Holly in Westampton, N.J., bringing its management portfolio to 27 properties. Kim Sims, president of Chesapeake Hospitality, made the announcement.
The 76-room, Holiday Inn Express Mt. Holly provides easy access to Philadelphia and all of southern New Jersey. The InnPlace Hotel Bensalem sits adjacent to the PARX Casino and Racetrack and will convert to a major brand upon completion of a renovation.

The Comfort Suites BWI is currently closed as it undergoes a comprehensive property renovation. It is scheduled to re-open under the Choice brand in the second quarter of this year.
“For Chesapeake Hospitality, 2013 was an exponential growth year. These three new property additions are part of a continuing strategy and also demonstrate our solid reputation in the industry for turnaround management,” said Sims. “While advancing our third-party management business will continue to be integral to our growth plan in 2014, we foresee implementing a multifaceted approach that also includes potential development prospects.”
