BETHESDA, Md., Jan. 14, 2019 -- Host Hotels & Resorts, Inc. (NYSE: HST), the nation’s largest lodging real estate investment trust (the "Company"), today announced that it closed on the previously announced agreement to sell the Westin New York Grand Central hotel for $302 million, including approximately $20 million of FF&E funds. 

"We have been pleased with our continued execution of further reducing our exposure to New York, a key initiative set early on in my tenure as CEO.  With the completion of this sale, we have sold 3 assets and the retail, signage, and theater condo space at the New York Marriott Marquis for $1.1 billion at very attractive pricing.  We continue to strengthen our investment grade balance sheet and enhance our ability to make strategic investments that ultimately drive long-term value creation for our stockholders whether it is investing in our portfolio, acquiring assets, or buying back our stock," said James F. Risoleo, President and Chief Executive Officer.
