Aimbridge Hospitality, the world’s leading third-party hotel management company, announces that it has been selected to manage Hammock Beach Resort.
Hammock Beach Resort is owned by Tampa-based KDG Capital, a private equity fund focused on investing in institutional grade hospitality assets. KDG Capital targets high quality, full-service convention hotels in select high-growth markets.
