Pebblebrook Hotel Trust has announced the successful extension of a significant portion of its October 2024 maturity term loan.

The $357m extension pushes the maturity date of the loan to January 2028. This strategic move allows the company to manage its debt structure effectively.

Pebblebrook Hotel Trust is the largest owner of urban and resort lifestyle hotels in the United States and owns 46 hotels across 13 urban and resort markets, totalling 12,000 guest rooms.

Debt repayment and financial resilience

As part of the refinancing process, Pebblebrook Hotel Trust paid down about $157.6m of existing term loans and unsecured private placement notes.

The funds were sourced from the company’s balance sheet, bolstered by more than $330m from property sales in 2023.

The company now has no substantial debt maturities until October 2025. This proactive approach aligns with Pebblebrook’s stated strategic capital allocation objectives.
