Traded in other countries:HMT.Germany,
Host Hotels & Resorts Inc was incorporated as a Maryland corporation in 1998 and operates as a self-managed and self-administered REIT. It owns properties and conducts operations through Host L.P., of which the company is the sole general partner and in which it holds approximately 98.7% of the partnership interests. The Company's consolidated lodging portfolio consists of 114 primarily luxury and upper-upscale hotels containing approximately 60,000 rooms, with the majority located in the United States, and with 15 of the properties located outside of the U.S. in Canada, New Zealand, Chile, Australia, Mexico and Brazil. The Company are also developing two hotels in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. In addition, it owns non-controlling interests in two international joint ventures: a joint venture in Europe, which owns 19 luxury and upper upscale hotels with approximately 6,400 rooms in France, Italy, Spain, The Netherlands, the United Kingdom, Belgium, Poland, Germany and Sweden; and a joint venture in Asia/Pacific, which owns one upscale hotel in Australia and minority interests in two operating hotels, one upscale and one midscale, in India and five additional hotels in India currently under development. They also hold non-controlling investments in the 255-room Hyatt Place Nashville Downtown in Tennessee, a 131-unit vacation ownership project under development adjacent to its Hyatt Regency Maui Resort & Spa and the Philadelphia Marriott Downtown in which they sold an 89% ownership interest in January 2014. The lodging industry in the United States consists of private and public entities that operate in an extremely diversified market under a variety of brand names. Most of its hotels operate in urban and resort markets either as luxury properties under such brand names as Fairmont, Four Seasons, Grand Hyatt, JW Marriott, Ritz-Carlton, St. Regis, The Luxury Collection and W, or as upper upscale properties under such brand names as Embassy Suites, Hilton, Hyatt, Le Méridien, Marriott Executive Apartments, Marriott Marquis, Marriott Suites, Pullman, Renaissance, Sheraton, Swissôtel and Westin. The Company compete with other REITs and other public and private investors for the acquisition of new properties and investment opportunities, both in domestic and international markets, as they attempt to position its portfolio to take advantage of changes in markets and travel patterns of its customers. As a REIT, the company is subject to various restrictions on the types of income it can earn, assets it can own and activities in which it can engage. Business activities that could be restricted by applicable REIT laws include, but are not limited to, activities such as developing alternative uses of real estate, including the development and/or sale of timeshare or condominium units.
