Financial Group Darthall B.V. 
Converts Seven Hotels in France to the Radisson SAS and Park Inn Brands 

Brussles, May 2004 As of June 1, 2004, Rezidor SAS Hospitality will manage seven hotels in France, acquired by the financial group Darthall B.V. through a 100 percent shareholding of the E.G.H. group, previously owned by the Partouche Group.  Rezidor SAS will manage the hotels through a long-term lease agreement.

The 245-room Le Méridien in Lyon and the 120-room Park Hôtel Aix-les-Bains will be re-branded Radisson SAS and renamed the Radisson SAS Hotel Lyon and the Radisson SAS Hotel Aix-les-Bains respectively.  The remainder of the properties, located in Lyon, Nancy, Macon, Orange and Arcachon, will be re-branded Park Inn.

The hotels have undergone renovations in recent years, collectively estimated at 11 million Euros (approx. $13 million U.S.). Rezidor SAS intends to make further investments, in particular in the Park Inn hotels, including the introduction of a new line of amenities conforming to brand standards.
