Our Company

Host Hotels & Resorts, Inc. is a premier lodging real estate company. We own high quality lodging assets in prime urban, airport and resort/convention locations. Creating value through aggressive asset management and disciplined capital allocation to generate superior performance, we endeavor to maximize shareholders' returns through a combination of dividends, growth in funds from operations and increasing asset value. Our strategy to accomplish this mission includes:
  • acquiring existing luxury and upper upscale full-service hotels as market conditions permit, including hotels operated by leading management companies which satisfy our investment criteria such as Marriott, Ritz-Carlton, Four Seasons, Hyatt, Hilton, W, Westin, Sheraton and Fairmont. Such acquisitions may be completed in various ways including transactions involving entities in which we are already a partner, public and private portfolio transactions, single asset transactions, and entering into joint ventures;
  • maximizing the value of our existing portfolio through aggressive asset management. We will work with the managers of our hotels to reduce operating costs and increase revenues, as well as conducting selective capital improvements and expansions designed to improve operations;
  • developing new luxury and upper upscale full-service hotels operated by leading management companies;
  • employing transaction structures which mitigate our risk; and
  • recycling capital through opportunistic asset dispositions and selective disposal of non-core assets, including older assets with significant capital needs, assets that are at a competitive risk given potential new supply, or assets in slower-growth markets.
We believe Host Hotels & Resorts, Inc. has the best assets, best management and best operators in the industry. Today, our portfolio consists of luxury and upper upscale hotels in difficult to duplicate downtown and resort locations. We continually strive to make the best better, investing in maintenance and property enhancements to meet the needs of our guests and drive future revenue growth. We are confident we can achieve our goal to be the premier lodging real estate company.  We look forward to delivering on that commitment in the months and years to come.
