The 115-room facility at 1595 Post Road East occupies more than three acres and features an indoor pool, fitness facility, meeting space, and restaurant and lounge. It was bought by Ranger Properties LLC.

“The new owner plans to extensively renovate and reposition the inn, so the Westport Inn will be taken to an even higher level of accommodations and service,” said Joe McCann, president of Philadelphia-based Optimum Hotel Brokerage, the firm which represented the seller in the transaction.

McCann, a former Westport resident, added, “With Westport’s high land costs and prohibitive zoning restrictions, the hotel is situated at the epicenter of one of the highest barriers-to-entry markets in the country.”
