Institutional Property Advisors (IPA), ​​a division of Marcus & Millichap, arranged the financing with a team led by Jordan Ray, Steven Buchwald, Jamie Matheny and Lexington Henn.

“The property is strategically located in Koreatown right between Hollywood and Downtown LA. Locals and guests love the restaurants, bars and active lobby scene. It’s a great midway point to meet in L.A.” Ray said. “We created a market and structured a very attractive deal that met the client’s needs and vision for the asset.” 

Located at 3515 Wilshire Boulevard, the hotel was originally built in 1964 and was once the temporary home ofjournalist and author Hunter S. Thompson. Hotel amenities include a pool on the second-floor garden terrace, restaurant and event venues. 

Officials at Yucaipa Companies did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
