquisition, asset management and advisory arm, Somerston has undertaken the development of several million square feet of office, retail, primary healthcare and hotel property.  Somerston acquired, developed and operated a portfolio of 33 hotels under the Holiday Inn Express and Hampton by Hilton franchises. In late 2014, Lone Star acquired Somerston Hotels, combining it with their own UK limited service hotel assets and re-branding the enlarged portfolio as Atlas Hotels.
