SCOTTSDALE, AZ-The Scottsdale Marriott at McDowell Mountains stands as the collateral for a $33.5-million fixed-rate, first mortgage to replaced outstanding debt against the 270-key all-suite hotel at 16770 N. Perimeter Dr.

Mark Gordon, Sonnenblick-Goldman managing director and principal, tells GlobeSt.com that more than 20 lenders competed for the loan, which was arranged by New York City-based Sonnenblick-Goldman Co. on behalf of Walton Street Capital. The lender was an undisclosed domestic investment bank.

“The hotel industry is very much in vogue currently and as a result of the relatively few loan defaults that have occurred in the last 24 months, the lending community has rethought its position,” Gordon says of the intense lender competition. “It’s really a great time to be a hotel borrower.”

Gordon says the high level of lender interest was a result of the borrower’s strong reputation, the hotel’s solid performance record and the continued growth of the hospitality industry in the Phoenix area. That combination, he says, created fierce competition which enabled his firm to structure an extremely attractive loan package.Walton Street Capital will use the money to pay down existing debt from its initial loan for the four-year-old hotel, he says.

Located on more than 10 acres and surrounded by the Tournament Players Club Desert Golf Course, the Scottsdale Marriott at McDowell Mountains is the leading all-suite hotel in the Phoenix market. With spectacular views of Camelback Mountain, Squaw Peak and the McDowell Mountains, the hotel features more than 10,000 sf of interior function space, 6,500 sf of exterior function space, two food and beverage outlets, business services, swimming pool, gift shop and preferred access to the adjacent TPC golf course, the home of the Phoenix Open.
