Sortis Holdings Acquires Historic Downtown Seattle Mayflower Hotel

Sortis (OTC: SOHI), a Portland, Oregon-based alternative investment fund manager, has acquired a 50% interest in the Mayflower Park Hotel in Seattle, Washington. The hotel is located immediately adjacent to the retail core, just blocks from Amazon’s headquarters to the northeast and Pike Place Market to the west.

The historic Mayflower Park Hotel dates to 1927 and has been under the same ownership for the past 55 years. The Sortis acquisition will allow the hotel to exit the COVID-19 crisis refreshed, drawing from the owner’s knowledge and contacts while upgrading and digitizing operations. Oliver’s, the hotel’s famous martini bar, is now open and serving a light dinner on a new bistro menu. Sortis will manage the property directly to keep operations lean during the ramp up post-COVID.

Sortis has made several recent acquisitions in the hospitality space and added seasoned hospitality veteran David Vialli to the team. Sortis also recently completed an investment in the Ace Hotel in Portland, a bankruptcy rescue of Rudy’s Barbershop, an acquisition of Bamboo Sushi, and an investment in Blue Star Donuts through its Sortis Rescue Fund.

“We are thrilled to work with the team at the Mayflower Park Hotel and are grateful they have welcomed us into their family. 93 years of amazing stories and memories will live on and grow as we continue to act on our pledge of truly personal attention,” said Sortis’ David Vialli.

The Seattle Market was a top 5 market prior to the onset of COVID-19 shutdowns. Given the explosion in technology and cloud-based computing over the last year and the already visible recovery of Seattle’s workforce and urban neighborhoods, the Seattle area should continue to see demand post-COVID. Between Amazon’s office reopening scheduled for June 2021 and the 2022 completion of the new Seattle Convention Center, Sortis anticipates pent-up demand for downtown lodging.

“We are excited to be partners in this great historic property. Birney and Marie Dempcy have been great stewards for the last 50 plus years and we are intent on maintaining the tradition going forward,” stated Sortis’ Executive Chairman Paul Brenneke.
