New York-based hospitality investment firm MCR Hotels is continuing its expansion into the Puget Sound area. After its most recent acquisition in the region, the company is now the owner of a 170-room extended stay hotel in SeaTac. According to public records, the property, the Residence Inn SeaTac Airport hotel, was sold by Texas Western Hospitality for $53.125 million, or approximately $312,500 per room.
According to public records, the four-story hotel, which is located at 19608 International Boulevard, totals 112,765 square feet and was recently constructed in 2018. Additionally, the hotel’s website shows the extended stay property offers guests a variety of amenities, including high speed internet, a business center, dining areas and in-suite kitchens, a fitness center, bar and more.

While based in New York, this is not the company’s first reach into the Pacific Northwest. In July, the company purchased another extended stay Marriott in Renton. The acquisition of the 146-room Residence Inn by Marriott Seattle South/Renton was part of a larger $94 million transaction, which consisted of 674 hotel rooms in five hotels. Other hotels included in the purchase were the 132-room Courtyard by Marriott Dallas Plano/Richardson, located at 1805 East President George Bush Highway; the 129-room Residence Inn by Marriott Dallas Plano/Richardson at 1705 East President George Bush Highway; the 132-room Courtyard by Marriott Houston I-10 West/Park Row at 18010 Park Row Drive; and the 135-room Hampton Inn & Suites by Hilton Houston I-10 West/Park Row at 18014 Park Row Drive.
