ADAM'S MARK CHAIN OWNER SELLS 8 HOTELS

The parent company of the Adam's Mark hotel chain has sold eight of its properties but not the downtown Jacksonville hotel, according to published reports and the Web site of one of the companies buying the hotels. Among those sold are the hotels in Daytona Beach and Clearwater Beach.

Fred Kummer, head of St. Louis-based HBE Corp., which owns the Adam's Mark chain, told the St. Louis Post-Dispatch that he is keeping "the larger convention hotels, such as those in St. Louis, Dallas, Buffalo [N.Y.] and Jacksonville." However, he said those hotels may be reflagged.
