Sonnenblick-Eichner Company Arranges $41,000,000 of First Mortgage Financing for Hotel Eastlund, Portland, Oregon

BEVERLY HILLS, CA. March 9, 2017 – Sonnenblick-Eichner Company has arranged $41,000,000 of first mortgage financing for Hotel Eastlund located in Portland, Oregon.

The financing was a non-recourse, 10-year fixed rate loan provided by an international money center bank.

Elliot Eichner, Principal of Sonnenblick-Eichner Company commented, “The hotel recently completed an extensive renovation and rebranding and had limited operating history at the time of the closing of the new loan. By underwriting the most recent trailing 12-month cash flow, we were able to maximize loan proceeds. We were also successful in negotiating two years of interest-only payments.”

“This new loan takes out an acquisition and construction loan that we previously arranged for the ownership,” added Patrick Brown, also a principal of Sonnenblick-Eichner Company.

Located across the street from the Oregon Convention Center in the in the burgeoning Lloyd District of Portland, Oregon, Hotel Eastlund is a 6-story, 168-room boutique hotel whose amenities include approximately 4,800 square feet of meeting and banquet space, the Altabira City Tavern and Citizen Baker, a rooftop deck, and business and fitness centers. The Hotel also includes approximately 1,000 square feet of street level retail space and on-site parking for approximately 131 cars. Hotel Eastlund ranks in the top 10% of Hotels in Portland on TripAdvisor and was recognized as one of Travel & Leisure magazine’s 2016 “17 Coolest New Urban Hotels in the Country.”

Eco-Friendly Practices: The Greening of Your Bottom Line

There are strong moral and ethical reasons why a hotel should incorporate eco-friendly practices into their business but it is also becoming abundantly clear that “going green” can dramatically improve a hotel's bottom line. When energy-saving measures are introduced - fluorescent bulbs, ceiling fans, linen cards, lights out cards, motion sensors for all public spaces, and energy management systems - energy bills are substantially reduced. When water-saving equipment is introduced - low-flow showerheads, low-flow toilets, waterless urinals, and serving water only on request in restaurants - water bills are also considerably reduced. Waste hauling is another major expense which can be lowered through recycling efforts and by avoiding wastefully-packaged products. Vendors can be asked to deliver products in minimal wrapping, and to deliver products one day, and pick up the packaging materials the next day - generating substantial savings. In addition, renewable sources of energy (solar, geothermal, wind, etc.) have substantially improved the economics of using alternative energies at the property level. There are other compelling reasons to initiate sustainability practices in their operation. Being green means guests and staff are healthier, which can lead to an increase in staff retention, as well as increased business from health conscious guests. Also, sooner or later, all properties will be sold, and green hotels will command a higher price due to its energy efficiencies. Finally, some hotels qualify for tax credits, subsidies and rebates from local, regional and federal governments for the eco-friendly investments they've made in their hotels. The May issue of the Hotel Business Review will document how some hotels are integrating sustainable practices into their operations and how their hotels are benefiting from them.
