HFF Announces $38.7m Financing for Chicago Marriott Schaumburg

USA, Chicago, Illinois. February 28, 2018

Holliday Fenoglio Fowler, L.P. (HFF) announces $38.7 million in financing for the acquisition and renovation of Chicago Marriott Schaumburg, a 398-room, full-service hotel in the Chicago suburb of Schaumburg.

The HFF team worked on behalf of the borrower, an affiliate of Chicago-based Arbor Lodging Partners, to place the three-year, floating-rate loan with a one-year extension with Ladder Capital.  Arbor Lodging Partners will be completing significant upgrades to the property, including a full renovation of the lobby, meeting space, common areas and guest rooms, along with the addition of the new Marriott M Club lounge.  The property is managed by Arbor Lodging Management.

Located at 50 North Martingale Road, the 13-story Chicago Marriott Schaumburg comprises 183 double and 211 king guestrooms and four Presidential Suites.  The property is situated within the Woodfield Corporate Center complex, which contains more than three million square feet of Class A office space, and is located one mile from the Woodfield Mall, the largest shopping center in Illinois and one of the 10 largest shopping malls in the U.S. with more than 2.2 million square feet of restaurant and retail space.  Completed in 1983 and renovated in 2007, the hotel features a fitness center, full-service business center, indoor and outdoor pools, two restaurant venues and 21 meeting and event rooms totaling to 18,536 square feet of space.

The HFF debt placement team representing the borrower consisted of senior director Jeff Bucaro and associate Nicole Aguiar, along with managing director Tony Malk and directors Matt Enright and Bryan Rosenberg.

“The potential and upside of the Chicago Marriott Schaumburg was evident, and we couldn't be more pleased to make it Arbor's first property in the Chicagoland area,” said Vamsi Bonthala, CEO of Arbor Lodging Partners.  “We worked closely with the HFF team and thank them for their hard work that has initiated a new chapter for the hotel.”

“We are excited to be part of the project and we share Arbor's vision in creating a premier full-service hotel asset in the Schaumburg market,” Bucaro added.  “Arbor has a solid track record of renovating, repositioning and managing hotel assets, and we believe this property will be very successful.”

Hotel Spa: Oasis Unplugged

The driving force in current hotel spa trends is the effort to manage unprecedented levels of stress experienced by their clients. Feeling increasingly overwhelmed by demanding careers and technology overload, people are craving places where they can go to momentarily escape the rigors of their daily lives. As a result, spas are positioning themselves as oases of unplugged human connection, where mindfulness and contemplation activities are becoming increasingly important. One leading hotel spa offers their clients the option to experience their treatments in total silence - no music, no talking, and no advice from the therapist - just pure unadulterated silence. Another leading hotel spa is working with a reputable medical clinic to develop a “digital detox” initiative, in which clients will be encouraged to unplug from their devices and engage in mindfulness activities to alleviate the stresses of excessive technology use. Similarly, other spas are counseling clients to resist allowing technology to monopolize their lives, and to engage in meditation and gratitude exercises in its place. The goal is to provide clients with a warm, inviting and tranquil sanctuary from the outside world, in addition to also providing genuine solutions for better sleep, proper nutrition, stress management and natural self-care. To accomplish this, some spas are incorporating a variety of new approaches - cryotherapy, Himalayan salt therapy and ayurveda treatments are becoming increasingly popular. Other spas are growing their own herbs and performing their treatments in lush outdoor gardens. Some spa therapists are being trained to assess a client's individual movement patterns to determine the most beneficial treatment specifically for them. The July issue of the Hotel Business Review will report on these trends and developments and examine how some hotel spas are integrating them into their operations.
