Rating Action: Moody's assigns provisional ratings to two CMBS Classes of GS Mortgage Securities Corporation Trust 2022-GTWYGlobal Credit Research – 11 Aug 2022$350.0 million of structured securities affectedNew York, August 10, 2022 — Moody's Investors Service ("Moody's") has assigned provisional ratings to two classes of CMBS securities, to be issued GS Mortgage Securities Corporation Trust 2022-GTWY, Commercial Mortgage Pass-Through Certificates, Series 2022-GTWY: Cl. A., Assigned (P)Aaa (sf) Cl. HRR., Assigned (P)A1 (sf) RATINGS RATIONALE The certificates are collateralized by a first-lien mortgage on the fee simple interests in three luxury full-service hotels located across two states and the District of Columbia (the "portfolio"). Our ratings are based on the credit quality of the loans and the strength of the securitization structure.All hotels are located within infill neighborhoods of gateway U.S. cities New York, San Francisco, and Washington D.C. The portfolio has a weighted average year built of 1938 (~84 years old), as the individual hotels were constructed at various points between 1904 and 1980. However, the properties are well-maintained and approximately $115.7 million ($59,487 per key) has been invested into the portfolio since 2015. All hotels have undergone a major room renovation since 2015. The sponsor is budgeting to invest $62.0 million ($31,870 per key) in CapEx across the portfolio in 2022 and 2023.The portfolio hotels benefit from experienced management and international luxury brand recognition. One property (222 keys) operates under the Four Seasons brand family; one property (528 keys) operates under the JW Marriott brand family, and one property (1,195 keys) operates under the Westin brand family. Each hotel benefits from their brand's reservation systems and international marketing efforts.The portfolio is geographically diverse as the three properties are located within three distinct markets across two states and the District of Columbia. The loan's property-level Herfindahl score is 2.7 based on allocated loan amount ("ALA"). California represents the largest state concentration with Westin St. Francis totaling 1,195 guestrooms, or approximately 48.6% of the ALA and 53.5% of UW NCF.Moody's approach to rating this transaction involved the application of our Large Loan and Single Asset/Single Borrower Commercial Mortgage-Backed Securitizations methodology. The rating approach for securities backed by a single loan compares the credit risk inherent in the underlying collateral with the credit protection offered by the structure. The structure's credit enhancement is quantified by the maximum deterioration in property value that the securities are able to withstand under various stress scenarios without causing an increase in the expected loss for various rating levels. In assigning single borrower ratings, we also consider a range of qualitative issues as well as the transaction's structural and legal aspects.The credit risk of loans is determined primarily by two factors: 1) Moody's assessment of the probability of default, which is largely driven by each loan's DSCR, and 2) Moody's assessment of the severity of loss upon a default, which is largely driven by each loan's loan-to-value ratio, referred to as the Moody's LTV or MLTV. As described in the CMBS methodology used to rate this transaction, we make various adjustments to the MLTV. We adjust the MLTV for each loan using a value that reflects capitalization (cap) rates that are between our sustainable cap rates and market cap rates. We also use an adjusted loan balance that reflects each loan's amortization profile.The Moody's first mortgage actual DSCR is 2.32X and Moody's mortgage actual stressed DSCR is 1.46X. Moody's DSCR is based on our stabilized net cash flow.Moody's LTV ratio for the first mortgage balance of $350,000,000 is 62.7%. Moody's LTV ratio is based on our Moody's value. We did not adjust Moody's value to reflect the current interest rate environment as part of our analysis for this transaction.Moody's also grades properties on a scale of 0 to 5 (best to worst) and considers those grades when assessing the likelihood of debt payment. The factors considered include property age, quality of construction, location, market, and tenancy. The portfolio's property quality grade is 1.05.Notable strengths of the transaction include portfolio's superior quality, brand affiliation, fresh equity, capital investment, low MLTV, geographic diversity and sponsorship.Notable concerns of the transaction include the effects of coronavirus pandemic on recent portfolio performance, property age, floor values for two assets, full-term interest-only floating-rate mortgage loan profile, performance volatility inherent within the hotel sector and credit-negative legal features.The principal methodology used in these ratings was " Large Loan and Single Asset/Single Borrower Commercial Mortgage-Backed Securitizations Methodology " published in July 2022 and available at https://ratings.moodys.com/api/rmc-documents/391055. Alternatively, please see the Rating Methodologies page on https://ratings.moodys.com for a copy of this methodology.Moody's approach for single borrower and large loan multi-borrower transactions evaluates credit enhancement levels based on an aggregation of adjusted loan level proceeds derived from our Moody's loan level LTV ratios. Major adjustments to determining proceeds include leverage, loan structure, and property type. These aggregated proceeds are then further adjusted for any pooling benefits associated with loan level diversity, other concentrations and correlations.Factors that would lead to an upgrade or downgrade of the rating:The performance expectations for a given variable indicate Moody's forward-looking view of the likely range of performance over the medium term. Performance that falls outside the given range may indicate that the collateral's credit quality is stronger or weaker than Moody's had previously anticipated. Factors that may cause an upgrade of the ratings include significant loan pay downs or amortization, an increase in the pool's share of defeasance or overall improved pool performance. Factors that may cause a downgrade of the ratings include a decline in the overall performance of the pool, loan concentration, increased expected losses from specially serviced and troubled loans or interest shortfalls.Today's action has considered how the coronavirus pandemic has reshaped U.S. economic environment and the way its aftershocks will continue to reverberate and influence the performance of commercial real estate. We expect the public health situation to improve as vaccinations against COVID-19 increase and societies continue to adapt to new protocols. Still, the exit from the pandemic will likely be bumpy and unpredictable and economic prospects will vary.We regard the coronavirus outbreak as a social risk under our ESG framework, given the substantial implications for public health and safety.REGULATORY DISCLOSURESFor further specification of Moody's key rating assumptions and sensitivity analysis, see the sections Methodology Assumptions and Sensitivity to Assumptions in the disclosure form. Moody's Rating Symbols and Definitions can be found on https://ratings.moodys.com/rating-definitions.Further information on the representations and warranties and enforcement mechanisms available to investors are available on https://ratings.moodys.com/documents/PBS_1328883.The analysis includes an assessment of collateral characteristics and performance to determine the expected collateral loss or a range of expected collateral losses or cash flows to the rated instruments. As a second step, Moody's estimates expected collateral losses or cash flows using a quantitative tool that takes into account credit enhancement, loss allocation and other structural features, to derive the expected loss for each rated instrument.Moody's quantitative analysis entails an evaluation of scenarios that stress factors contributing to sensitivity of ratings and take into account the likelihood of severe collateral losses or impaired cash flows. Moody's weights the impact on the rated instruments based on its assumptions of the likelihood of the events in such scenarios occurring.For ratings issued on a program, series, category/class of debt or security this announcement provides certain regulatory disclosures in relation to each rating of a subsequently issued bond or note of the same series, category/class of debt, security or pursuant to a program for which the ratings are derived exclusively from existing ratings in accordance with Moody's rating practices.
