“Our operators, working closely with our asset management team, were able to increase Same-Property EBITDA 8.8 percent over the prior year period and improve operating margins by 93 basis points during the quarter, despite the significant negative impact from the renovation disruptions caused by the on-going comprehensive renovations at the Affinia 50 and the public area renovations at the Affinia Manhattan,” added Mr. Bortz. “We believe our portfolio has significant opportunities to generate outsized revenue and EBITDA growth as we continue to make progress implementing our array of asset management initiatives, best practices and operating efficiencies. Our strong second quarter results illustrate the benefits of our strategy of primarily investing in high-quality hotels that have historically underperformed, are located in dynamic urban markets in major gateway cities and which will benefit from our comprehensive asset management approach.”
