Sycamore Investment Group capitalizes on hotel’s success, inks refinancing at favorable terms
GREENVILLE, S.C. (Aug. 21, 2018) — Mission Capital Advisors announced that its Debt and Equity Finance Team has arranged $19 million of permanent, non-recourse financing for the Home2 Suites by Hilton Greenville Downtown, a 117-key, extended-stay hotel located at 350 North Main Street in downtown Greenville, South Carolina. The Mission Capital team of Beau Williams, Steven Buchwald, and Justin Hunt represented Sycamore Investment Group in arranging the non-recourse loan.
The 110,491-square-foot property is a premier, extended-stay hotel, with well-appointed studio and one-bedroom suites that include full kitchens and in-suite work stations. The property offers guests a wide range of amenities, including the Spin2Cycle fitness center; an outdoor pool; outdoor patios with grills and fire pits; and valet parking. Since opening in September 2016, the hotel has been one of the top-performing extended-stay/limited-service hotels in Greenville. Building on the hotel’s immediate success, ownership sought to retire the property’s construction loan and procure permanent financing.
“Although Home2Suites has ramped up its operations quickly, a lot of supply has come to the local market, so we had to demonstrate to lenders that the hotel would maintain its strong performance,” said Williams. “As an extended-stay hotel, the property differentiates itself from much of the competition, and the diversified clientele it attracts points to its continued success. We were able to leverage our lender relationships to create a competitive market for this deal resulting in very favorable terms to our client.”
The hotel is situated in a prime location in downtown Greenville near countless restaurants and retail options. It is also within five minutes of the Bon Secours Wellness Arena — which hosts hockey games and performing artists — and the TD Convention Center, one of the largest exhibit halls in the country.
“After creating one of the Greenville market’s most inviting and successful hospitality properties, Sycamore was able to capitalize on its success,” said Buchwald. “This non-recourse CMBS loan retires the construction financing, which was structured with recourse, and returns capital to the sponsor. This allows them to continue executing their business strategy and pursue other development opportunities.”
