Guest rooms are situated in the two-story wing and the four-story section, located within an hour of Chicago. GDR Hospitality LLC has operated this hotel for 10+ years.  

“The sale of Best Western Plus La Porte provided a great opportunity for the buyer to own the leading hotel and only full-service hotel in the market.  The hotel has been long standing in the La Porte community and the “go to” hotel for any events in the area,” commented Brandt Niehaus, President of Huff, Niehaus & Associates. The hotel sold for $4,500,000 on January 4, 2018.  The Best Western Plus franchise will be retained by the buyer, BRK Colorado Inc. of California, and significant capital for renovations will deploy.
