Okay. Thank you, Heidi. Good afternoon and welcome to our fourth quarter 2016 earnings call. This is Doug Vicari, Executive Vice President and CFO of Chesapeake. Also on the call this afternoon are Jim Francis, our President and CEO; and Graham Wootten, our Chief Accounting Officer. As is our custom, I'll begin with a brief overview of our quarter, including a review of our consolidated results, our summary hotel operating performance, our financial position, and our 2017 outlook. After I conclude my commentary, Jim will provide greater detail on the performance of our hotel portfolio.

He will also provide some general thoughts on macro industry trends and more specifics regarding our outlook for our hotel portfolio for 2017. As a reminder, any statement we make this afternoon about future results and performance or plans and objectives are forward-looking. Actual results may vary as a result of factors, risks, and uncertainties over which we have no control. And with that housekeeping behind us, let me begin with a brief review of our highlights and consolidated performance for the quarter. So, for the fourth quarter, we reported total revenue of $145.1 million and net income available to common shareholders of $9.7 million or $0.16 per diluted share.

Our adjusted corporate EBITDA was $184.5 for the year and our adjusted funds from operations were $140.4 million or $2.39 per diluted share. Let me briefly review some of our key hotel operating statistics. So, for the quarter, our portfolio of 22 hotels produced a RevPAR of $174.56.
