Hotel finance lawyer: PACE Financing is now mainstream

Over the past five years, PACE financing has gained wider acceptance, and moved from a novel technique to a mainstream practical solution for financing. For more background on what PACE financing is, why it can be attractive, why it is becoming more popular and how JMBM’s attorneys can help, see PACE Financing – Now an accepted tool for hotel lenders and borrowers.

Our lawyers are at the leading edge of this important new trend. And we think that sharing some of our client’s successes with PACE financing may help others evaluate this tool for their own needs. So this is one in a series of successful PACE financing closings.

David Sudeck of the Global Hospitality Group® at Jeffer, Mangels, Butler & Mitchell LLP recently worked with a PACE financing source to close a retroactive $6 million PACE loan for the 105-room Kimpton La Peer Hotel in West Hollywood, CA. The property includes a full-service restaurant, pool and rooftop deck.

Hotel: Kimpton La Peer
Location: West Hollywood, CA
Size of PACE Loan: $6 million
