Sonnenblick-Eichner Co. Arranges $50 Million Loan to Refinance Luxury Boutique Hotel in Pismo Beach, CA

USA, Beverly Hills, California. May 12, 2022

Sonnenblick-Eichner Company has arranged $50 million of long-term fixed-rate first mortgage financing for the Cliffs Hotel & Spa, a 162-room, full-service, luxury boutique hotel located on a bluff overlooking the Pacific Ocean in Pismo Beach, CA.

The non-recourse loan was funded by an investment bank and priced at 4.8 percent with interest-only payments for the entire term of the loan. Proceeds from the loan provided for a return of equity to the Borrower in order to purchase a partnership interest.

Located along California's central coast, the Cliffs Hotel & Spa features direct beach access, Marisol (a full-service restaurant and bar), a heated outdoor pool and Jacuzzi, Dia Feliz Spa, The Salt + Sundry retail outlet, fully equipped fitness and business centers and on/off-site valet parking for up to 209 cars. The hotel has approximately 27,000 square feet of indoor/outdoor meeting and event space, more than any other hotel in Pismo Beach.

Elliot Eichner, a Principal and Co-Founder of Sonnenblick-Eichner Company, commented, "Consistent with all of our recent financing transactions, this loan was competitively bid among 10 lenders resulting in a sub-200 bps. credit spread."

Patrick Brown, also a Principal of Sonnenblick-Eichner Company, added: "Due to the oceanfront location and "Drive-to-Leisure" orientation, the property has a long history of stable cash flow, which led to the loan executing at such favorable terms."

Sales & Marketing: Promoting Peace of Mind


As the hotel industry transitions to a more familiar position, it is still necessary for hotels to emphasize in their marketing the health protocols they have implemented to ensure guest safety and wellness. Above all, guests need to be reassured that every precaution is being taken to safeguard their well-being. Additionally, there are other marketing strategies that hotels can implement as a way to boost their business. For example, neighborhood marketing is a tactic that relies heavily on appealing to local audiences. Incentives targeting locals can fulfill the craving that some people have for time away from home, but aren't ready to hop on a plane. Another viable strategy is to promote experiences in nature. After being stuck inside for so long, many people are looking for hotels to help them re-connect with the great outdoors. The June Hotel Business Review will focus on the marketing strategies that some hotels are adopting and how they are benefiting from them.
