Lodging Finance Arranges Loan for Purchase of Underperforming Hotel

Purchase Financing

Lodging Finance recently arranged a purchase loan for an economy hotel along the Rte. 5 corridor in California.  The property had been underperforming and was in need of substantial updating.  This was a projection-based loan, as the past performance was unfavorable.  We negotiated a loan that required only 15% down payment.  This allowed the buyers to keep more of their capital on hand to complete the Property Improvement Program (PIP) and brand conversion.

What we liked about the deal:  The Buyers had experience in turning around hotels, and the projections were thoughtful and made sense.

Loan Term:  25 years

Notable Closings

Foreclosure Bailout

We recently arranged a very complicated loan for a client facing foreclosure, collateralizing multiple properties to pay off 3 loans that were deeply in arrears (a sale date was pending), including a construction loan, and on top of that we provided working capital to the owner to help him get his business back on track.

 

Construction Financing

Lodging Finance participated in arranging a ground-up construction loan for a boutique luxury hotel in Menlo Park, CA. The $25,000,000 loan facility was provided as a non-recourse liability to the Sponsors.

 

Debt Consolidation and PIP Financing

Lodging Finance recently arranged a $4,500,000 loan that included an $800,000 line of credit for both working Capital and for completing a Property Improvement Plan (PIP) to upgrade this independent, exterior corridor hotel located in Pacifica, CA.
