SANTA MONICA, CA— Vista Capital Co. arranged and closed $32 million of financing for a portfolio of five hotels.
Four of the hotels are located within one mile of each other, in Goodyear, AZ; the other is in Washington, UT. The 478-room portfolio consists of limited-service and full-service assets, branded by Hilton Hotels & Resorts, IHG and Marriott International.
The deal was funded by an undisclosed investment bank via its structured finance CMBS group. The new non-recourse financing will retire the former recourse loan while concurrently reducing debt-service payments, extending the amortization schedule and providing ownership with an equity recapitalization, according to Vista Capital. The fixed-rate financing also will be used to fund various renovation projects over its 10-year term.
Zak Selbert, founding principal at Vista Capital, indicated this is the firm's eighth hotel closing in six months.

The theme of this year’s ALIS conference was “Don’t Worry, Be Happy.” But, lets face it, there are always going to be some people who aren’t happy unless they are worried about something—whether it’s the Fed potentially raising interest rates or that the price of oil is now too low, threatening to cripple the economies of some foreign nations.
