The 412-room Boston Marriott Long Wharf in Massachusetts
Completes Four Year $30 Million Renovation

Boston - January 18, 2012
– Marriott Hotels & Resorts, the flagship brand of Marriott International (NYSE:MAR), and Sunstone Hotel Investors (NYSE: SHO) announced today the completion of a four year, $30 million full property renovation of the Boston Marriott Long Wharf. Anchoring this extensive renovation is the reinvented lobby, and the adjoining new Waterline restaurant and bar, where guests can work alone or in groups, eat, drink and socialize throughout the day and evening. This landmark hotel also now offers a new Harbor View Ballroom, an expanded health club and concierge lounge, and completely renovated meeting space, guest rooms and suites.

“We’re delighted to unveil the Boston Marriott Long Wharf’s stylish new look and many improvements throughout the hotel,” said General Manager Victor Aragona. “This renovation provides today’s performance-driven travelers with the most up-to-date and desirable ambiance and amenities.”

The internationally renowned architecture and interior design firm, BBG-BBGM, reimagined the 412-room Boston Marriott Long Wharf, showcasing picturesque waterfront views at every turn. All of the hotel’s guest rooms have been newly appointed with ergonomic furnishings, luxurious bedding, iPod clock radios and HD LCD televisions with split screen technology and plug-in connectivity for digital devices. Twelve Executive King Suites and two Luxury Waterfront Suites with private balconies have been added, while the hotel’s largest suite, the Long Wharf Suite, has been completely redesigned. An expanded Concierge Lounge provides comfortable dining and lounge seating, complimentary high speed wireless internet access, a laptop station and color printer.

On the lobby level, Waterline restaurant offers an inviting bar, communal dining table, cozy booths, and a private dining room. Waterline’s menu features quintessential American cocktails and classic New England fare with a focus on local ingredients. The restaurant also provides service to the reinvented lobby, where guests can catch up on work and emails, thanks to WiFi and plentiful electrical outlets.

The newly-added Harbor View Ballroom features floor-to-ceiling windows, a seasonal outdoor patio and panoramic views, making it a breathtaking backdrop for weddings and social events. All of the hotel’s pre-existing meeting spaces have been fully renovated, from the 8,200-square-foot Grand Ballroom, to the 5,750-square-foot Palm Garden with its soaring 55-foot atrium, to the 2,530-square-foot Commonwealth Ballroom, divisible into five break-out rooms. Now with the Harbor View Ballroom, this waterfront hotel provides 21,000 square feet of flexible, modern meeting space.

A significantly expanded 24-hour fitness center contains the latest equipment, including stationary bikes, Precor treadmills and elliptical trainers, all with 9-inch televisions. The hotel’s indoor pool and whirlpool area open onto a sundeck overlooking the water.

Located at 296 State Street, within short walking distance of Faneuil Hall, Quincy Market, and the Boston Aquarium, the Boston Marriott Long Wharf is also just minutes from Boston Common, the Boston Children’s Museum, and the TD Banknorth Garden. It offers easy access to Logan International Airport, Amtrak’s South Station, the MBTA’s subway and commuter rail and I-93.
