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."

Hotel Group Meetings: Demand vs. Supply

It is a great time for hotel group meetings. It is expected that once again this sector will grow by 5-10% in 2020, partly due to the increasing value of in-person group meetings. Because people now spend so much time in front of their screens, face-to-face interactions have become a more treasured commodity in our modern world. Plus, the use of social media reinforces the value of engagement, discussion, conversation, and networking - all areas where group meetings shine. Despite this rosy outlook, there is a concern that demand for meetings far exceeds the supply of suitable venues and hotels. There are very few "big box" properties with 500-plus rooms and extensive conference facilities being built, and this shortage of inventory could pose a serious challenge for meeting planners. In addition to location concerns, the role of the meeting planner has also evolved significantly. Planners are no longer just meeting coordinators - they are de facto travel agents. Cultural interactions, local dining, experiential travel, and team-building activities are all now a part of their meeting mix. Plus, they have to cater to evolving tastes. Millennials are insisting on healthier venues and activities, and to meet their demands, hotels are making yoga breaks, fresh-pressed juices, plant-based diets, state-of-the-art gyms, and locally-sourced menus available. Millennials are also insisting that meeting venues practice Corporate Social Responsibility, which means upholding sustainable and ethical values; investment in the local community; health and well-being of employees; and general business practices that reflect being good citizens of the planet. Finally, there is a growing trend to merge meetings with other local events, such as music festivals, sporting events, and cultural attractions. The December Hotel Business Review will report on issues relevant to group meetings and will document what some hotels are doing to support this part of their operations.
