RobertDouglas Advises Clarion Partners on the $684-Million Refinancing of CBM Two Hotels LP Portfolio

USA, New York, New York. January 22, 2020

RobertDouglas announced today that it advised Clarion Partners, LLC in securing a $684-million, non-recourse senior mortgage, five-year, fixed-rate financing for the refinancing of CBM Two Hotels LP Portfolio, a portfolio consisting of 52 Courtyard by Marriott hotels.

"The Portfolio's excellent Sponsorship, leading brand affiliation, highly attractive in-place cash flow and underwriting economics, and the Sponsor's commitment to a multi-year capital upgrade program in excess of $200 million allowed us to create a highly competitive process. The market responded with an array of strong proposals incorporating both fixed and floating rate financing structures," said Robert Stiles, Principal and Managing Director at RobertDouglas.

The 7,677-key Portfolio is comprised of fee and leasehold interests throughout 25 states and 37 metropolitan areas. Since acquisition in 2005, the Sponsor has spent over $300 million in capital improvements to the Portfolio and recently began a $220-million, Portfolio-wide renovation that will be completed over the next four years.

"The significant investment since acquisition is a testament to the Sponsor's commitment to the Portfolio," commented Lindsey Whang, Director with RobertDouglas. Whang added, "The continuous capital improvements over the past decade have allowed the Portfolio to maintain over 110% RevPAR penetration index over the past twelve years. The current renovation, which includes a modern exterior redesign and updated guestroom product, will further enhance the Portfolio and improve upon its impressive performance."

Sales & Marketing: Technology Rules

It is impossible for any hotel to develop an effective sales and marketing plan that doesn't include a wide-ranging digital strategy. Online platforms have impacted virtually every aspect of their business, due to major changes in how Internet users research, plan, and book their hotel visits. As a result, a successful plan includes generating traffic through the use of a hotel website, social media, email and a myriad of other digital marketing technologies. One such strategy uses data collection and automation technology to create personalized content to individual customers. The goal of personalization marketing is to engage potential customers by communicating with them as individuals - to establish a more personal relationship - as a way of encouraging them to visit a property. Video marketing is also extremely important. Showing someone authentic video from a specific location is immersive and engaging, and video is still the preferred way for customers to interact with a hotel brand. Voice and Visual Search are increasingly in demand, as consumers are moving away from typing queries into a search engine. Instead, they can simply speak their request into their phone, and find and book a hotel without ever typing a word. Similarly, other platforms allow consumers to search visually for almost any image, and find out pricing information, shopping comparisons and how-to-buy - all from the app. The adoption of Artificial Intelligence is also becoming popular. The ability of chatbots to answer simple questions or fulfill requests 24/7 is undeniably appealing. In addition, A.I. seems best positioned to qualify leads that can be later nurtured and closed by a human sales expert - all at a fraction of the cost of a traditional support team. The June Hotel Business Review will examine how some sales and marketing professionals are integrating these innovative technologies into their operations.
