Pretty cheap. Decent dividend which will probably get bigger in a few years. Now's a good time to get in before the hotel industry fully recovers.
In fact, Pebblebrook currently sports a cheapish price-to-book of 1.2. That represents a discount to other hotel REITs like FelCor (7.3), Host Hotels (1.9), and Strategic Hotels (3.5)
Jon Bortz did his magic at laSalle. Now he has a new vehicle and they're buying hotels at distressed prices. When the hotel business bounces back, they'll be sitting very pretty ... assuming they have the discipline to not buy when prices inflate, as they always do toward the end of the cycle.
