Elliot Eichner, a Principal of Sonnenblick-Eichner Company, commented, “The Cooper Hotels portfolio was marketed for both a fixed and floating rate execution. Ultimately, our client opted for a floating rate loan affording them maximum flexibility with respect to prepayment. Given the viability of the cash flow, excellent sponsorship, and ongoing capital investment in the properties, we had significant lender interest in the recapitalization.”

Patrick Brown, also a Principal of Sonnenblick-Eichner Company, added: “As a testament to our longstanding client relationships, this is the 3rd financing that we arranged for Cooper Hotels.”
