MMI Hotel Group will assume management of the Vue Hotel and Restaurant located in Natchez, MS effective September 29th. The hotel was recently acquired by Riverview Hotel Management, a limited liability company formed by local investors and businessmen.
Beyond the daily operations, the hotel management company will be assisting the ownership with re-branding the property as well as any upgrade and renovation efforts associated with the acquisition.
MMI Hotel Group is the hotel management company division of MMI Hospitality headquartered in Flowood, MS.
“It will be the company’s first managed property in Natchez.” Micajah Sturdivant, President of MMI Hotel Group, says. “The company is excited to be entering the Natchez market and partnering with local, successful leadership.”
The company currently owns, operates or manages select and full service hotels across the Southeastern United States and over 50 locations where it manages the food & beverage operations of non-hotel properties through MMI Dining Services.
“The company is currently pursuing more management opportunities across the Southeast,” said Jack Warner, Director of Strategic Partnerships. “This partnership in Natchez further demonstrates the future of our management company. We are partnering with local ownership that are taking a distressed asset and wanting to make it something the community is proud of. We are actively looking for hotel ownership that needs assistance in turning around or developing a property and creating a larger return on investment.”
