Pebblebrook and SH Hotels Plan 2021 Opening of 1 Hotel San Francisco

USA, Bethesda, Maryland. March 30, 2020

Pebblebrook Hotel Trust (NYSE: PEB) (the "Company") and SH Hotels and Resorts today announced the planned transformation of Hotel Vitale to the sustainability-focused, mission-driven and luxury experiential 1 Hotel San Francisco, which is expected to open in 2021 following a full renovation and conversion into a flourishing urban retreat.

Located on the Embarcadero waterfront overlooking the Bay Bridge, and steps from the historic Ferry Building, the property has a great location and is currently home to the iconic Hotel Vitale. Following an extensive $25.0 million renovation, the hotel will relaunch as 1 Hotel San Francisco and will offer nature-inspired designs and environmentally-focused aesthetics throughout guestrooms and suites, public areas and meeting and event venues. The hotel will feature unique food and beverage offerings inspired by northern California's abundance of fresh, organic ingredients. 1 Hotel San Francisco will provide guests with a full-service spa and fitness center, connecting guests to a comprehensive wellness program in-line with 1 Hotels' core values. SH Hotels & Resorts, a subsidiary of Starwood Capital Group, will manage the property following the completion of the renovation and rebranding program.

"We are very excited to be the first to bring 1 Hotels to the city of San Francisco," said Jon E. Bortz, Chairman, President and Chief Executive Officer of Pebblebrook Hotel Trust. "The creative, distinctive and true to nature inspired 1 Hotel aesthetic will be a remarkable addition to our portfolio. The relaunch of Hotel Vitale to 1 Hotel San Francisco further demonstrates Pebblebrook's dedication to pursue sustainable initiatives that not only reduce the environmental impact of our hotels, but also connect our guests and team members to the communities around us. We look forward to guests and locals enjoying world-class, mission-driven, luxury experiences at the 1 Hotel San Francisco."

"1 Hotel San Francisco will be an exciting addition to the city's luxury hotel experience, as it is rooted in our mission of inspiring conscious consumption," said 1 Hotels Founder and CEO & Chairman of Starwood Capital Group Barry Sternlicht. "San Francisco, with its long-standing history as a leader for sustainable change and its focus on preserving nature, is a perfect fit for the 1 Hotels brand."

The Company acquired Hotel Vitale in 2018 and will assist with the transition and full conversion of the hotel property.

Hotel Spa: Back to Nature

As the Wellness Industry continues to expand, hotel spas are also diversifying, placing a greater emphasis on overall well-being. For some spas, this means providing clients with all-inclusive packages that include fitness classes, healthy dining, and offsite leisure activities, in addition to their core services. For example, spas near ski resorts are offering packages that include lift passes, pre-ski yoga sessions, after-ski dinners and spa treatments. Other spas are offering packages that include massages, saunas, mineral baths, hot springs, and recreational hiking and snowmobile activities. These kinds of spa offerings are also part of a "Back to Nature" movement that encourages guests to get out and experience the healing qualities of nature. One such therapy is the Japanese practice known as "forest bathing" which has become popular with spas that are near wooded areas. This practice relies on the ancient power of a forest for promoting a sense of health and well-being. Other spas are incorporating precious metals and stones into their health and beauty treatments - such as silver, gold, pearls and amber. Silver ion baths relax the body and mind, reduce fatigue, and restore energy balance. Gold keeps skin radiant and can even treat various skin diseases and infections, due to its antibacterial qualities. Amber is used to calm the nervous system and to relieve stress. Other natural products and therapies that are increasingly in demand include sound therapy, cryotherapy, infra-red saunas, and even CBD oil, which is being used in massages, facials and foot scrubs, providing a new form of stress relief. The July issue of the Hotel Business Review will document these trends and other new developments, and report on how some hotel spas are integrating them into their operations.
