USA, Denver, Colorado. April 29, 2019

RobertDouglas announced today that it advised The Chartres Lodging Group in securing acquisition and redevelopment financing for its purchase of Dr. Wilkinson's Hot Springs Resort in Downtown Calistoga, California. Chartres Lodging is a San Francisco-based hotel investment company with a deep expertise in executing value-add hotel transformations. The floating-rate financing was provided by a leading alternative credit manager focused on high-quality, floating-rate debt.

The well-known 42-room Dr. Wilkinson's Resort has been part of the fabric of the local community for several decades. The signature property features a renowned on-site spa featuring mud baths, mineral water baths, steam rooms, and massage treatment rooms, as well as multiple outdoor and indoor pools. The Property is located in the heart of Downtown Calistoga, in close proximity to all major local demand drivers as well as the new Four Seasons Napa Valley.

"The loan was structured to facilitate the acquisition and renovation of this landmark property along the main thoroughfare through the center of Calistoga," noted Rob Stiles, a Principal and Managing Director of RobertDouglas.

"The strength of the Calistoga hotel market helped us source a lender who delivered strong pricing and flexibility with regards to the redevelopment financing," remarked Julie Surago, an Associate of RobertDouglas.

Hotel Law: A Labor Crisis and Cyber Security

According to a recent study, the hospitality industry accounted for 2.9 trillion dollars in sales and in the U.S. alone, was responsible for 1 in 9 jobs. In an industry of that scope and dimension, legal issues touch every aspect of a hotel's operation, and legal services are required in order to conform to all prevailing laws and regulations. Though not all hotels face the same issues, there are some industry-wide subjects that are of concern more broadly. One of those matters is the issue of immigration and how it affects the ability of hotels to recruit qualified employees. The hotel industry is currently facing a labor crisis; the U.S. Labor Department estimates that there are 600,000 unfilled jobs in the industry. Part of the problem contributing to this labor shortage is the lack of H2B visas for low-skilled workers, combined with the difficulty in obtaining J-1 visas for temporary workers. Because comprehensive immigration reform is not being addressed politically, hotel managers expect things are going to get worse before they get better. Corporate cyber security is another major legal issue the industry must address. Hotels are under enormous pressure in this area given the large volume of customer financial transactions they handle daily. Recently, a federal court ruled that the Federal Trade Commission had the power to regulate corporate cyber security, so it is incumbent on hotels to establish data security programs in order to prevent data breaches. The lack of such programs could cause hotels to face legal threats from government agencies, class action lawsuits, and damage to their brand image if a data breach should occur. These are just two of the critical issues that the December issue of Hotel Business Review will examine in the area of hotel law.
