PEB 5-Star Promise Statement

Pebblebrook Hotel Trust (“Pebblebrook”) strongly supports AHLA’s 5-Star Promise. Our pledge to AHLA complements the practices and policies in place by our hotel operating partners which are designed to ensure that the hotel employees at our owned hotels abide by the law, respect individual rights and do not tolerate sexual harassment of any kind at our properties. We have dedicated a significant amount of resources to assist our hotel operators with sexual harassment awareness training and avoidance programs, in addition to training and resources to prevent trafficking. We will continue to engage without hotel operators to provide the resources to further assist them in ensuring the safety of our hotel employees as well as our guests. Pebblebrook has committed to funding the purchase of hotel employee safety devices for use at all of our owned hotels by 2020.
