Braemar Hotels & Resorts Provides Update On August 2021 Operating Performance

Braemar Hotels & Resorts Inc. (NYSE: BHR) reported today preliminary portfolio occupancy of 59.2% for the month of August with an average daily rate (ADR) of approximately $345.88 resulting in RevPAR of approximately $204.69.  This RevPAR result represents an approximate increase of 149% versus August 2020 and an approximate decrease of 12% versus August 2019.

Additionally, for the month of August, Hotel Net Income was $0.9 million. Comparable Hotel EBITDA for the month of August was $9.2 million, a 2% decrease versus August 2019’s Comparable Hotel EBITDA of $9.3 million.

“It is especially encouraging that all of our resorts and all but one of our urban properties had positive Hotel EBITDA for the month,” said Richard J. Stockton, Braemar’s President and Chief Executive Officer.  He added, “Some of our resorts continue to set records, with our Bardessono property achieving an ADR of over $1,350 for the month.”  He concluded, “We are closely monitoring the number of reported cases of COVID-19 and have been encouraged by what appears to be a flattening or declining daily case load globally.  Additionally, while the Caldor fire in Lake Tahoe is impacting lodging demand, it currently poses no physical threat to our property in the region, as it is located primarily south of Lake Tahoe.  Looking ahead, the September/October crush in Napa Valley is already solidifying a strong book of business, while our Park Hyatt Beaver Creek is benefiting from a strong pipeline of social groups and associations during the same time period.”
