“We are excited about our accomplishments in the second quarter. We were able to prudently deploy proceeds from our February common share offering by acquiring three hotels, all with significant upside potential,” said James L. Francis, Chesapeake Lodging Trust’s President and Chief Executive Officer. “Furthermore, we also successfully completed a refinancing that further strengthened our balance sheet by both lowering our cost of debt and extending our debt maturities.”

Mr. Francis continued, “Our hotel portfolio also turned in an outstanding quarter, reaching a second quarter occupancy level of over 85% which allowed our operators to continue pushing daily rates. We are very proud of our hotel margin expansion of 170 basis points which was a result of our continued focus on asset management initiatives to reduce or limit increases in expenses.”
