HOTEL OPERATING RESULTS

Management assesses the operating performance of its hotels irrespective of the hotel owner during the periods compared using the following key operating metrics: occupancy, ADR, RevPAR, Adjusted Hotel EBITDA, and Adjusted Hotel EBITDA Margin. The Trust uses the term "pro forma" to refer to metrics that include, or comparisons of metrics that are based on, the operating results of hotels under previous ownership for either a portion of or the entire period. As of December 31, 2015, the Trust owned 22 hotels. Since two of its hotels owned as of December 31, 2015 were acquired during 2015 and another one was acquired in October 2014, the key operating metrics below reflect the pro forma operating results for those hotels for all, or a certain period, of the three months and year ended December 31, 2015 and 2014.

Included in the following table are comparisons of the key operating metrics for the hotel portfolio for the three months and year ended December 31, 2015 and 2014 (in thousands, except for ADR and RevPAR):

The Trust’s 2016 outlook assumes no acquisitions, dispositions, or financing transactions beyond the refinance of the Hyatt Regency Boston mortgage loan and the Courtyard Washington Capitol Hill/Navy Yard mortgage loan, which are prepayable without penalty on April 6, 2016 and August 1, 2016, respectively.

“We are off to a strong start in 2016 with RevPAR growth of over 9.0% in January.

Francis, Chesapeake Lodging Trust’s President and Chief Executive Officer. “We expect the remainder of the quarter to exhibit continued strong growth and as a result, we are reaffirming the first quarter and full year outlook we provided earlier this year.”
