The LAX hotel is the first of four new management contracts in the LA area in 2017.Twenty Four Seven Hotels played a pivotal role in the highly complex transaction providing guidance to the buyer on the transactional side with sourcing, underwriting and acquiring the hotel, and on the capitalization side by assisting in the structuring of new mezzanine financing in conjunction with assumption of a senior CMBS loan. The real estate transaction and loan were both successfully brokered by Holliday Fenoglio Fowler, L.P. (HFF), on behalf of the new owner Umbrella Hotel Group, an emerging owner and developer of hotels in the Western U.S.DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel LAX is a 216-room property and the only full-service hotel within El Segundo, just minutes from Los Angeles International Airport (LAX). Recognized as the aerospace capital of the world, the community of El Segundo is home to many of the world's most influential Fortune 500 companies. Twenty Four Seven Hotels is based in Newport Beach and has also assumed management of the hotel.

We would not have been able to navigate the various milestones without a tremendous amount of deal savvy from all stakeholders involved," said Drew Hardy, President of Twenty Four Seven Hotels."With their expertise and strong relationships, we were fortunate to align with Twenty Four Seven Hotels on this significant investment opportunity, and we know their management platform will take the property to the next level in meeting our investment objectives," said Charu Goyal, founder and president of Umbrella Hotel Group, a family-owned, California-based hospitality company with a diverse inventory of retail and hotel properties.Catering to both business and leisure travelers, the seven-story DoubleTree by Hilton LAX is ideally situated in El Segundo, a hotbed for industry and innovation with the famed Silicon Beach next door. The hotel underwent renovations in 2016 that consisted of a complete reconfiguration and enhancement of first-floor public areas and guestroom upgrades.
