Endorsed Vendor for Hotel Guest Printing Services
Convenient In-room Web-based Printing Attractive
Amenity for Business Travelers

DALLAS, TX, June 22, 2004 - Choice Hotels International (NYSE:CHH) has endorsed PrinterOn as a remote guest printing service vendor for its Comfort Inn, Comfort Suites, Quality, Clarion, Sleep Inn, MainStay Suites, Econo Lodge and Rodeway Inn brand properties. The web-based remote printing service allows guests using a hotel's high-speed Internet service to print documents from their room to the hotel's existing printers in their business center or back office.

PrinterOn will be demonstrating the latest features of its guest printing service at the Hospitality Industry Technology Exposition and Conference (HITEC), Dallas Convention Center, June 22- 24, booth #1748.

Dan Rothfeld, senior vice president, Strategic Partnerships for Choice Hotels said that PrinterOn's Guest Printing service was selected because of its hardware independent design, competitive price point, ability to be installed remotely at any site, and the company's excellent customer and marketing support.

PrinterOn completed a successful pilot with Choice Hotels' Strategic Alliances team in May. PrinterOn's support team not only quickly installed the printing service, but also ensured that guest awareness for the service was in place and customized as necessary.

John Kaarid, PrinterOn's Director of Business Development, added, "PrinterOn places a high priority on customer usability and ensuring active use of the printing service by guests. We have seen tremendous growth in both overall printing usage as well as average usage per property in the hospitality space in the past year. We are pleased to have been selected as an endorsed printing services vendor to Choice Hotels International, one of the largest and most successful lodging franchisors in the world."

As an endorsed vendor, PrinterOn will enjoy increased support and distribution opportunities and access to a wide array of marketing venues within the Choice Hotels system of nearly 5,000 properties, including introducing its services to franchisees at the company's annual convention held each spring.
