“We’re very pleased with our portfolio’s strong operating performance in the first quarter, as revenue growth and profitability margin results exceeded both our outlook and the performance of the overall U.S. hotel industry,” said Jon E. Bortz, Chairman, President and Chief Executive Officer of Pebblebrook Hotel Trust. “Our hotels continued to benefit from strong underlying hotel industry fundamentals, despite weather related travel disruptions throughout the east coast in the first quarter. Industry demand significantly outpaced supply due to healthy increases in business transient, leisure and international inbound travel, as well as the first signs of meaningful improvement in group demand, all of which benefited our hotels, particularly those on the west coast. Significant revenue growth throughout our portfolio was widespread, though our hotels that were renovated in the last few years led the way, including Hotel Zetta, Sir Francis Drake, Sofitel Philadelphia, and Monaco Seattle – all properties where we’ve been successful at both improving and creating a unique customer experience. Our 2014 outlook remains very positive and we expect these favorable growth trends to continue throughout the year.”
