Hotel Management Contracts
SALISBURY, Md. - March 25, 2004 -- Marshall Management, Inc., a leading mid-sized management company, today announced that it has signed four new management agreements. It brings to five the number of new management contracts signed by the company in 2004. The hotels include a Wingate Inn and Holiday Inn Express Hotels & Suites in Destin, Fla., a Quality Inn in Gainesville, Fla., and a Comfort Suites in Laurel, Md.
"All four properties are in great locations and will benefit from our proprietary operating systems and marketing programs," said Michael Marshall, president of Marshall Management. "We continue to see tremendous interest on the part of owners who have lost patience with operators who have not performed well the past three years. Owners don't want to miss the upside opportunities that are beginning to appear as the economy recovers and are seeking experienced operators that can continue to control costs while maximizing profitability."
Marshall noted that the company has significantly enhanced its infrastructure to handle accelerated growth. "Our goal is to add five to 10 additional new contracts in 2004, and we obviously are well on our way. We continue to seek full-service and limited-service properties, in urban, suburban and resort settings."
The four properties are:
