Item 7.01. Regulation FD Disclosure.

On August 12, 2014, Inland American Real Estate Trust, Inc. (the "Company") mailed a letter to its stockholders announcing: (i) the filing of a preliminary registration statement on Form 10 with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the "SEC") outlining the details of a potential plan to spin-off a significant portion of the Company's lodging portfolio into a stand-alone, publicly-traded company to be called Xenia Hotels & Resorts, Inc.; (ii) the suspension of the Company's distribution reinvestment plan ("DRP"); and (iii) the continued suspension of the Company's share repurchase program ("SRP"). A copy of the letter to stockholders is attached hereto as Exhibit 99.1, and is incorporated herein by reference.

Pursuant to the rules and regulations of the SEC, the information in this Item 7.01 disclosure, including Exhibit 99.1, and the information set forth therein, is deemed to have been furnished to, and shall not be deemed to be "filed" with, the SEC.

Item 8.01. Other Events.



On August 11, 2014, the Company issued a press release announcing that a preliminary registration statement on Form 10 was filed with the SEC outlining the details of a potential plan to spin-off a significant portion of the Company's lodging portfolio into a stand-alone, publicly-traded company to be called Xenia Hotels & Resorts, Inc. A copy of the press release is attached hereto as Exhibit 99.2 and is incorporated herein by reference.

On August 12, 2014, the Company announced that, in connection with the possibility of a potential spin-off of Xenia Hotels & Resorts, Inc., the Company's board of directors, including all of the Company's independent directors, voted to suspend the Company's DRP until further notice. Further, while the Company's board of directors previously expected to be in a position to reinstate the SRP later this year, in light of recent developments related to the potential spin-off of Xenia Hotels & Resorts, Inc., the SRP will remain suspended. Beginning with the distributions previously authorized by the board of directors for the month of July 2014, which are payable in August 2014, any stockholder receiving their monthly distribution through the DRP will now receive a check or distribution statement showing their monthly distribution. The suspension of the DRP will not affect the payment of distributions to stockholders who previously received their distributions in cash.

Item 9.01. Financial Statements and Exhibits.
