 Apple REIT Six, Inc. Appoints White Lodging Services
to Manage Five East Coast Hotels
MERRILLVILLE, Ind., Aug. 24, 2005 - White Lodging Services, a rapidly growing hotel ownership, development and operating company, was recently awarded the management contract for five premium branded select service and extended stay hotels on the east coast from Apple REIT Six, Inc. Each of these hotels will be owned by Apple REIT Six, Inc. of Richmond, VA and managed by White Lodging Services of Merrillville, IN.
The multi-property agreement stems from an initial partnering of the two companies on the Boulder, CO Marriott, which Apple acquired in early May, and White Lodging has successfully managed since inception.  Apple elected to retain White Lodging for management of the award winning Boulder Marriott, and subsequently have signed them to manage the five additional, newly-constructed properties in their portfolio.
"The addition of these five hotels to our managed portfolio gives us an immediate presence in the northeast and supports our strategy of operating premium branded hotels in high barrier to entry markets," stated President & COO of Development and Asset Management, Deno Yiankes.
The five newly constructed hotels are all scheduled to open by September 1, 2005:
  •  104-room Homewood Suites by Hilton, Wallingford, CT; opened July 11
  •  123-room Homewood Suites by Hilton, Somerset, NJ
  •  96-room Residence Inn by Marriott, Hartford/Rocky Hill, CT
  •  123-room Residence Inn by Marriott, Mount Olive/International Trade Center, NJ
  •  119-room Courtyard by Marriott, Hartford/Farmington, CT
