BETHESDA, Md.–Pebblebrook Hotel Trust today announced that it had executed a contract to sell the 416-room Sir Francis Drake in San Francisco, CA to a third party, which the Company expects will generate $157.6 million of proceeds after customary closing costs.

The net operating income capitalization rate is after an assumed annual capital reserve of 4.0 percent of total hotel revenues.
