You can trust Stonehill to close your deals. We were ready to close within 2 weeks on our first hotel acquisition when our initial lender pulled out unexpectedly. Throughout the process the initial lender kept raising the requirements such as increasing the interest rate and lowering the LTV due to the size of the PIP. We reached out to Stonehill and they worked diligently to structure a capital solution that worked for us, and we were able to acquire the hotel 3 weeks later. The entire team demonstrated a high level of integrity and they were a pleasure to work with during this stressful situation. We would absolutely use Stonehill again.
We at Impact Properties have had the pleasure of working with the team at Stonehill for many years. During that time, they have provided over $50 million in debt financing for our portfolio. Their industry knowledge and years of experience enable them to find creative financing solutions for any situation. In addition to their industry expertise, their relationship and customer focus is one of their strongest traits. Throughout the process from origination to closing they have been strong partners, and find innovative solutions to structure around significant issues. This creative thinking and certainty of execution has benefited their borrowers, and made us confident that once we begin a transaction with Stonehill it will come to a successful closing. Above all, we respect the Stonehill team as trustworthy partners focused on their clients and their needs.
What makes Stonehill unique is their hospitality knowledge and the efficiency they bring into each transaction. They have a unique ability to understand a project and quickly take action which is unparalleled in my experience.
Stonehill has been my primary investment vehicle for the past 5 years. The management team has always been engaging, responsive, trusting and investor focused. I look forward to executing more deals in the future.
We have used Stonehill on several of our transactions. They are timely and knowledgeable and understand that time is of the essence in executing commercial transactions.
I’ve enjoyed closing many transactions with Stonehill over the last five years. Stonehill has an extremely experienced team of professionals with over 100 years of experience in the “niche” hospitality lending industry and it shows during the entire process. Their ability to structure highly complicated transactions are second to none. What truly sets them apart from competitors is their professionalism, attention to detail and ability to make adjustments when curve balls are thrown their way. I would highly recommend Stonehill to anyone who is considering them for their hospitality related financing needs and looking forward to closing more deals in the future.
The team at Stonehill was tremendous in assisting me with acquiring an asset that required an out of the box capital solution. They are my first stop in the process of executing new projects. Stonehill is arguable the most sophisticated and experience hotel lending team in the country.
We want to thank everyone at Stonehill for being such a great capital partner to our Houston-based company, American Liberty Hospitality. Stonehill’s depth of experience in the hotel industry sets you apart from many competitors in your field. In our 44 years of developing, owning and managing hotels, you are the most knowledgeable capital group that we have every had the pleasure of working with.
I met Stonehill two years ago through our CFO when Innisfree Hotels was the victim of a broken deal with another capital company two weeks before closing. We had deadlines for opening our $45mm beachfront hotel for the season. Stonehill came through with just a few weeks of intense DD and we met our deadlines for opening. The professionals at Stonehill understand the macro and micro levels of complex projects and deliver what they say. Now two years later and after another $84mm in additional projects, we have grown Innisfree Hotels through some top tier products in high barrier to entry markets thanks to Stonehill.
It has been my privilege to work with Stonehill since their inception and with the principals for several years prior. I have always found them to be professional, reliable and a completely honest and “go to” group for our capital needs. Their innovative and can-do approach to lending solutions has made them an invaluable partner in our development program.
We have had a very positive experience working with Stonehill on the acquisition of our Doubletree Hotel downtown Atlanta. Stonehill provided preferred equity and worked closing with us to provide Seller with the surety of closing that they needed to go under contract with us. Since closing, we have found Stonehill to be professional and collaborative in our interactions as we have worked through our significant renovation and repositioning of the asset.
