NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Kroll Bond Rating Agency (KBRA) is pleased to announce the assignment of preliminary ratings to ten classes of Hilton Orlando Trust 2018-ORL, a $475.0 million CMBS single-asset, single-borrower transaction.
The collateral for the transaction consists of a $475.0 million non-recourse, first lien mortgage loan. The floating rate loan has an initial two-year term with five, one-year extension options and requires monthly interest-only payments based on one-month LIBOR plus a spread of 2.05%. The loan is secured by the borrower’s fee simple interest in the Hilton Orlando, a 1,417-key, 19-story full-service hotel located along International Drive, across the street from, and connected via a pedestrian sky bridge to, the Orange County Convention Center in Orlando, Florida. The hotel opened in September 2009 and the sponsors have spent an additional $27.5 million ($19,399 per key) on capital improvements since 2011.
KBRA’s analysis of the transaction included a detailed evaluation of the property’s cash flow 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 $51.6 million. We applied a capitalization rate of 10.50% and arrived at a KBRA value of $491.4 million and a KBRA Loan to Value (KLTV) of 96.7%. In our analysis of the transaction, we also reviewed and considered third party engineering, environmental and appraisal reports; management agreement; STR reports; the results of our site inspection; and legal documentation.
For further details on KBRA’s analysis, please see our pre-sale report, Hilton Orlando Trust 2018-ORL, which was published today at www.kbra.com. The preliminary ratings are based on information known to KBRA at the time of this publication.
