Loan Programs

Bridge LOAN PROGRAM

More than any hotel finance company, Access Point Financial offers customized solutions and provides certainty of execution for franchisees who seek to capitalize on unique market opportunities, such as acquisition, conversion, refinance, discounted purchase option or note purchase. Being a preferred lender with close alliances to leading associations and brands in the hospitality industry, we are able to provide tailored loans to meet the specific needs of hotel owners. APF provides hotel financing expertise and efficient underwriting and loan processing.

APF is considered a leader in the hospitality industry for Capex, Bridge, Construction, and Mezzanine/ Preferred Equity loans. Other financial institutions only look at the hotel’s historical financial performance when making a credit decision. APF’s focus is on proforma based underwriting and understanding the transaction in detail. Each loan opportunity is unique. Our focus is on value-add transactions where the hotel is undergoing a conversion or the hotel must undergo a brand mandated Property Improvement Plan (PIP) or renovation. We will also look at construction loans, with strong and experienced sponsors, for a strong brand in a robust and stable market. We understand these types of transactions intimately and work diligently with clients to ensure a smooth and successful closing.

APF loan terms are based on the creditworthiness of the borrower and the viability of the project, and our model allows for transparent loan product delivery.
