  • The Belamar Hotel, Manhattan Beach, California
  • Hilton Garden Inn at PGA Village, Port St. Lucie, Florida

Elliot Eichner, a Principal of Sonnenblick-Eichner Company, commented, “The borrower chose to refinance a majority of the loans prior to maturity. The cost of prepayment was mitigated by the lower cost of capital and the risk associated with the potential of higher interest rates in the future. The Borrower also realized pent-up equity they had in the portfolio.”

Patrick Brown, also a Principal of Sonnenblick-Eichner Company, added: “We were engaged to refinance loans we had previously arranged for the Borrower. Through our marketing efforts we were able to source financing quotes from multiple capital sources. The Borrower ultimately selected a CMBS execution to maximize proceeds and full term interest-only for most of the loans.”
