RLJ Lodging continues capital recycling program, sells Hilton Mystic

RLJ Lodging Trust has sold an additional non-strategic hotel, the 182-room Hilton Mystic, in Mystic, Conn., for approximately $14.1 million or $77,200 per key. The sale price represents approximately a 7.4-percent capitalization rate on the hotel's projected 2014 net operating income, adjusted for approximately $4.5 million of pending capital expenditures.

"We continue to focus on creating value by recycling capital from non-strategic asset sales into higher-yielding acquisitions," said Thomas J. Baltimore, Jr., president and CEO. "Our capital recycling program remains active. Over the last five months we have sold 14 non-strategic hotels for over $115.0 million. As we continue to enhance our portfolio, we will remain disciplined in the selection and execution of all asset sales."

The 2013 revenue per available room hotel represents a discount of approximately 18 percent to the company's reported 2013 pro forma RevPAR.
