NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Kroll Bond Rating Agency (KBRA) is pleased to announce the assignment of preliminary ratings to six classes of Atrium Hotel Portfolio Trust 2017-ATRM, a $600.0 million CMBS single-borrower transaction.
The collateral for the securitization consists of a $600.0 million non-recourse, first lien, floating-rate mortgage loan that is secured by the borrower’s fee simple interest in 26 hotels totaling 6,228 keys, the fee simple/leasehold interest in one hotel totaling 234 keys and the leasehold interest in two hotels totaling 553 keys. For the TTM 9/2017 period, the portfolio’s occupancy was 70.1% with an average daily rate (ADR) of $127.64, resulting in revenue per available room (RevPAR) of $89.46.
The underlying collateral properties consist of 25 full-service hotels (94.2%), two limited-service properties (3.0%), and two extended-stay properties (2.8%) located in 28 different MSAs in 16 states. All but one of the portfolio properties are operated under national flags including Embassy Suites by Hilton (10 properties, 44.7%), Marriott (five properties, 14.0%), Holiday Inn (four properties, 14.6%), Renaissance (two properties, 9.1%), Hilton (one property, 4.5%), Crowne Plaza (one hotel, 3.1%), Hampton Inn (two properties, 3.0%), Homewood Suites (two properties, 2.8%), and Sheraton (one property, 2.5%).
KBRA’s analysis of the transaction included a detailed evaluation of the properties’ cash flows using our CMBS Property Evaluation Methodology, and the application of our CMBS Single Borrower and Large Loan Rating Methodology. The results of our analysis yielded a KBRA net cash flow (KNCF) for the portfolio of $74.0 million. To value the portfolio, KBRA applied a blended capitalization rate of 11.28% to arrive at a KBRA value of $656.3 million. The resulting KBRA Loan to Value (KLTV) is 91.4%. In our analysis of the transaction, we also reviewed and considered third party engineering, environmental and appraisal reports; management agreements; franchise agreements; STR reports; the results of our site inspections of 10 of the properties; and legal documentation review.
