"We're very excited about the terrific performance of our portfolio in the second quarter, as we continued to outperform the hotel industry's strong growth," said Jon E. Bortz, Chairman, President and Chief Executive Officer of Pebblebrook Hotel Trust. "Our hotels continue to realize healthy increases in travel demand from the business and leisure transient segments, as well as ongoing strength from inbound international travel. In addition, the group demand rebound that we experienced in the year accelerated in the second quarter. These positive demand trends, coupled with strong pricing power, contributed to the robust increases in our income and our cash flow. Based on the strong performance experienced in the overall industry and our portfolio during the first half of 2014, as well as the group and transient pace for the second half of the year, we are increasing our outlook for the U.S. hotel industry and our portfolio."
Second Quarter Highlights
"We were able to grow same-property RevPAR by 9.2 percent in the second quarter, in excess of the industry's 8.2 percent growth," added Mr. Bortz. "As a result, same-property EBITDA increased 12.1 percent over the prior year as the implementation of our asset management and best practice initiatives continues to drive our strong results. We see further upside from our strategy of owning high-quality hotels located in high barrier to entry coastal gateway cities. Furthermore, our hotels continue to pick up market share in comparison to their competitors as they benefit from prior renovations and improvements. These benefits should continue to accrue over the next several years."
Capital Reinvestment and Asset Management
During the second quarter, the Company invested $10.1 million in capital improvements throughout its portfolio, including the Company's 49 percent interest in its six hotel joint venture with Denihan Hospitality Group (the "Manhattan Collection"). The Company's capital improvements included $1.9 million at Hotel Palomar San Francisco, $1.0 million at Hotel Vintage Seattle, $0.9 million at Radisson Hotel Fisherman's Wharf, and $0.7 million at W Los Angeles - Westwood.
As of the end of the second quarter, the Company has completed the addition of four guest rooms at the Embassy Suites San Diego Bay Downtown and the comprehensive renovation and repositioning of the 125-room Hotel Vintage Park Seattle, which has been renamed Hotel Vintage Seattle. The Company has also substantially completed the restaurant and lobby renovations along with the addition of five guest rooms at the 201-room Hotel Palomar San Francisco.
During the fourth quarter of 2014, the Company plans to commence a comprehensive renovation and repositioning at the 355-room Radisson Hotel Fisherman's Wharf, a guest rooms and public areas renovation of the 258-room W Los Angeles-Westwood, including the potential addition of 39 guest rooms, and a lobby and atrium renovation at the 341-room Embassy Suites San Diego Bay Downtown.
"We're thrilled with the acquisition of these two terrific hotels located in our West Coast target markets of San Francisco and Portland," commented Mr. Bortz. "We believe these properties offer great opportunities for outsized RevPAR growth, margin expansion and value creation through opportunistic capital investment and the implementation of our asset management and best practice initiatives in collaboration with our operating partners."
As of June 30, 2014, the Company had $579.8 million in consolidated debt and $225.4 million in unconsolidated, non-recourse, secured debt at weighted-average interest rates of 4.2 percent and 3.6 percent, respectively.
