Aries Capital Arranges $8.9 Million CMBS Loan for Texas Holiday Inn ExpressDecember 8, 2014
Aries Capital has closed an $8.9 million loan for the Holiday Inn Express of Baytown, Texas on behalf of Pride Management.
The property, operational since April 2014, is located at 7515 Garth Road across the bay from Houston and along the Gulf Coast.
Having completed a successful loan for a hotel development in Victoria, Texas earlier this year, Pride Management again sought Aries Capital’s assistance to secure a loan for its Baytown property. Aries Capital was able to secure a new CMBS loan for the Borrower to replace the property’s existing full recourse, bank construction loan. The permanent, non-recourse, 10-year loan was arranged through the same CMBS lender Aries utilized for the Borrower’s previous loan.
Because the hotel was newly constructed, it only had four-months of operating history, typically insufficient when trying to secure a CMBS loan. Despite the changing market, Aries was able to negotiate with the lender to maintain the original terms by demonstrating the strength of our deal through qualified market research.
“The way Aries Capital negotiates, adheres to its commitments and defends a client’s position is remarkable. I have had nothing but positive interactions and successful results from the Aries team. They can expect a good deal of work from us in the future,” commented Pride Management’s Executive Vice President Nilesh Patel, CHO.
Pride Management continues to demonstrate success at the property as projected, drawing traffic from the port industry, the coastal region and nearby corporate campuses. Pride Management is private company based in Beaumont, Texas. The firm has a long history of development, ownership and management in the hotel industry and has developed 30 hotels throughout Texas and Louisiana with plans to develop an additional 20 hotels throughout the region.
