On behalf of Blackstone Real Estate Advisors, L.P. Jones Lang LaSalle (JLL) today announced the firm has secured $186 million in acquisition financing for a 15-property select-service hotel portfolio. Deutsche Bank provided the five year, floating-rate loan.
Executive Managing Director Peter Nicoletti, and Managing Director Mathew Comfort along with Executive Vice Presidents Dustin Stolly and Bill Grice led the JLL team on this transaction.

“The floating rate debt markets continue to evolve in the favor of top tier sponsors. The transaction appealed to a wide variety of capital sources that were willing to provide Blackstone with the flexibility and structure necessary to implement their business plan for each of the assets,” said Nicoletti

Added Comfort, “The portfolio benefits from superior sponsorship that provided a significant equity investment of nearly $50 million as well as their global brand recognition. In addition to the strong in-place cash flow, there is limited new supply in each market, which will bolster the portfolio’s performance going forward.”

The portfolio features 1,642 keys that are located in Pennsylvania, New York, North Carolina, New Jersey, Rhode Island, Connecticut and Delaware.
The hotels featured strong brand affiliations, superior management and amenities across the assets that included onsite fitness centers, meeting space facilities, swimming pools, and business centers.
