Thorofare Capital Funds $16 Million Loan to Refinance Sheraton Silver Spring Hotel

USA, Los Angeles, California. August 29, 2018

Thorofare Capital (Thorofare), through its bridge lending platform, has provided an affiliate of Integrated Capital LLC with a $16 million short-term senior loan for the refinance of the Sheraton Silver Spring Hotel in the Washington D.C. metro area submarket of Silver Spring, MD.

Located at 8777 Georgia Avenue, the 229-room, 16-floor full-service hotel was built in 1971 and renovated in 2017. It is managed by Atlanta-based Davidson Hotels & Resorts, one of the largest privately held management companies in the lodging industry.

Proceeds from Thorofare's 12-month, interest only, non-recourse financing refinanced a bank loan, added capital for ongoing building upgrades and repatriated a portion of the partnership's equity. Thorofare was able to close less than 10 days from application.

"This well-located Marriott-licensed hotel was an attractive financing opportunity for us to close quickly due to the loan basis, the institutional-quality ownership and the strong cash flow metrics," said Brendan Miller, Thorofare's Principal and Chief Investment Officer.

Felix Gutnikov, the firm's Principal and Head of Origination, added, "Thorofare looks forward to expanding its relationship with Integrated Capital, a well-regarded Los Angeles-based firm that has a nationally diversified portfolio."

Situated within walking distance of Silver Spring's best shops, restaurants and office complexes, the Sheraton Silver Spring Hotel is also located within a few blocks of the Silver Spring Metro station, providing hotel guests easy access to the downtown Washington D.C. area and all its historic sites and attractions.

"We are pleased to close this financing with Thorofare Capital," said Kenneth Fearn, Managing Partner of Integrated Capital. "They performed as promised within a tight closing window, which was important for this investment. We look forward to exploring additional financing opportunities with Thorofare going forward."

Hotel Law: Protecting Guest Privacy

Every business is obligated to protect their customers from identity theft but unfortunately, data breaches have become all too common. In an effort to protect a guest's right to privacy and to safeguard their personal data, the European Union passed a General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) that could hold hotels legally liable for any breaches that expose a customer's sensitive personal information. Though the GDPR only pertains to EU citizens' data, any international business that mishandles their data can be legally responsible. Another legal issue of concern is the fight involving hotel "resort fees." Several states attorney generals have recently filed suit against two major hotel chains in an effort to litigate this practice. Their suit alleges that these companies are "engaged in deceptive and misleading pricing practices and their failure to disclose fees is in violation of consumer protection laws." The suit seeks to force the hotel chains to advertise the true price of their hotel rooms. There are several other legal issues that the industry is being forced to address. Sexual harassment prevention in the workplace is still top of mind for hotel employers-particularly in New York and California, which now statutorily require harassment training. Hotels and motels in California will also soon be required to train all their employees on human trafficking awareness. Immigration issues are also of major concern to hotel employers, especially in the midst of a severe labor shortage. The government is issuing fewer H2B visas for low-skilled workers, as well as J-1 visas for temporary workers. Though there is little hope for any comprehensive immigration reform, hotel lobbying groups are actively seeking legal remedies to alleviate this problem. These are just a few of the critical issues that the December issue of the Hotel Business Review will examine in the area of hotel law.
