Grace Hotels teams up with Three Wall Capital to buy The Mayflower Inn and Spa

US: Grace Hotels has announced a partnership with an affiliate of Three Wall Capital LLC to acquire the Mayflower Inn and Spa in Washington, Connecticut.

Under the agreement Grace Hotels will become the majority owner of the five diamond/five star 30-room property and will manage the hotel under the Grace brand.  An affiliate of Three Wall Capital, LLC, who acquired the Mayflower in 2011 will remain a minority investor in the property.

In a move “designed to bring together under one marque some of the finest hotel, spa and restaurant properties in New England”, Grace has also announced that its sister hotel, The White Barn Inn in Kennebunk, Maine will become part of Grace Hotels.

The White Barn Inn and Grace Hotels are both part of the family-owned Libra Group which has hotel and hospitality interests throughout the world.

The White Barn and The Mayflower will retain their affiliation to the Relais & Chateaux, while the fine dining restaurant at the Mayflower will become New England’s second ‘Muse by Jonathan Cartwright’, joining the restaurant at The Vanderbilt Grace.

Philippe Requin, CEO of Grace Hotels said: “the Mayflower is a property that we have admired for many years. It combines a wonderfully convenient location close to New York with a peace and tranquillity that makes it a perfect country escape. We are thrilled that it is joining Grace Hotels and equally thrilled that The White Barn Inn is becoming part of the Grace family. As a sister property we have enjoyed a very close working relationship with The White Barn for many years. In fact the inn’s Grand Chef Relais & Chteaux Jonathan Cartwright has been our Group Chef de Cuisine for over two years. We believe this move signals to the growing international community of Grace Hotels’ loyal customers that our distinctive combination of service, style and elegant simplicity is now available at a selection of three of New England’s most celebrated addresses and holiday destinations.”
