Pebblebrook Hotel Trust (NYSE:PEB) (the “Company”) today announced that it has acquired the Radisson Hotel Fisherman’s Wharf and Retail for $132.0 million. The 355-room hotel, which includes approximately 44,000 square feet of street retail space, is located in the heart of Fisherman’s Wharf in San Francisco, CA. The property will be managed by Davidson Hotels & Resorts (“Davidson”).
“We’re very pleased with our acquisition of the Radisson Hotel Fisherman’s Wharf and Retail, located in one of San Francisco’s strongest submarkets,” said Jon Bortz, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Pebblebrook Hotel Trust. “This hotel benefits from an excellent location in the heart of Fisherman's Wharf, which is reflected in the hotel's consistently high occupancy levels and strong cash flows. The property’s diversity of income streams, including the revenue from 44,000 square feet of premier ground level retail space, coupled with a significant repositioning opportunity, makes the Radisson Hotel Fisherman’s Wharf and Retail another terrific addition to our expanding portfolio.”
The Radisson Hotel Fisherman’s Wharf and Retail occupies an entire block of San Francisco’s Fisherman’s Wharf, bordered by Jefferson, Mason, Beach and Powell Streets, across the street from Pier 39. Situated on the San Francisco Bay, the hotel offers outstanding views of the Golden Gate Bridge and Alcatraz and is immediately adjacent to the Ferry terminals serving popular tourist destinations around the Bay. Just blocks from famous landmarks, including San Francisco’s Aquarium of the Bay, Ghirardelli Square and the Powell Street cable car turnaround, the hotel is also a short distance from North Beach, the Financial District and Moscone Center, California’s largest convention center and exhibit hall. San Francisco consistently ranks among the top tourist destinations in the world and serves as a West Coast hub for tourism, technology, banking and financial services. The hotel’s immediate area along Jefferson Street is currently undergoing a $4.0 million beautification project, creating a pedestrian-friendly, outdoor plaza experience directly in front of the property, improving the experience for the over 25,000 people who visit the area each day.
