No Vacancy: Y&C Pacific nabs Whittier hotel.

A102-room hotel in Whittier has sold for roughly $8 million, Sherman Oaks-based Lee & Associates announced Jan. 2.

West Hollywood-based Y&C Pacific purchased the property from Andy Investment Co., of Whittier.

Lee & Associates Multifamily Advisory Group’s National Director Warren Berzack represented the buyer and the seller in the transaction.

The hotel, a Good Night Inn, is located at 10317 Whittier Blvd.

“This property had been owned by the seller for more than 30 years, and there was no franchise agreement in place, so it presented an ideal reposition and rebranding opportunity for a new buyer,” Berzack said in a statement.

CBRE Hotels’ 2019 Southern California Lodging Forecast estimated the market occupancy in the Whittier/I-5 Corridor at 79.9 percent in 2018. It is expected to fall to 79.5 percent in 2019. The group expects the average daily rate, however, to rise from $150.76 to $154.53.
