PMZ Realty Capital LLC Arranges $29.0 Million Loan for The Holiday Inn Resort and The Beachview Club – Jekyll Island, Georgia


PMZ Realty Capital LLC, a boutique real estate investment banking firm,  arranged a $29.0 million  loan for  The Holiday Inn Resort  and The Beachview Club of Jekyll Island GA. PMZ Realty Capital specializes in hotel real estate investment banking nationwide, with an expertise in sourcing capital for the hospitality industry.

“With historically low rates, and an abundance of capital in the market, PMZ Realty Capital is strongly encouraging anyone sitting on the fence to review their current financing” commented Michael Sonnabend, Managing Member, PMZ Realty Capital LLC.   “In this situation, the owners were able to get cash back and increase cash flow due to a lower interest rate and longer amortization.” Sonnabend remarked, “This is a repeat engagement with this ownership group and we value our role as trusted advisors.”

The 157-key Holiday Inn Resort Jekyll Island is an oceanfront property that was acquired in 2013. The resort was fully gutted,  and then re-opened in 2015 with an affiliation with Holiday Inn Resorts. Modern amenities include fully renovated rooms, an oversized fitness center, coffee bar, outdoor bar and grill, new pool and play area for children.

The 38-key Beachview Club is adjacent to the Holiday Inn property and features oversized rooms that are steps away from the beach. After acquiring the property in 2017, the ownership group renovated the asset to create an upscale boutique beachfront hotel.

“Jekyll Island is a unique location where 65% of the island must remain undisturbed nature area by Georgia law” said Rick Patton, Managing Member, Georgia Coast Holdings. “The barrier islands of Georgia are truly a special area and PMZ presented us a list of options that allow us to secure very favorable financing even though the Beachview Club had just opened. By controlling our borrowing costs, we are able to invest in the guest experience and to provide a strong return for our investors.”

The Holiday Inn Resort Jekyll Island and the Beachview Club will be managed by North Pointe Hospitality.
