DALLAS, Aug. 1, 2023 /PRNewswire/ — Braemar Hotels & Resorts Inc. (NYSE: BHR) (“Braemar” or the “Company”) today announced that it has entered into a new $200 million corporate financing.

The use of proceeds for the financing was to repay the mortgage debt associated with the Ritz-Carlton Sarasota, the Bardessono Hotel and Spa, and the Hotel Yountville, which will serve as the borrowing base for the financing.

“We are pleased to complete this new corporate level financing which strengthens our balance sheet and provides enhanced optionality and financial flexibility,” said Richard J. Stockton, Braemar’s President and Chief Executive Officer. “We appreciate the strong support we received from our lending partners, underscoring our high-quality portfolio of resort and urban assets and Braemar’s future prospects for continued growth.”
