Expansion Planned for Downtown Nashville Hotel

JLL secures $58.6 million in acquisition financing for Hampton Inn & Suites Nashville Downtown

NASHVILLE, March 31, 2016 – Capitalizing on Nashville’s double-digit revenue per available room (RevPAR) growth in 2015, JLL and the LCP Group, L.P. today announced $58.6 million in acquisition financing for Hampton Inn & Suites Nashville Downtown on behalf of LCP Nashville Hotel I LLC. Bank of the Ozarks provided the loan, which will also be used for renovations to the property.

Executive Managing Director Mike Melody, Executive Vice President Bill Grice and Senior Vice President Jonathan Paine led the JLL team on the transaction.

“Nashville’s lodging market has grown tremendously over the past few years and is poised for continued growth,” said Paine. “The hotel is within walking distance to many of Nashville’s prime attractions, which appeals to the 12 million tourists who visit the city annually.”

Added Grice, “Select service hotels, especially those located in top secondary markets, deliver attractive yields as upward RevPAR momentum continues. Thus, these assets will remain highly sought after by investors and lenders alike.”

The 154-key select service hotel is located in the heart of downtown Nashville, directly across from the new 1.2 million-square-foot Music City Center. The hotel features four separate meeting spaces, an indoor pool and a fitness center. LCP Nashville Hotel I LLC plans to add guestrooms to the property and update existing guestrooms and common areas.
