RobertDouglas Advises WBX Capital Partners and Trinity Private Equity Group on Successful Refinancing of Marriott Kansas City Overland Park

USA, New York City, New York. September 28, 2022

RobertDouglas announced today that it advised a joint venture of WBX Capital Partners and Trinity Private Equity Group in the refinancing of its existing loan for the 398-key, Marriott Kansas City Overland Park in the Greater Kansas City MSA. The new, non-recourse, floating rate senior mortgage has a five-year term, secured through a best-in-class institutional balance sheet lender.

WBX Capital Partners and Trinity Private Equity Group acquired the property in August 2019 and subsequently completed a comprehensive nearly $17 million renovation. The modern and inviting new design features major updates to all guestrooms; public spaces, including the lobby; the M Club Lounge and meeting spaces, as well as a vibrant new restaurant and bar, Zephyr Kitchen & Bar.

The Marriott Kansas City Overland Park is located in one of the leading business districts in the Midwest, home to more than 40 corporate headquarters and featuring 20 million square feet of Class-A office space.

Annie Ferguson, RobertDouglas Vice President, noted, "progressing from the pandemic, hospitality investors continue to show strong interest in secondary and tertiary MSAs like Greater Kansas City that feature an excellent quality of life, a reasonable cost of living, and a favorable environment for both new business formation and growth of existing businesses. As a result, this refinancing opportunity attracted strong interest from institutional lenders at highly competitive terms and pricing."

"Overall, hospitality industry fundamentals remain strong," added Evan Hurd, Principal and Managing Director. "This is making it attractive for many ownership groups to refinance quality properties in excellent locations, as they make significant capital improvements designed to enhance guest appeal and support revenue growth, as well as in labor-augmenting technologies."

Guest Service: Exceeding Expectations

When guests check into a hotel, they have expectations of quality customer service. They expect to have their needs met in a professional manner, they desire a certain level of comfort, and possibly even made to feel a little special. This is important because satisfied guests are more likely to return and to become true brand ambassadors. But what if instead of merely meeting expectations, hotels created a culture of service that was intent on exceeding expectations in every conceivable way? What if frontline staff were trained and empowered to provide guest services that demonstrate a willingness to always go the extra mile in order to please their guests? This culture is exactly what some hotels are creating in their operations. From helpful, smiling, welcoming staff to the quality of  a room's comfort and conveniences. From discovering a guest's special needs and enthusiastically fulfilling them, to making some amenities free of charge and offering random upgrades. The April issue of the Hotel Business Review will explore what some hotels are doing to enhance and enrich their guest services.
