“With the hospitality industry in a sustained recovery cycle, hotel owners are looking for thoughtful options with capital partners that understand the complexity of the industry, particularly considering the impact of the pandemic on hotel operators,” Stonehill Principal Matt Crosswy said in a statement. “This transaction reflects our ability to understand a complex transaction and quickly meet our sponsor’s financial deadlines.”

The properties include a 179-room Hyatt Place at 225 W Wilson Avenue in Glendale, Calif., about 25 miles outside of Los Angeles; a 220-room Hyatt Centric at 601 SW 11th Avenue in Portland, Ore.; 165-room Hyatt House on 2105 North 1st Street in San Jose, Calif.; and the 190-room Hyatt Place San Jose Airport at 82 Karina Court
