Chatham Lodging Trust Sells Two Marriott-Branded Hotels in Western Pennsylvania for $10M
ALTOONA AND WASHINGTON, PA. — Florida-based hospitality REIT Chatham Lodging Trust has sold two Marriott-branded hotels in Western Pennsylvania for approximately $10 million. The properties include the 105-room Courtyard by Marriott in Altoona, about 100 miles east of Pittsburgh, and the 86-room SpringHill Suites by Marriott in Washington, located about 30 miles southwest of Pittsburgh. Chatham, which purchased the hotels in 2010 as part of a larger portfolio acquisition, sold the properties at a capitalization rate of 6 percent. The buyer was not disclosed. Chatham CEO Jeffrey Fisher noted that the revenue per available room (RevPAR) at both hotels did not meet the standards of his company’s portfolio, and that disposing of the properties saved the company roughly $4 million in renovation costs.
