“Asset Recycling. On 11/13, the company announced the acquisition of four hotels that have 652 rooms for $164m at a 7.8% cap rate (including capex). The hotels are located in New Haven, Boston/Waltham, Cleveland and Tucson. Three markets are new for the company and, as a result, add further to regional diversification. The company plans to spend $7-9m in capital improvements over the next two years (more than 50% of the improvement is expected for the hotel in Boston). TTM RevPAR (as of 3Q17) for the four hotels is about 10% higher than the company’s RevPAR for the same period. These acquisitions bring the YTD total to $600m and are in line with the company’s acquisition strategy, which is focused on upscale hotels and value-add opportunities such as renovations. We expect acquisitions to continue and currently include $200m of additional acquisitions for 2018. YTD, the company has sold hotels for $120.2m and remains opportunistic in regard to dispositions.”,” Cantor Fitzgerald’s analyst wrote.
