Hotel Status: All 35 of the Company's hotels and resorts are open and operating, as Hyatt Regency Portland at the Oregon Convention Center recommenced operations on May 24, 2021.
Recent Performance: Preliminary approximate results for May 2021 for the Company's Same-Property 34-hotel portfolio were as follows: 50% occupancy, $216 average daily rate, $108 RevPAR. April 2021 Same-Property portfolio results were as follows: 48.9% occupancy, $216.04 average daily rate, $105.67 RevPAR.
Profitability: As stated on the Company's last quarterly earnings call, the Company achieved positive monthly Adjusted EBITDAre and Adjusted FFO during March 2021 and expected to continue doing so going forward. Based on recent performance, the Company reaffirms that expectation.
"We are pleased with the top-line results achieved by our Same-Property portfolio during May," commented Marcel Verbaas, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Xenia. "Continued strength in leisure demand and the early signs of recovering corporate transient and group demand helped us exceed the occupancies achieved during the spring break season in March and April. We anticipate continued strong leisure business throughout the summer and are optimistic about meaningful improvement from the corporate and group segments this fall. We are excited about the recent recommencement of operations at Hyatt Regency Portland and that our entire 35-property portfolio is welcoming guests. We thank our operators and their associates at our hotels for their tireless efforts since the beginning of the pandemic which have allowed us to be positioned well for a robust recovery."
