(Jan. 3, 2020) The Carousel Group has joined developer Jack Burbage in a partnership that will manage the Fenwick Inn on 138th Street, making it the seventh addition to the company.
“When the hotel became available, we spoke about it, and Jack and I agreed it would make the perfect Carousel Group hotel given its location and the history of the hotel,” Michael James, president and COO of Hospitality Partners, and managing partner of the Carousel Group, said.
The deal was closed on Friday, Dec. 20. Burbage will be the majority owner of the hotel, while the Carousel Group will manage it. Work will begin later this month. The hotel will briefly close for a few weeks of January and February to do some minor work.
“The hotel has great bones,” James said. “So, we’re going to do a lot of improvements to the hotel. We’re going to start in [later] January with some of the improvements and get it ready for summer.”
The hotel will reopen for the summer season and go into further construction in the fall.
“It’s been a very well-known and established hotel in Ocean City for a very long time,” James said. “Jack and I are both proud to add it to the Carousel Group and we think it’s just going to be great.”
