ANNAPOLIS, Md.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Chesapeake Lodging Trust (NYSE:CHSP) (the “Trust”) announced today that it has closed on the previously announced sale of the Courtyard Anaheim at Disneyland Resort for a sale price of $32.5 million, or $212,000 per key.
“We are thrilled to have closed on the sale of this non-strategic asset,” commented James L. Francis, President and Chief Executive Officer of the Trust. “We purchased the Courtyard Anaheim in 2010 as a part of our acquisition of the Hilton Checkers in downtown Los Angeles. While the Courtyard Anaheim has been a very solid performer for the Trust, its non-core CBD location was not consistent with the high-quality portfolio that we have built over the past four years.”
The Courtyard Anaheim at Disneyland Resort was one of the Trust’s earliest investments, purchased in July 2010 for $25.0 million, or $163,000 per key. The $32.5 million sale price represents a 7.1% trailing twelve month NOI cap rate and produces a 13.3% unleveraged internal rate of return for the Trust over its ownership period.
