Pebblebrook Hotel Trust and Denihan Hospitality Group have split up their portfolio of six Manhattan hotels in an agreement that values the properties at a combined $820 million.
Pebblebrook, the Bethesda, MD-based real estate investment trust, walked away with the 618-room Manhattan NYC hotel near Madison Square Garden and the 252-key Dumont NYC in Kips Bay, according to a press release issued Thursday.
The two properties were valued at $342.5 million.
“We are actively marketing these two hotels for sale and continue to be encouraged with the interest shown by the investment community, from both domestic and international investors, in high-quality Manhattan real estate,” Pebblebrook CIO Thomas Fisher said in a statement.
Denihan, a family firm headquartered in Midtown, now owns 100 percent of the Benjamin near the Waldorf-Astoria, Fifty NYC in Midtown East, Shelburne NYC in Murray Hill and Gardens NYC in Lenox Hill. Hunton & Williams’ Carl Schwartz and Anthony Bonan advised Pebblebrook. – Rich Bockmann
