LaSalle Hotel Properties Announces Acquisition Of Southernmost Hotel Collection In Key West, Florida For $184.5 Million

LaSalle Hotel Properties (NYSE: LHO) today announced that it acquired the 260-room Southernmost Hotel Collection in Key West, Florida. The purchase price was $184.5 million. The Southernmost Hotel Collection consists of the Southernmost on the Beach, Southernmost Hotel in the USA and La Mer Hotel & Dewey House. The Company funded the transaction with borrowings from its Senior Unsecured Credit Facility.

The property is situated directly on the Atlantic Ocean in Key West, Florida, one of the strongest and most supply-constrained hotel markets in the United States. The hotel is located on the southern end of Duval Street, which runs through Key West’s “Old Town” and is home to many of its famous bars, restaurants, shops, bed and breakfasts and historic sites.

The Hotel features 3,128 square feet of meeting space, including 2,488 square feet of outdoor space. The restaurant, Southernmost Beach Café, which is located on the beach overlooking the Atlantic Ocean, serves breakfast, lunch and dinner and provides catering for private events. The Hotel also has three bars located throughout the property. The Shores Bar and Sand Bar are located at Southernmost on the Beach, while the Pineapple Bar is located at Southernmost Hotel in the USA. The property also offers three pools, a tanning pier, a private oceanfront beach and access to the public beach, South Beach. The Southernmost Hotel Collection includes La Petit Spa and a fitness center in addition to offering resort recreation and activities.

The property is in excellent condition, as $13.8 million has been invested in renovations over the last three years. The Southernmost Hotel Collection will be operated by Highgate Hotels.

Southernmost on the Beach

Southernmost on the Beach consists of six guestroom buildings. The two original buildings were remodeled in 2010 and 2011. Four additional guestroom buildings were constructed in 2008. Additional recent upgrades include the construction of the private beach and garden areas, renovation of the pool, construction of Shores Bar, a new fitness area and renovation and expansion of the lobby.
