SUNSTONE HOTEL INVESTORS REPORTS RESULTS FOR THIRD QUARTER 2021

Under Contract to Acquire the 85-Room Four Seasons Resort Napa Valley for $177.5 Million

Under Contract to Sell the 340-Room Embassy Suites La Jolla for $226.7 Million

Sold the 348-Room Renaissance Westchester for $18.8 Million

IRVINE, CA – November 4, 2021 – Sunstone Hotel Investors, Inc. (the “Company” or “Sunstone”) (NYSE: SHO), the owner of Long-Term Relevant Real Estate® in the hospitality sector, today announced results for the third quarter ended September 30, 2021.

Third Quarter 2021 Operational Results (as compared to Third Quarter 2020):

Net Loss: Net loss was $22.1 million as compared to $91.1 million.
16 Hotel Portfolio RevPAR: RevPAR at the comparable 16 hotels the Company owned during both 2021 and 2020, except the Renaissance Westchester which was sold in October 2021 (the “16 Hotel Portfolio”), increased 633.4% to $136.12. The average daily rate was $248.40 and occupancy was 54.8%.
17 Hotel Portfolio RevPAR: RevPAR at the 17 Hotels, which includes the 16 Hotel Portfolio and the Montage Healdsburg was $145.79, comprised of an average daily rate of $265.56 and occupancy of 54.9%.
Adjusted EBITDAre: Adjusted EBITDAre, excluding noncontrolling interest increased 197.7% to $35.4 million.
Adjusted FFO: Adjusted FFO attributable to common stockholders per diluted share increased 138.5% to $0.10.

Information regarding the non-GAAP financial measures disclosed in this release is provided below in “Non-GAAP Financial Measures.” Reconciliations of non-GAAP financial measures to the most comparable GAAP measure for each of the periods presented are included later in this release.

Douglas M. Pasquale, Interim Chief Executive Officer, stated, “We are pleased with our third quarter and year to date results, which meaningfully exceeded our revenue and profitability expectations despite some headwinds from the Delta variant. While leisure demand over the summer travel season was the strongest since the onset of the pandemic, our portfolio saw continued demand growth from all primary segments which added significantly to the quarter’s successes. While concerns related to the Delta variant have impacted short-term group demand, we are seeing a re-acceleration of both business transient and group bookings for the fourth quarter and into 2022.”

Mr. Pasquale continued, “During the quarter, we accelerated capital recycling initiatives and have recently completed or are under contract to complete several transactions that will better position the Company for future value creation. The disposition of the Renaissance Westchester is consistent with our strategy of divesting non-Long-Term Relevant Real Estate, while the sale of the Embassy Suites La Jolla is a great example of capitalizing on an opportunity to realize the value of well-located real estate at a sale price far in excess of the hotel's value. The opportunistic sale of the Embassy Suites La Jolla for $226.7 million, or approximately $667,000 per key, will further strengthen our balance sheet and provide capacity for future growth. The acquisition of Four Seasons Resort Napa Valley will increase our exposure to one of the strongest leisure and group markets, which, combined with Montage Healdsburg, will increase our ownership in the wine country to approximately 10% of our portfolio. Upon completion, we will own the two premiere hotels in the market and control approximately 32% of the luxury meeting space. I am very pleased with the progress and execution the team has achieved during my tenure as Interim CEO.”

(1)Operating statistics for the Montage Healdsburg, acquired on April 22, 2021, include prior ownership results obtained by the Company from the prior owner of the hotel during the due diligence period before the Company’s acquisition was completed. The Company performed a limited review of the information as part of its analysis of the acquisition. The newly-developed hotel opened in December 2020; therefore, there is no prior year information.
(2)The 16 Hotel Portfolio Adjusted EBITDAre Margins exclude prior year property tax adjustments, net.

Recent Developments

Preferred Stock Redemption: On August 12, 2021, the Company redeemed all 3,000,000 shares of its Series F Cumulative Redeemable Preferred Stock at a redemption price of $25.00 per share, plus accrued and unpaid dividends up to, but not including, the redemption date, using proceeds received from its July 16, 2021 issuance of 4,000,000 shares of its 5.70% Series I Cumulative Redeemable Preferred Stock (“Series I preferred stock”).

Renaissance Westchester: On October 15, 2021, the Company sold the 348-room Renaissance Westchester for a contractual sale price of $18.8 million. Net proceeds received from the sale of the hotel after the payment of costs arising from the transaction will be used to partially fund the acquisition of the Four Seasons Resort Napa Valley.

Four Seasons Resort Napa Valley: On October 7, 2021, the Company made a non-refundable earnest money deposit in connection with its agreement to acquire the fee-simple interest in the 85-room Four Seasons Resort Napa Valley. The newly-constructed luxury resort recently opened in October 2021, and will be acquired for a gross purchase price of $177.5 million. The acquisition includes nearly 4.5 acres of vineyards and the Elusa Winery along with the inventory of prior wine vintages. The acquisition is expected to be funded through a combination of cash on hand and from borrowings on the Company’s currently undrawn $500.0 million revolving credit facility. The Company expects to close the transaction in the fourth quarter of 2021, but can give no assurances that the acquisition will be completed. Upon stabilization, the Company expects the resort to generate a 6% to 7% net operating income yield. The acquisition of the Four Seasons Resort Napa Valley will further advance Sunstone’s strategy of owning a portfolio of Long-Term Relevant Real Estate®. For additional information on the acquisition, please refer to the Four Seasons Resort Napa Valley presentation located in the Investor Relations section of the Company’s website.

Embassy Suites La Jolla: On October 18, 2021, the Company entered into an agreement to sell the 340-room Embassy Suites La Jolla for a contractual sale price of $226.7 million or approximately $667,000 per key. On October 21, 2021, the purchaser’s earnest money deposit became non-refundable. The sale price represents a 22.3x multiple on 2019 Hotel Adjusted EBITDAre and a 4.0% cap rate on 2019 Hotel Net Operating Income. As part of the transaction, the buyer intends to assume the hotel’s existing $56.9 million mortgage loan. The disposition of the hotel demonstrates the ability to generate significant value from the ownership of Long-Term Relevant Real Estate®. The Company expects the sale to close during the fourth quarter of 2021, subject to customary closing conditions.

Hurricane Ida: On August 29, 2021, Hurricane Ida impacted the Company’s JW Marriott New Orleans and Hilton New Orleans St. Charles causing exterior damage and water infiltration at the hotels. The storm impacted the two hotels to varying degrees with the bulk of the damage incurred at the Hilton New Orleans St. Charles. The Company incurred $0.4 million of restoration expense during the third quarter of 2021 related to the JW Marriott New Orleans, and currently anticipates that the cost to restore damages at the hotel will not exceed the property’s insurance deductible. The Company incurred $1.2 million of restoration expense and recorded a $1.0 million impairment charge in the third quarter of 2021 as a result of the write-off of assets at the Hilton New Orleans St. Charles due to hurricane-related damage. The Company is working with its insurers to identify and settle a property damage claim at the Hilton New Orleans St. Charles and expects that losses to the Company will be mitigated by the hotel’s property insurance deductible of approximately $3.0 million. In addition, the Company may also pursue a business interruption insurance claim at the Hilton New Orleans St. Charles. The Company expects that restoration work on the hotels will continue into 2022 and that both hotels will remain in operation while the work is performed.

Capital Investments: The Company invested $25.1 million and $41.9 million into its portfolio during the third quarter and first nine months ended September 30, 2021, respectively. In 2021, the Company expects to invest approximately $70 million to $80 million.

Balance Sheet and Liquidity Update

As of September 30, 2021, the Company had $221.6 million of cash and cash equivalents, including restricted cash of $42.1 million, total assets of $3.0 billion, including $2.7 billion of net investments in hotel properties, total consolidated debt of $745.5 million and stockholders’ equity of $2.1 billion.

(1)October 2021 results are preliminary and may be adjusted during the Company’s month-end close process.
(2)Operating statistics for the 17 Hotel Portfolio include the Montage Healdsburg, acquired by the Company in April 2021. The newly-developed hotel opened in December 2020; therefore, there is no prior year information.

Due to continued uncertainty regarding the duration and extent of the COVID-19 pandemic, the Company cannot provide further assurances regarding the pandemic’s effect on the Company’s results, and the Company does not intend to provide further updates unless deemed appropriate.

The Company has suspended its quarterly common stock cash dividends.

Copies of these reports are available on our website at www.sunstonehotels.com and through the SEC’s Electronic Data Gathering Analysis and Retrieval System (“EDGAR”) at www.sec.gov.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

We present the following non-GAAP financial measures that we believe are useful to investors as key supplemental measures of our operating performance: earnings before interest expense, taxes, depreciation and amortization for real estate, or EBITDAre; Adjusted EBITDAre, excluding noncontrolling interest (as defined below); funds from operations attributable to common stockholders, or FFO attributable to common stockholders; Adjusted FFO attributable to common stockholders (as defined below); hotel Adjusted EBITDAre; and hotel Adjusted EBITDAre margins. These measures should not be considered in isolation or as a substitute for measures of performance in accordance with GAAP. In addition, our calculation of these measures may not be comparable to other companies that do not define such terms exactly the same as the Company. These non-GAAP measures are used in addition to and in conjunction with results presented in accordance with GAAP. They should not be considered as alternatives to net income (loss), cash flow from operations, or any other operating performance measure prescribed by GAAP. These non-GAAP financial measures reflect additional ways of viewing our operations that we believe, when viewed with our GAAP results and the reconciliations to the corresponding GAAP financial measures, provide a more complete understanding of factors and trends affecting our business than could be obtained absent this disclosure. We strongly encourage investors to review our financial information in its entirety and not to rely on a single financial measure.

We present EBITDAre in accordance with guidelines established by the National Association of Real Estate Investment Trusts (“NAREIT”), as defined in its September 2017 white paper “Earnings Before Interest, Taxes, Depreciation and Amortization for Real Estate.” We believe EBITDAre is a useful performance measure to help investors evaluate and compare the results of our operations from period to period in comparison to our peers. NAREIT defines EBITDAre as net income (calculated in accordance with GAAP) plus interest expense, income tax expense, depreciation and amortization, gains or losses on the disposition of depreciated property (including gains or losses on change in control), impairment write-downs of depreciated property and of investments in unconsolidated affiliates caused by a decrease in the value of depreciated property in the affiliate, and adjustments to reflect the entity’s share of EBITDAre of unconsolidated affiliates.

We make additional adjustments to EBITDAre when evaluating our performance because we believe that the exclusion of certain additional items described below provides useful information to investors regarding our operating performance, and that the presentation of Adjusted EBITDAre, excluding noncontrolling interest, when combined with the primary GAAP presentation of net income, is beneficial to an investor’s complete understanding of our operating performance. In addition, we use both EBITDAre and Adjusted EBITDAre, excluding noncontrolling interest as measures in determining the value of hotel acquisitions and dispositions.

We believe that the presentation of FFO attributable to common stockholders provides useful information to investors regarding our operating performance because it is a measure of our operations without regard to specified noncash items such as real estate depreciation and amortization, any real estate impairment loss and any gain or loss on sale of real estate assets, all of which are based on historical cost accounting and may be of lesser significance in evaluating our current performance. Our presentation of FFO attributable to common stockholders conforms to NAREIT’s definition of “FFO applicable to common shares.” Our presentation may not be comparable to FFO reported by other REITs that do not define the terms in accordance with the current NAREIT definition, or that interpret the current NAREIT definition differently than we do.

5


We also present Adjusted FFO attributable to common stockholders when evaluating our operating performance because we believe that the exclusion of certain additional items described below provides useful supplemental information to investors regarding our ongoing operating performance, and may facilitate comparisons of operating performance between periods and our peer companies.

We adjust EBITDAre and FFO attributable to common stockholders for the following items, which may occur in any period, and refer to these measures as either Adjusted EBITDAre, excluding noncontrolling interest or Adjusted FFO attributable to common stockholders:

Amortization of contract intangibles: we exclude the noncash amortization of the favorable management contract asset recorded in conjunction with our acquisition of the Hilton Garden Inn Chicago Downtown/Magnificent Mile, along with the unfavorable tenant lease contracts recorded in conjunction with our acquisitions of the Boston Park Plaza and the Hilton Garden Inn Chicago Downtown/Magnificent Mile. We exclude the noncash amortization of contract intangibles because it is based on historical cost accounting and is of lesser significance in evaluating our actual performance for the current period.

Gains or losses from debt transactions: we exclude the effect of finance charges and premiums associated with the extinguishment of debt, including the acceleration of deferred financing costs from the original issuance of the debt being redeemed or retired because, like interest expense, their removal helps investors evaluate and compare the results of our operations from period to period by removing the impact of our capital structure.

Acquisition costs: under GAAP, costs associated with acquisitions that meet the definition of a business are expensed in the year incurred. We exclude the effect of these costs because we believe they are not reflective of the ongoing performance of the Company or our hotels.

Cumulative effect of a change in accounting principle: from time to time, the FASB promulgates new accounting standards that require the consolidated statement of operations to reflect the cumulative effect of a change in accounting principle. We exclude these one-time adjustments, which include the accounting impact from prior periods, because they do not reflect our actual performance for that period.

Other adjustments: we exclude other adjustments that we believe are outside the ordinary course of business because we do not believe these costs reflect our actual performance for the period and/or the ongoing operations of our hotels. Such items may include: lawsuit settlement costs; prior year property tax assessments or credits; the write-off of development costs associated with abandoned projects; property-level restructuring, severance and management transition costs; debt resolution costs; lease terminations; property insurance proceeds or uninsured losses; and other nonrecurring identified adjustments.

In addition, to derive Adjusted EBITDAre, excluding noncontrolling interest we exclude the noncontrolling partner’s pro rata share of the net (income) loss allocated to the Hilton San Diego Bayfront partnership, as well as the noncontrolling partner’s pro rata share of any EBITDAre and Adjusted EBITDAre components. We also exclude the noncash expense incurred with the amortization of deferred stock compensation as this expense is based on historical stock prices at the date of grant to our corporate employees and does not reflect the underlying performance of our hotels. In addition, we exclude the amortization of our right-of-use assets and liabilities as these expenses are based on historical cost accounting and do not reflect the actual rent amounts due to the respective lessors or the underlying performance of our hotels. Additionally, we include an adjustment for the cash finance lease expense recorded on the building lease at the Hyatt Centric Chicago Magnificent Mile. We determined that the building lease is a finance lease, and, therefore, we include a portion of the lease payment each month in interest expense. We adjust EBITDAre for the finance lease in order to more accurately reflect the actual rent due to the hotel’s lessor in the current period, as well as the operating performance of the hotel. We also exclude the effect of gains and losses on the disposition of undepreciated assets because we believe that including them in Adjusted EBITDAre, excluding noncontrolling interest is not consistent with reflecting the ongoing performance of our assets.

To derive Adjusted FFO attributable to common stockholders, we also exclude the noncash interest on our derivatives and finance lease obligation, as we believe that these items are not reflective of our ongoing finance costs. Additionally, we exclude the noncontrolling partner’s pro rata share of any FFO adjustments related to our consolidated Hilton San Diego Bayfront partnership. We also exclude the real estate amortization of our right-of-use assets and liabilities, which includes the amortization of both our finance and operating lease intangibles (with the exception of our corporate operating lease), as these expenses are based on historical cost accounting and do not reflect the actual rent amounts due to the respective lessors or the underlying performance of our hotels. In addition, we exclude preferred stock redemption charges, changes to deferred tax assets, liabilities or valuation allowances, and income tax benefits or provisions associated with the application of net operating loss carryforwards, uncertain tax positions or with the sale of assets other than real estate investments.

In presenting hotel Adjusted EBITDAre and hotel Adjusted EBITDAre margins, miscellaneous non-hotel items have been excluded. We believe the calculation of hotel Adjusted EBITDAre results in a more accurate presentation of the hotel Adjusted EBITDAre margins for our hotels, and that these non-GAAP financial measures are useful to investors in evaluating our property-level operating performance.

Reconciliations of net loss to EBITDAre, Adjusted EBITDAre, excluding noncontrolling interest, FFO attributable to common stockholders, Adjusted FFO attributable to common stockholders, hotel Adjusted EBITDAre and hotel Adjusted EBITDAre margins are set forth in the following pages of this release.

About Sunstone

Sunstone Hotel Investors, Inc. (the “Company,” “we,” and “our”) (NYSE: SHO) is a lodging real estate investment trust (“REIT”) that as of November 4, 2021 has interests in 17 hotels comprised of 8,799 rooms, the majority of which are operated under nationally recognized brands. Sunstone’s business is to acquire, own, asset manage and renovate or reposition hotels that the Company considers to be Long-Term Relevant Real Estate®.

As demand for lodging generally fluctuates with the overall economy, the Company seeks to own Long-Term Relevant Real Estate® that will maintain a high appeal with lodging travelers over long periods of time and will generate superior economic earnings materially in excess of recurring capital requirements. Sunstone’s strategy is to maximize stockholder value through focused asset management and disciplined capital recycling, which is likely to include selective acquisitions and dispositions, while maintaining balance sheet flexibility and strength. Sunstone’s goal is to maintain appropriate leverage and financial flexibility to position the Company to create value throughout all phases of the operating and financial cycles.
