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."

Revenue Management: Focus On Profit

Revenue Management is still a relatively new profession within hotel operations and as such, it continues to evolve. One significant trend in this area is a shift away from using revenue as the foundation to generate key performance indicators (KPIs) and to instead place the emphasis on profit. Traditionally, revenue managers have relied on total revenue per available room (TrevPAR) and revenue per available room (RevPAR) as the basis of their KPIs. Now, some revenue managers are using gross operating profit per available room (GOPPAR) as their primary KPI. This puts profit at the center of revenue management strategy, and managers are increasingly searching for new ways to increase the profitability of their hotels. Return on Investment is the objective of any hotel investment, so it is only logical that profitability and ROI will be emphasized going forward. Another trend is an expanded focus on direct hotel bookings. Revenue managers know that one way to increase profitability is to steer guests away from online travel agencies (OTAs) and book directly with the hotel. This tactic also reinforces brand identity and loyalty, and encourages repeat business. In addition, it provides a valuable platform to market the hotel directly to the customer, and to upsell room upgrades or other services to them. Another trend for revenue managers involves automation in their software programs. Revenue management systems with automation are far more desirable than those without it. Automating data entry and logistics increases efficiency, allowing managers to spend more time on formulating strategy. As a bonus, an automated system helps with aggregating and interpreting data. The October issue of the Hotel Business Review will address these developments and document how some leading hotels are executing their revenue management strategies.
