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 Law: Legal Consequences

The pandemic provoked more than a global health crisis. It also disrupted world economies, financial markets and social systems on a massive scale. Naturally, there are legal consequences associated with this kind of severe business disruption and the issues will be litigated for years to come. In the hotel industry, there are several issues that are currently germane. One issue pertains to the legal obligations hotels have to re-hire employees who were laid off due to the pandemic. Lawsuits have been filed by former employees who claim that certain promises were made to them when they were furloughed, and they are suing hotels for breach of implied contract. Another major issue involves hotels suing their insurance companies for failing to cover their business losses due to the pandemic. Still other hotels have brought lawsuits against local governments for the strict restrictions that were placed on their businesses, chiefly restaurants and bars. These are just a few of the legal issues that will be addressed in the December issue of the Hotel Business Review.
