Sonnenblick-Eichner Company Arranges $50 Million Loan for Provenance Hotels to Refinance Hotel Theodore in Seattle, WA

USA, Beverly Hills, California. July 26, 2018

Sonnenblick-Eichner Company has arranged $50 million of interim first mortgage financing to refinance Hotel Theodore, a 20-story, 153-room, full-service, luxury boutique hotel located at the corner of 7th Avenue and Pine Street, in the heart of downtown Seattle, Washington, one block west of the Washington State Convention Center.

The floating-rate loan was sized to a debt yield of less than 6% and priced over LIBOR at a spread in the mid-300s. Loan proceeds are being used to refinance the existing acquisition and renovation loan as well as provide a return of equity to the borrower, Portland, OR-based Provenance Hotels.

In November of 2017, Provenance completed an extensive $32 million renovation that included updating the guestrooms, bathrooms, meeting rooms, public spaces, and a build-out of the ground floor restaurant space. Amenities include Rider, an upscale restaurant and bar, a coffee shop, approximately 4,172 square feet of state-of-the-art meeting space and a fitness center.

"Given the excellent sponsorship and location, and that Seattle is one of the fastest growing and most dynamic gateway cities in the U.S., we had 14 competitive loan quotes from institutional lenders," said Sonnenblick-Eichner Company Principal Elliot Eichner. "The loan refinances an existing financing that was also arranged by Sonnenblick-Eichner Company," added Sonnenblick-Eichner Principal Patrick Brown.

Architecture & Design: Biophilic Design

The hospitality industry is constantly evolving to meet and exceed guest expectations. As a result, hotels are always on the lookout for new ways to improve the guest experience, and architecture and design is an essential part of this equation. Bold design is often the most effective way to make an exceptional first impression - an impression guests use to distinguish between brands. One design trend that is being embraced worldwide has become known as “Biophilic Design.” Biophilic design is based on the concept of biophilia, which is the theory that human beings have an innate tendency to seek out nature, natural elements, and natural forms. Biophilic design is more than hotels simply adding a surplus of plants; it involves incorporating specific design elements into a hotel in order to imbue it with a sense of wellness and well-being. Some of those elements include exposure to natural lighting; views of nature and rooms with a view; natural architectural patterns; salvaged or reclaimed woods of all types; reclaimed metals; sustainably sourced stone; living green walls and vertical gardens; and direct and indirect exposure to nature. Hotels that have incorporated biophilic design into their properties are reaping the benefits associated with this trend including reduced stress responses, better air quality, lower energy costs, and more positive guest reviews. Biophilic design has also been shown to improve guest moods and to satisfy consumer demand for environmental responsibility. Savvy hotel owners and managers are aware that nature-inspired elements enhance their guests' comfort and well-being, which is why this trend is becoming so prevalent. Biophilic design is just one topic in the fields of hotel architecture and design that will be examined in the November issue of the Hotel Business Review.
