Sunstone Hotel Investors, Inc., has acquired The Confidante Miami Beach for $232 million

Sunstone Plans $232M Acquisition, $60M Transformation of Miami Beach Hotel

Sunstone Hotel Investors, Inc., has entered into a definitive agreement with an affiliate of Hyatt Hotels Corporation to acquire the 339-room The Confidante Miami Beach for $232 million ($684,000 per key).

The purchase price represents a 17.3x multiple on 2022 forecasted hotel EBITDA and a 5.0% capitalization rate on 2022 forecasted hotel net operating income. The acquisition will be funded through a combination of cash on hand and from borrowing on the company’s currently undrawn revolving credit facility.

The hotel, located on 1.5 acres of fee-simple, oceanfront land in Miami Beach, will undergo a $60-million transformation and rebranding under Hyatt’s luxury brand to Andaz Miami Beach.   Upon completion of the renovation, the company expects the Hotel to generate an 8% to 9% stabilized net operating income yield on the total investment in the hotel, including the planned repositioning.
