Aileron Management announces the acquisition of three hotel management contracts. This marks the company’s first two hotels in Wisconsin and first hotel in Iowa.

Aileron Management, a dynamic hospitality management company, announces the acquisition of three management contracts. Effective March 1, Aileron Management will manage the three upper-midscale hotels: Hampton Inn West Des Moines Lake Drive, Hampton Inn Appleton-Fox River Mall Area, and Hampton Inn Milwaukee/Brookfield.

Walker Reynolds, LLC, an affiliate of Aileron Management, identified these hotels as ones that fit their investment criteria: well-located, strong-branded hotels in dynamic markets with operational upside.  “The opportunity to simultaneously acquire three quality assets in strong sub-markets was initially very attractive to us.  Once we spent some time getting to know these hotels, we realized they were a perfect fit for our portfolio,” remarked Brett Rush, Managing Member of Walker Reynolds, LLC.

“We are excited to have these three Hampton Inns serve as our initial hotels under management,” says Jason Boehm, CEO of Aileron Management.  “Travelers love these hotels, as evidenced by their strong TripAdvisor scores, and they are well located in their markets.  We look forward to working with our hotel associates in producing memorable experiences for our guests and lasting impacts on those communities.”

The three new Hampton Inn by Hilton properties will include:

  • The Hampton Inn West Des Moines Lake Drive is ideal for both business and leisure travelers. The hotel is situated near the Wells Fargo West Des Moines Corporate Campus and is within 20 minutes of downtown central business district companies.
