USA, New York, New York. 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.

Food & Beverage: Millennial Chefs Lead the Way

Led by Millennial chefs, hotels continue to foster sustainability, sourcing and wellness within their dining rooms and banquet spaces, and by all measures, this is responsible for an increase in their revenues. In many hotels, the food & beverage division contributes 50 per cent or more to hotel sales and they are currently experiencing double-digit growth. As a result, hotel owners are allocating an increasing amount of square footage for F&B operations. The biggest area of investment is in catering, which is thriving due to weddings, social events and business conferences. Hotels are also investing in on-site market or convenience stores that offer fresh/refrigerated foods, and buffet concepts also continue to expand. Other popular food trends include a rise of fermented offerings such as kombucha, kimchi, sauerkraut, tempeh, kefir and pickles - all to produce the least processed food possible, and to boost probiotics to improve the immune system. Tea is also enjoying something of a renaissance. More people are thinking of tea with the same reverence as coffee due to its many varieties, applications and benefits. Craft tea blending, nitro tea on tap and even tea cocktails are beginning to appear on some hotel menus. Another trend concerns creating a unique, individualized and memorable experience for guests. This could be a small consumable item that is specific to a property or event, such as house-made snack mixes, gourmet popcorn, macaroons, or jars of house-made jams, chutneys, and mustards -all produced and customized in house. One staple that is in decline is the in-room minibar which seems to have fallen out of favor. The August issue of the Hotel Business Review will document the trends and challenges in the food and beverage sector, and report on what some leading hotels are doing to enhance this area of their business.
