Ashford Hospitality Trust Inc. refinanced seven mortgage loans with existing outstanding balances totaling about $1.07 billion, bringing the company's refinancing activity since the start of 2017 to $3.4 billion.

The interest-only loans in the new financing together total about $1.27 billion and average approximately $211.7 million. Each has a two-year initial term with five one-year extension options, subject to certain conditions.
