Charleston Holiday Inn secures $19M loan from PMZ Realty Capital

The Holiday Inn Express Charleston Downtown – Ashley River

PMZ Realty Capital, a national boutique real estate investment banking firm, arranged a $19-million loan for the Holiday Inn Express Charleston Downtown – Ashley River in Charleston, S.C.

The 153-room property sits along the Ashley River in Downtown Charleston, S.C., adjacent to the Medical University of South Carolina and the WestEdge Charleston Development. Located minutes from Charleston’s Historic District, the property allows guests to benefit from its proximity to beaches, parks, restaurants, golf courses and Joe Riley Baseball Field, home of the Charleston Riverdogs.

“The owner used the proceeds from this transaction to refinance their existing debt and buy out their institutional partner,” Michael Sonnabend, founder & managing member, PMZ Realty Capital, said in a statement. “Our extensive relationships enabled us to achieve a phenomenal execution for the owner with an attractive fixed rate for five years representing 82 percent of the funds required with no origination fee.”
