SIOUX FALLS, SD – May 9, 2017 – The 120-room Hilton Garden Inn hotel in Rapid City, South Dakota has been acquired by an affiliate of Hegg Companies, Inc. of Sioux Falls, S.D.
“The Rapid City Hilton Garden Inn is the premier hotel in the area and we are proud of this acquisition. Securing a Hilton property in western South Dakota has been our focus for quite some time,” said Paul Hegg, president and CEO of Hegg Companies. “We have always loved the Rapid City region and have been developers here since 1991. The market is dynamic, in the heart of the Black Hills, and a major tourism hub. Not only does this acquisition build on our existing relationship with Hilton, but it also broadens the geography of our portfolio in our home state of South Dakota.”
The four-story Hilton Garden Inn is located at 815 East Mall Drive in Rapid City, right off Interstate 90. It is within an hour drive from many Black Hills attractions and National Parks, such as Mount Rushmore, Badlands National Park, Devils Tower, and Wind Cave National Park.
Built in 2011, the hotel features over 6,000 square feet of meeting and banquet space and an on-site, full-service American cuisine restaurant and bar. In addition, the hotel has an indoor swimming pool and whirlpool, a 24-hour business center, and a 24-hour fitness center.
The hotel will continue operating as a Hilton Garden Inn by Hegg Hospitality Management, LLC, under franchise from Hilton. The deal takes Hegg Companies’ portfolio of managed hotel properties to nine, four of which are now Hilton Garden Inn brands.
