Apple Hospitality REIT provided an update on operations at its hotels in the path of Hurricane Harvey. The Company owns nine hotels that were in the primary path of the storm and the properties have sustained minimal damage to date. The hotels have been open since Hurricane Harvey made landfall and will continue to be a part of the area's extended recovery, working to support their communities and guests including local residents, insurance representatives, government officials and other relief supporters. The situation in each of the affected areas is evolving and there could be changes to each property's condition and operations. "Our thoughts and prayers go out to everyone and every community affected by Hurricane Harvey," commented Justin Knight, president and CEO. "We are incredibly proud of our industry in times such as these. Hilton, Marriott and the operating teams at our hotels have gone above and beyond to ensure that our guests and the associates at our hotels are safe and their basic needs are being met amid the devastation."
