Hawaiian Marriott Gets New Management Company

Behringer Harvard announced today that it has selected Davidson Hotel Company, one of the nation’s largest independent hotel management companies, to manage the beachfront 311-room Courtyard by Marriott Kauai at Coconut Beach in Hawaii. Acquired last month by a joint venture between Behringer Harvard and Austin, Texas-based JMI Realty, the former Aston Kauai Beach at Makaiwa Hotel is converting to the Courtyard by Marriott brand and undergoing a comprehensive renovation.

The Courtyard by Marriott Kauai at Coconut Beach, the first property in Hawaii to be managed by Davidson Hotel Company, overlooks Waipouli Beach on the east side of the island of Kauai, Hawaii’s “Garden Island.” Located 10 minutes north of Lihue Airport in the town of Kapa’a, it sits within the Royal Coconut Grove. The hotel’s guest rooms and suites comprise five wings with views of either the Pacific Ocean or the mountains of Kauai.
