Chatham Lodging Trust Acquires the 120-room Hampton Inn & Suites®
Houston – Medical Center for $16.5 million, $137,500 per key

PALM BEACH, Fla., July 6, 2010 — Chatham Lodging Trust (NYSE: CLDT), a hotel real estate investment trust (REIT) focused on upscale extended-stay hotels and premium- branded select-service hotels, today announced that it has acquired the 120-room Hampton Inn & Suites® Houston – Medical Center in Houston, Texas for $16.5 million. 

The hotel is the first acquisition to be completed by Chatham in a previously announced agreement to acquire a portfolio of four hotels for an aggregate purchase price of $61 million, and marks the seventh acquisition completed by Chatham since its April 21, 2010 initial public offering.  The remaining three hotels are expected to close upon completion of due diligence and satisfaction of closing conditions.

Upon completion of the acquisition of the remaining three hotels in this four-hotel portfolio and the acquisition of a previously announced  additional hotel under contract in the greater metropolitan New York area, Chatham will own 11 hotels.

“The Houston Hampton Inn & Suites fits our acquisition profile of premium-branded, select-service and upscale extended-stay hotels in markets with high barriers to entry near strong demand generators,” said Jeffrey H. Fisher, Chatham’s chief executive officer.  “We have an active pipeline and an aggressive appetite to add to our portfolio.”
