January 09, 2020

PORTLAND, ORE., January 9, 2020 – JLL announced today that it has closed the sale of and arranged acquisition financing for the Crowne Plaza Portland-Lake Oswego, a 161-room, full-service hotel in the Portland-area community of Lake Oswego, Oregon.

JLL Hotels & Hospitality marketed the property on behalf of the seller. BHG Hotels, one of the premier hotel owner, developer and operators in the Pacific Northwest, purchased the asset. Additionally, JLL Capital Markets placed the floating-rate loan with First Interstate Bank.

Crowne Plaza Portland-Lake Oswego is the only full-service hotel in Lake Oswego, an affluent suburb 10 miles south of downtown Portland and on the west bank of the Willamette River. It is consistently ranked in the top 10% in “Overall Experience” of all Crowne Plaza Hotels in the world. Opened in 1989, the six-story hotel completed a comprehensive renovation in 2018 and features first-class amenities, including 5,670 square feet of meeting and event space, the Oswego Atrium Restaurant & Bar, a 24-hour business center, 24-hour fitness center, indoor/outdoor pool and IHG Wellness Center with snacks and refreshments for purchase.

The hotel is situated on 3.09 acres at 14811 Kruse Oaks Drive adjacent to the 1.8-million-square-foot Kruse Woods Corporate Park and Silicon Forest, home to one of the most diverse high-technology industry clusters in the country. Additionally, Crowne Plaza Portland-Lake Oswego is at the gateway to Lake Oswego and Kruse Way and just off Interstate 5, the highest-traffic highway in Oregon.

The JLL Hotels & Hospitality team representing the seller was led by Senior Vice President Melvin Chu.

“The Crowne Plaza is the only full-service hotel in Lake Oswego,” Chu said. “Given its recent renovation, the hotel is well positioned to be the preferred group and corporate hotel in Lake Oswego. With excellent corporate presence in the surrounding area, the new owner will be able to capitalize on the potential of this unique offering.”

The JLL Capital Markets debt placement team representing the new owner included Managing Director Casey Davidson and Associate Aaron Lapping.
