Jeanine Rhea Appointed General Manager of the
New 90-room Hampton Inn & Suites
in Yuma, Arizona


Overland Park, Kan. – June 15, 2005 – True North Hotel Group, L.L.C. (TNHG) today announced that Jeanine Rhea has been appointed general manager of the new 90-room Hampton Inn & Suites slated to open in Yuma, Ariz., this September.  True North Hotel Group will manage and is an equity investor in the hotel, which is located at 1600 East 16th Street, adjacent to the new Yuma Palms Shopping Center.

Rhea, who has worked for Hilton-branded hotels for more than five years, most recently served as assistant general manager of the Hampton Inn & Suites in Beachwood, Ohio.  Before that, she served as general manager and front office manager, respectively, at the Hampton Inn in Marlborough, Mass., and the Embassy Suites, also in Marlborough.  

“Yuma is a growing city with so much to offer; I’m looking forward to getting involved in the community and to our hotel being part of that growth,” said Rhea.

Yuma’s new Hampton Inn & Suites hotel represents a popular new concept within the lodging industry: a hotel that combines traditional guest rooms with a significant number of larger suite rooms in a single property.  Hampton Inn & Suites hotels are designed to accommodate the lodging needs of both transient customers and guests staying three or more nights, including both business and leisure travelers.  

True North Hotel Group, a national hotel development and management company based in Overland Park, Kan., owns or manages more than 1,200 hotel rooms in seven states under the Marriott, Hilton, Cendant and Choice brands.  

Hampton is part of Hilton Hotels Corporation, recognized internationally as a preeminent hospitality company.
