Chesapeake Lodging Trust Acquires California's 171-room Hyatt Santa Barbara for $305,000 per key
June 28, 2013 12:16pm
“We are very excited to acquire the recently renovated Hyatt Santa Barbara while we continue to grow our relationship with Hyatt,” stated James L. Francis, President and Chief Executive Officer of the Trust. “The property is ideally located on the Pacific Ocean and walking distance to the shops and restaurants of downtown Santa Barbara.” The city is an extremely popular travel destination with its Mediterranean climate, miles of coastline and beaches, wineries, upscale shopping and restaurants.”
“We recognized the hotel’s long-term potential when we acquired it and leveraged our expertise in architecture and design to further increase its market value. We are delighted to be deepening our relationship with Chesapeake and leveraging that higher market value to recycle capital while maintaining a long-term brand presence in the market,” said Stephen Haggerty, global head, real estate and capital strategy for Hyatt.
The property is comprised of the 171-room Hyatt Santa Barbara, the 24-room Parkside Inn and a five-villa apartment building that is currently used for long-term, monthly lease stays. Hyatt Santa Barbara is made up of four historic, three-story Spanish colonial buildings that have been carefully restored and are primarily located across from the Santa Barbara beach along East Cabrillo Boulevard. The hotel offers well-sized guestrooms including five suites that average over 700 square feet, 10,000 square feet of flexible meeting space, a full service restaurant and lounge, a recently created full service spa, a heated outdoor pool and whirlpool, a business service center and a large state-of-the-art fitness center. The Trust is still evaluating its options, but has initial plans to renovate and convert the five-villa apartment building into an all luxury suite building.
Hyatt recently completed a $12 million renovation of the property, addressing all guestrooms, corridors, meeting spaces and the registration lobby. The Trust will reposition the restaurant and bar with a new design and service concept drawing inspiration from the picturesque ocean front beach views. “There is minimal work to be done at the hotel following Hyatt’s extensive renovations,” continued Mr. Francis. “The dynamic location along the Pacific Ocean creates the perfect opportunity to create a vibrant food and beverage venue, which will include outdoor seating spaces for both in-house guests and the Santa Barbara community.”
