Sonnenblick-Eichner Company Arranges $35, 000, 000 of First Mortgage Financing for The Inn at the Market, Seattle, Washington

, . Nov 29, 2017 - 

BEVERLY HILLS, CA. November 29, 2017 – Sonnenblick-Eichner Company has arranged $35, 000, 000 of first mortgage financing for the iconic 76-room luxury boutique Inn at the Market hotel in Seattle, Washington.

The hotel is located at the world-famous Pike Place Market, the most popular and recognizable destination in downtown Seattle. The hotel is currently ranked #1 of 100 hotels on TripAdvisor in Seattle.

The financing, provided by a Wall Street investment bank, was a non-recourse, 10-year fixed rate loan with 5 years of interest-only payments.

The Inn at the Market has historically been a rate leader in the downtown Seattle market. Amenities include four restaurants, four high-end retail outlets, and a rooftop deck with views of Elliott Bay, the Puget Sound, and the Olympic Mountains.

Elliot Eichner, Principal of Sonnenblick-Eichner Company commented, “The loan recapitalized our client’s recent all-cash purchase of a controlling interest in the ownership entity. Given the location of the property adjacent to Pike Place Market, that Seattle is the fastest growing major city in the U.S., and a recent capital investment of approximately $126, 000 per key, we were able to obtain 20 competitive financing quotes.”

“The financing of approximately $460, 000 per key is one of the highest in Seattle to-date, ” commented Patrick Brown, also a Principal of Sonnenblick-Eichner Company.

Mobile Technology: Relentless Innovation

Technology has become a crucial component in attracting and retaining hotel guests, and the need to enhance a guest’s technology experience is driving a relentless pace of innovation. To meet and exceed guest expectations, 54% of hotels will spend more on technology in 2018, and mobile solutions in particular will top the list of capital investments. Many hotels are integrating mobile booking, mobile keys, mobile payments and mobile check-in into their operations. Other hotels are emphasizing the in-room experience, boosting bandwidth and upgrading flat screen TVs to more easily interface with guest mobile devices. And though not yet mainstream, there are many exciting technology developments on the near horizon. The Internet of Things (loT) is taking form in some places, and can be found in guest room control systems, voice activation systems, and in wearable sensors that can be used for access and payment options. Virtual reality headsets are available at some hotels so guests can enjoy virtual trips to exotic locations or if off-property, preview conference facilities and guest rooms. How long will it be before a hotel employs a fleet of robots for room service, or utilizes a hologram as a concierge, or installs gesture-controlled walls that feature interactive digital displays? Some hotels are already using augmented reality for translation services, or interactive wall maps, or even virtual décor. This pace of innovation is challenging property owners and brands to stay on top of the latest technology trends while still addressing current projects. The January Hotel Business Review will explore what some hotels are doing to maximize their opportunities in the mobile technology space.
