VIRGINIA BEACH, VA. — Lingerfelt CommonWealth Partners LLC will acquire the Virginia Beach Resort Hotel & Conference Center, a 295-room hotel located at 2800 Shore Drive in Virginia Beach, for $19 million. The Richmond, Va.-based company plans to invest $25 million to renovate the property, and will rebrand it as Delta Hotel by Marriott, a hospitality brand designed for business and leisure travelers. The 263,328-square-foot property is situated on 3.6 acres along the Chesapeake Bay. Commonwealth Lodging Management LLC, Lingerfelt’s hotel management affiliate, will operate and manage the hotel. The Virginia Beach Development Authority has approved an Economic Development Investment Program grant of $200,000 based on the company’s capital investment of $25 million. The new operators will continue to run the hotel through the season and close it sometime in October to complete the 14-month renovation project, according to Warren Harris, director of Virginia Beach Economic Development.
