Hunton & Williams LLP advised long-standing client Pebblebrook Hotel Trust (NYSE:PEB) in its $118 million sale of the Dumont NYC.

The transaction, which closed on Tuesday, June 20, 2017, follows the October 2016 dissolution of Pebblebrook’s partnership with Denihan Hospitality Group in the ownership of six Manhattan hotels. The October 2016 dissolution resulted in Pebblebrook owning 100 percent of the interests in two of the former partnership’s six hotels: the Manhattan NYC and the Dumont NYC.

The Dumont NYC is a 252-room hotel adjoined by a residential rental building with ground floor commercial space in the Murray Hill neighborhood of New York City.

Hunton & Williams’ legal team was led by New York partner Laurie A. Grasso and associate Douglas Hoffmann. The firm previously represented Pebblebrook on the $217.5 million sale of the Manhattan NYC, which closed in December of 2016.

“This sale of the Dumont NYC completes Pebblebrook’s exit from the New York market,” said Laurie A. Grasso, a partner at Hunton & Williams. “We are happy and honored to have assisted them in successfully carrying out this important strategic business plan,” said Grasso.

Hunton & Williams has a robust hospitality practice that has included the following transactions: Hersha Hospitality Trust in its $571.4 million, seven-hotel sale; American Realty Capital Hospitality Trust in its acquisition of a $300 million portfolio of 13 hotels; and Chatham Lodging Trust in their portfolio acquisition transactions.
