The Tampa-based hotel developer and operator Liberty Group has acquired five hotels in the Southeast, bringing the company's total hotel fleet to 27.

When the company's Aloft hotel opens in downtown Tampa this July, that number will grow to 28.

In the meantime, Liberty acquired the five other from the Intercontinental-branded properties from a series of lenders and banks that had taken back possession of the hotels from the previous operators. Most of the sites will retain their brand names, though one will switch flags. The purchase price was not yet disclosed, but Liberty Chief Executive Officer Punit Shah confirmed the original development costs for the properties.

Ramada Plaza Tallahassee Capitol Hill hotel......CROSSED OFF MY LIST if I visit Tallahassee. Aside from a stay at Aloft, I'm going to try and steer clear of any Liberty-owned hotels after what happened with Channelside.

BTW: Here's the listing of all of the properties they've acquired.

Again, just a point that regardless of Liberty's involvement with these hotels, they are full of hardworking employees that need their jobs.

Not that your stand to boycott them will make any difference even at the lowest levels.

Stay at a place that offers you what you want, you could literally boycott the entire hotel industry if you dug a little into their closets.
