“ Our revised outlook reflects the estimated impact from Superstorm Sandy, as well as the nor’easter this past week,” said Jon Bortz, Chairman, President and Chief Executive Officer of Pebblebrook Hotel Trust. “Unfortunately, both storms significantly hindered travel in and out of the Northeast and Mid-Atlantic regions before, during and after the storms. The negative impact on our business was felt at our hotels throughout the United States as cancellations, no-shows and limited new bookings combined to produce enough lost revenue and additional expenses to warrant this revision to our outlook. We are diligently and aggressively pursuing the mitigation of our lost income through our existing insurance policies. Fortunately, none of our properties suffered any significant physical damage and we have no reported injuries from Superstorm Sandy.”
