Thorofare Capital Funds $16 Million Loan to Refinance Sheraton Silver Spring Hotel

USA, Los Angeles, California. August 29, 2018

Thorofare Capital (Thorofare), through its bridge lending platform, has provided an affiliate of Integrated Capital LLC with a $16 million short-term senior loan for the refinance of the Sheraton Silver Spring Hotel in the Washington D.C. metro area submarket of Silver Spring, MD.

Located at 8777 Georgia Avenue, the 229-room, 16-floor full-service hotel was built in 1971 and renovated in 2017. It is managed by Atlanta-based Davidson Hotels & Resorts, one of the largest privately held management companies in the lodging industry.

Proceeds from Thorofare's 12-month, interest only, non-recourse financing refinanced a bank loan, added capital for ongoing building upgrades and repatriated a portion of the partnership's equity. Thorofare was able to close less than 10 days from application.

"This well-located Marriott-licensed hotel was an attractive financing opportunity for us to close quickly due to the loan basis, the institutional-quality ownership and the strong cash flow metrics," said Brendan Miller, Thorofare's Principal and Chief Investment Officer.

Felix Gutnikov, the firm's Principal and Head of Origination, added, "Thorofare looks forward to expanding its relationship with Integrated Capital, a well-regarded Los Angeles-based firm that has a nationally diversified portfolio."

Situated within walking distance of Silver Spring's best shops, restaurants and office complexes, the Sheraton Silver Spring Hotel is also located within a few blocks of the Silver Spring Metro station, providing hotel guests easy access to the downtown Washington D.C. area and all its historic sites and attractions.

"We are pleased to close this financing with Thorofare Capital," said Kenneth Fearn, Managing Partner of Integrated Capital. "They performed as promised within a tight closing window, which was important for this investment. We look forward to exploring additional financing opportunities with Thorofare going forward."

Sales & Marketing: Technology Rules

It is impossible for any hotel to develop an effective sales and marketing plan that doesn't include a wide-ranging digital strategy. Online platforms have impacted virtually every aspect of their business, due to major changes in how Internet users research, plan, and book their hotel visits. As a result, a successful plan includes generating traffic through the use of a hotel website, social media, email and a myriad of other digital marketing technologies. One such strategy uses data collection and automation technology to create personalized content to individual customers. The goal of personalization marketing is to engage potential customers by communicating with them as individuals - to establish a more personal relationship - as a way of encouraging them to visit a property. Video marketing is also extremely important. Showing someone authentic video from a specific location is immersive and engaging, and video is still the preferred way for customers to interact with a hotel brand. Voice and Visual Search are increasingly in demand, as consumers are moving away from typing queries into a search engine. Instead, they can simply speak their request into their phone, and find and book a hotel without ever typing a word. Similarly, other platforms allow consumers to search visually for almost any image, and find out pricing information, shopping comparisons and how-to-buy - all from the app. The adoption of Artificial Intelligence is also becoming popular. The ability of chatbots to answer simple questions or fulfill requests 24/7 is undeniably appealing. In addition, A.I. seems best positioned to qualify leads that can be later nurtured and closed by a human sales expert - all at a fraction of the cost of a traditional support team. The June Hotel Business Review will examine how some sales and marketing professionals are integrating these innovative technologies into their operations.
