Sonnenblick-Eichner Co. Arranges $50 Million Loan to Finance Acquisition and Renovation of Inn at Rancho Santa Fe in San Diego, CA

USA, Beverly Hills, California. July 12, 2022

Sonnenblick-Eichner Company on behalf of Steve Herman Hotels, has arranged $50 million in first mortgage debt for the acquisition of Inn at Rancho Santa Fe, an 82-room, full-service, luxury boutique resort located in north San Diego County's exclusive enclave of Rancho Santa Fe, CA

A portion of the loan proceeds will be used by the sponsor to fund an extensive $15 million "top-to-bottom" renovation that will reposition the resort as one of the most prominent and exclusive destinations in California. The non-recourse floating rate loan, which provided for 85% of total costs including the renovation of the property, was priced in the mid 7% range

"We were successful in sourcing multiple deal structures for 85% of total costs from a number of different capital providers, including debt and hedge funds as well as family offices," said Elliot Eichner, a Principal and Co-Founder of Sonnenblick-Eichner Company. "The loan was ultimately placed with an alternative investment fund that provided the entire capital stack and will hold the loan on-book to maturity."

"A contributing factor that facilitated the transaction was the sponsor's experience in renovating and repositioning similar resort properties," added Patrick Brown, also a Principal of Sonnenblick-Eichner Company.

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, 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.
