Hersha Hospitality Refinances Capitol Hill Suites

Hersha Hospitality Trust (NYSE: HT), owner of upscale and select service hotels in urban gateway markets, announced that the Company has refinanced the outstanding debt on its Capitol Hill Suites located in Washington, D.C. The new $27.5 million loan has a fixed interest rate of 3.79% and is scheduled to mature in February 2015. The loan also maintains a two year extension option which would allow for a February 2017 maturity.

The Capitol Hill Suites is an all-suite boutique hotel centrally located in the Capitol Hill district catering to the needs of this high-demand submarket. The hotel is located a block away from the United States Capitol Complex, the House of Representatives office complex, the United States Supreme Court and the Library of Congress. The 152-room Capitol Hill Suites was acquired in April 2011 for $47.5 million and Hersha is investing another $3 million to significantly upgrade all public areas, add two new meeting rooms, and for some further suite improvements.
