>”While the Company’s elective default of the W San Diego mortgage was precipitated by a number of unique, market and hotel-specific factors, in the future other factors may lead the Company to pursue similar options with certain of its other mortgaged hotels. The Company believes such cases will be limited in number. For perspective, the average mortgage debt per room of the Company’s mortgaged hotels equates to approximately $129,500, approximately half that of the W San Diego.”
