The JW Marriott is a 12-story hotel with 581 rooms and 29 suites. The hotel has 38 meetings rooms spanning 45,000 square feet, plus a 20,000-square-foot spa, a fitness center and a full-service, seasonal Italian restaurant, according to information on the hotel’s website.

The first 12 floors of the property—previously the Continental & Commercial National Bank Building— were transformed into a 610-room hotel in 2010.

HFF’s Danny Kaufman and Jeff Bucaro arranged the financing, according to information provided by Natixis. The HFF brokers didn’t immediately return a request for comment and nor did an official for Natixis.
