(Edgar Glimpses Via Acquire Media NewsEdge) Item 4.01. Changes in Registrant's Certifying Accountants.

(a) Dismissal of Independent Registered Public Accounting Firm On April 14, 2014, the Board of Directors (the "Board") of BRE Select Hotels Corp (the "Company" or "Successor") approved the dismissal of Ernst & Young LLP ("EY") as the Company's independent registered public accounting firm, effective immediately. The Company's Board previously approved the appointment of EY as the Company's independent registered public accounting firm on May 17, 2013 following the acquisition of Apple REIT Six, Inc. ("Predecessor") which was completed on May 14, 2013.


The reports of EY on the Company's consolidated financial statements for the year ended December 31, 2013 (Successor) and for the period from January 1, 2013 through May 13, 2013 (Predecessor) and for the year ended December 31, 2012 (Predecessor) did not contain an adverse opinion or a disclaimer of opinion and were not qualified or modified as to uncertainty, audit scope, or accounting principles.

In connection with the audits of the Company's consolidated financial statements for the year ended December 31, 2013 (Successor) and for the period from January 1, 2013 through May 13, 2013 (Predecessor) and for the year ended December 31, 2012 (Predecessor), and in the subsequent interim period through April 14, 2014, (i) there were no disagreements (as defined in Item 304(a)(1)(iv) of Regulation S-K and the related instructions to this item) between the Company and EY on any matters of accounting principles or practices, financial statement disclosure, or auditing scope or procedures which, if not resolved to the satisfaction of EY, would have caused EY to make reference to the matter in their report, and (ii) there were no "reportable events" (as described in Item 304(a)(1)(v) of Regulation S-K).

The Company provided EY with a copy of this Form 8-K and requested EY to furnish it with a letter addressed to the Securities and Exchange Commission stating whether it agrees with the above statements. A copy of that letter, dated April 16, 2014, is filed as Exhibit 16.1 to this Form 8-K.
