Colorado-based McWHINNEY recently purchased the Hyatt House Irvine/John Wayne Airport in Irvine, California. The hospitality-focused real estate developer and investor also owns The Maven Hotel at Dairy Block in downtown Denver, The Elizabeth Hotel in Fort Collins, AC Hotel Portland in Oregon and the Hyatt House Denver Airport Hotel.

The 149-room Hyatt House Irvine/John Wayne Airport opened in December 2017 and features 1,160 square feet of meeting space. The hotel’s amenities include free, property-wide Wi-Fi, a 24-hour market, a fitness center, complimentary breakfast, an outdoor pool and access to grills and fire pits. Hyatt Hotels will continue to manage the property post-purchase.

“McWHINNEY is excited to be adding another Southern California hotel to our hospitality portfolio,” says Chief Investment Officer of Hospitality Dave Johnstone. “This new property offers an extensive list of amenities, including a great central location and free airport shuttle service.”

Hyatt House Irvine/John Wayne’s Central Business District location allows for quick access to Disneyland, Knott’s Berry Farm, Laguna and Newport Beaches and John Wayne Airport.

McWHINNEY was founded in 1991 and has since developed more than 6,000 acres of communities and over 6.5 million square feet of vertical commercial and mixed-use properties in the western United States. The company has offices in Loveland and Denver.
