March 2, 2007

NEWTON, Mass.--Hospitality Properties Trust (NYSE: HPT) today announced the pricing of $500 million of 3.80% Convertible Senior Notes due 2027. HPT also granted the initial purchasers an option to purchase up to an additional $75 million aggregate principal amount of notes to cover overallotments, if any. Closing of the sale of the notes is expected to occur on March 7, 2007. HPT expects to use the net proceeds from the sale of the notes to repay a portion of the debt incurred to fund its recently completed acquisition of TravelCenters of America, Inc.

Prior to March 15, 2026, upon the occurrence of specified events, the notes will be convertible at the option of the holder at an initial conversion rate of 19.8018 common shares per $1,000 principal amount of notes. The initial conversion price of $50.50 represents a 15.8% premium to yesterday's closing price of HPT's common shares of $43.61. On or after March 15, 2026, the notes will be convertible at any time prior to the second business day prior to maturity at the option of the holder. Upon conversion of notes by a holder, the holder will receive cash up to the principal amount of such notes and, with respect to the remainder, if any, of the conversion value in excess of such principal amount, cash or HPT common shares. The initial conversion rate is subject to adjustment in certain circumstances.

Prior to March 20, 2012, the notes will not be redeemable at HPT's option, except to preserve HPT's status as a REIT. On or after March 20, 2012, HPT may redeem all or a portion of the notes at a redemption price equal to the principal amount plus accrued and unpaid interest (including additional interest), if any.

Note holders may require HPT to repurchase all or a portion of the notes at a purchase price equal to the principal amount plus accrued and unpaid interest (including additional interest), if any, on the notes on March 20, 2012, March 15, 2017, and March 15, 2022, or upon the occurrence of certain change in control transactions prior to March 20, 2012.

The notes will be sold to qualified institutional buyers by means of a private offering memorandum in accordance with Rule 144A under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended. The notes and the HPT common shares that may be issuable upon conversion of the notes have not been registered under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, or any state securities laws, and unless so registered, may not be offered or sold in the United States except pursuant to an exemption from the registration requirements of the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, and applicable state laws.
