Ohana Real Estate Investors Unveils Rebranding of Napa and Sonoma Hotels

Hotel Centro Sonoma and The Knoll Napa Valley Rebranded to Join Tapestry Collection by Hilton

The Knoll Hotel Napa Valley

Ohana Real Estate Investors (Ohana), a vertically integrated real estate investment firm, announced the official rebranding of two boutique hotels in its robust portfolio of hotel and residential properties. Newly appointed Hotel Centro Sonoma Wine Country and The Knoll Hotel Napa Valley have joined Tapestry Collection by Hilton and are now appropriately positioned to maximize the value of these high-quality, newly developed properties, and elevate guests’ experiences as a result.

“We are excited to partner with Hilton to bring a new level of hospitality to these sought-after properties,” said Franco Famularo, President and Chief Investment Officer of Ohana Real Estate Investors. “The rebranding marks a significant milestone in our commitment in extracting greater value from these properties — not only for our investors, but for guests and members of the local communities as well.”

Ohana purchased both properties in late 2023. After extensive research and analysis, these properties presented a compelling investment opportunity compared to similar hotels in the wine country market. Utilizing its proprietary data and insights platform, the Ohana team developed a repositioning strategy that would define each hotel’s independent identity while gaining access to Hilton’s brand platform and distribution networks.

“Ohana continues to excel in uncovering opportunities that allow our internal expertise to unlock a higher level of efficiency,” said James Cole, Partner, Asset Management of Ohana Real Estate Investors. “We know that the association with Hilton will elevate guests’ experience and enhance the communities in which we operate.”

The four-story, 135-room Hotel Centro Sonoma has been elevated to cater to all guests, from business and leisure travelers to groups, offering a refined experience in the heart of Sonoma. The Knoll Hotel Napa Valley offers 90 rooms with close proximity to downtown Napa and prestigious wineries, ideal for both leisure and business travelers alike.
