Miami Beach Goodtime Hotel Receives $ 164 Million Funding Via Walker & Dunlop
The main attraction of the boutique hotel is the food and drink offering, which is managed by that of David Grutman Groot Hospitality. Featuring a pool, restaurant, and club with DJ performances and live music, the 26,000-square-foot pleasure deck is a destination in itself. With an emphasis on design, generous common spaces, independent branding, and premium food and beverage options, the hotel has opened its doors with great fanfare in April 2021 and was well positioned to meet the growing demand for experiential hospitality, with a high volume of bookings throughout the summer. The 266-key luxury hotel has approximately 46,000 rentable square feet of ground-floor retail as well as 242 parking spaces.
Funding was arranged by Walker & Dunlop’s Aaron Appel, Keith kurland, Jonathan schwartz, Adam schwartz, Ari hirt, and Sean bastien, who identified JP Morgan as the ideal source of capital for financing. The team arranged a three-year interest-only bridge loan with two one-year extension options on behalf of their client, Dreamscape.
