Pinnacle Hotel Finance is different from the typical lending institution. We act as an intermediary between hotel owners and numerous capital providers in a way that allows us to provide our clients with some of the most competitive financing available in today’s market. Pinnacle has the flexibility to operate “outside the box” at a time when many lending institutions only operate “inside the box”.


Since inception, Pinnacle Hotel Finance has originated hundreds of millions of dollars in debt financing for hotel owners and developers across the country. Our business model is one that allows us to quickly adapt to changes in the credit and capital markets without affecting our primary goals of originating hotel loans with competitive terms while providing excellent service to our clients.


Many lending institutions are inflexible and will often only offer clients limited options in securing hotel financing. This often leaves hotel owners constrained or with a financing structure that is inadequate for their situation. Pinnacle strives to make sure its clients have the opportunity to choose a financing structure that specifically meets their need without sacrificing their time and money.
