The US-based publicly traded hotel trust refinanced a $140m loan, which carries a three-year initial term and two one-year extension options, subject to some conditions.
It executed interest rate swaps to set a fixed interest rate of 7% for the entire loan duration.
The payoff amount for the remaining $21.5m from the earlier $161.5m CMBS loan secured by the Margaritaville Hollywood Beach Resort was funded from cash on hand by Pebblebrook Hotel Trust.
Pebblebrook Hotel Trust co-president and chief financial officer Raymond D. Martz said: “We are extremely pleased with the favourable terms of this loan in a challenging financing market.
“This refinancing extends our debt maturities and preserves additional liquidity for debt paydowns and other strategic opportunities.”
