IT BEGINS WITH A VISION
Founder Robert Finvarb has been a real estate developer and investor since 2002 and has been a pioneer in developing mixed-use urban select service hotels in high barrier to entry markets throughout the United States. Over the years, he has led the development efforts for the 174-room Marriott Courtyard Hotel in Dania Beach, Florida, the 123-room Residence Inn by Marriott hotel in Chantilly (Dulles Airport South), Virginia, the 135-room Residence Inn by Marriott hotel in Tallahassee, Florida, the 133-room Residence Inn by Marriott hotel in Melbourne, Florida, the 208-room Residence Inn by Marriott – Desert View at Mayo Clinic and the 218-room Courtyard by Marriott hotel in Washington, DC.
In addition to these projects, RFC acquired the former Doubletree Hotel in Coconut Grove, FL and in the ensuing 12 months completely renovated and rebranded the hotel into a Courtyard by Marriott. Shortly following the acquisition of the Doubletree in Coconut Grove, RFC opened the 198-room Springhill Suites by Marriott – Miami Airport East/Medical Center as well as acquired the 161-room SpringHill Suites by Marriott in Lincolnshire, Illinois. Following this most recent acquisition, RFC developed the first SpringHill Suites in Manhattan in partnership with Hidrock Realty, a New York based developer, which contained 173 rooms. More Recently, RFC has developed South Florida’s very first 150-room AC Hotel by Marriott-Miami Beach as well as the 105-room Hyatt Centric South Beach. In addition to its involvement with the asset management for its portfolio of hotels, containing over 2000 rooms, the Company is also currently involved with the development of a Courtyard by Marriott in New York City that will contain over 300 rooms together with a 194-room Residence Inn by Marriott in Sunny Isles Beach, Florida. RFC is also further involved with the development of approximately 20 acres of land in the gaming corridor of Las Vegas, Nevada.
RFC has a reputation for developing high-quality assets and possesses a track record of success in all market cycles. As a private company, the principals invest their own equity in all projects and are personally involved in all phases of the project. For over a decade, RFC has carefully cultivated its reputation of excellence in the hospitality industry. In addition to developing its projects from the land acquisition stage to their opening, RFC oversees the sales, marketing, accounting and administration functions that are primarily undertaken by its management staff at each hotel with a sophisticated cadre of in-house professionals.
