Knighthead Provides $38M Refi to 204-Room Marriott Hotel in Nashville

Knighthead Funding, LLC, has provided a $37.6-million first mortgage loan to refinance the 204-key Marriott TownePlace Suites hotel in downtown Nashville, TN. The five-year, non-recourse loan refinances the in-place construction loan.

Peter Illuzi of Knighthead originated the loan.

“The underlying fundamentals of the Nashville market continue to show impressive strength, with the growing numbers of people traveling for both business and pleasure increasing demand for assets like TownePlace Suites Downtown,” said Jonathan Daniel, principal of Knighthead.

Opened in October 2020, TownePlace Suites Downtown is one of Marriott’s extended- stay, all-suite hotels in the market and features amenity package that includes a rooftop bar, a fitness center and a 1,080-square-foot coffee shop. According to Knighthead, the property has come out of the COVID-19 pandemic exceeding average daily rate and occupancy projections year-to-date.
