Chesapeake Lodging Trust Acquires Hyatt Santa Barbara

Stocks in this article: CHSPH

Chesapeake Lodging Trust (NYSE: CHSP) (the “Trust”) and Hyatt Hotels Corporation (NYSE: H) (“Hyatt”) announced today that the Trust has acquired the fee simple interest in the Hyatt Santa Barbara and two adjoining properties totaling 200 rooms from a Hyatt affiliate for $61.0 million, or approximately $305,000 per key. The Trust entered into a management agreement with HEI Hotels and Resorts to operate the hotel under a franchise agreement with a Hyatt affiliate.

“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.
