The 403-room boutique hotel is ideally located at the very corner of work and play, Boston’s Financial District and historic Faneuil Hall, two of the largest demand generators in the city.

About The Dagny

The Dagny, initially known as the Public Services Building and later as the Batterymarch Building, was Boston’s largest office building and first Art Deco skyscraper when it was constructed in 1928. The building was designed by notable artist and architect Harold Field Kellogg, and it housed many prominent businesses during the 20th century. In 1995, the Boston Landmarks Commission designated the exterior of the Batterymarch Building be preserved because of stunning design and contribution to Boston’s architectural history. The structural steel and reinforced concrete frame are clad in over thirty shades of progressively lighter polychrome brick to emphasize the verticality of the structure while cast stone and decorative terra cotta elements adorn the entrances with symbols of America, the industrial age and local commerce. The building was converted to a hotel in 1998 as part of the preservation effort. The lobby ceiling still has the original goldleaf Art Deco mural of Atlas carrying the world on his shoulders with the skyline of the City of Boston appearing on the horizon.

This press release includes certain non-GAAP financial measures as defined under Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) rules. These measures are not in accordance with, or an alternative to, measures prepared in accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles, or GAAP, and may be different from non-GAAP measures used by other companies. In addition, these non-GAAP measures are not based on any comprehensive set of accounting rules or principles. Non-GAAP measures have limitations in that they do not reflect all of the amounts associated with the hotel’s results of operations determined in accordance with GAAP.

The Company has presented estimated hotel EBITDA and hotel net operating income because it believes these measures provide investors and analysts with an understanding of the hotel-level operating performance. These non-GAAP measures do not represent amounts available for management’s discretionary use, because of needed capital replacement or expansion, debt service obligations or other commitments and uncertainties, nor are they indicative of funds available to fund the Company’s cash needs, including its ability to make distributions. The Company’s presentation of the hotel’s estimated EBITDA and net operating income should not be considered as an alternative to net income (computed in accordance with GAAP) as an indicator of the hotel’s financial performance. The table above is a reconciliation of the hotel’s estimated EBITDA and net operating income calculations to net income in accordance with GAAP.  Any differences are a result of rounding.
