The Company is a self-managed and self-administered REIT. A REIT is a legal entity that holds real estate interests and may reduce its federal taxable income to the extent it distributes taxable dividends to its shareholders. The Company currently pays dividends to common shareholders on a quarterly basis. The primary objectives of the Company are to provide income and long-term earnings growth to our shareholders through best in class asset and risk management by investing opportunistically in high-quality lodging properties.
LaSalle Hotel Properties is a group of professional hotel investors, asset managers and financial experts, not operators. The Company hand picks each addition to the portfolio to ensure consistency with stringent investment criteria and objectives. Our portfolio is in the forefront of design, quality and service enhancements providing each guest with an experience rather than just a place to sleep and meet.
