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."

Hotel Group Meetings: The Great Outdoors


There is some welcome good news in the Hotel Group Meetings sector. There seems to be a resurgence in activity - across all sectors and all sizes - from small board meetings to large in-person groups. However, hotels must remain flexible and proactive, as they seek to provide venues and programs that are productive, comfortable, and safe to all parties. One major development is the expansion of outdoor meeting activities. This trend not only serves to meet regulatory health standards, but it also promotes an environment of well-being. According to a recent study from WorldHealth.net, spending just 29 minutes outdoors can result in a 45% increase in productivity; and 63% of employees reportedly felt invigorated after being in fresh air. Combined with guided physical activities and healthy food and beverage offerings, a sense of wellness and productivity are established. The September Hotel Business Review will report on what some hotels are doing to accommodate the revitalization of group meeting business in their operations.
