Marshall Management Signs Three New Management Contracts; 
Co-invests in the Quality Inn Naval Base, Norfolk, Virginia

SALISBURY, Md., July 10, 2007 – Marshall Management, a leading mid-sized hotel management company, today announced that it has added three contracts to its management portfolio, bringing to seven the number of new contracts added year-to-date in 2007.  The new contracts include:  

Quality Inn Naval Base, Norfolk, Va. --The 120-room hotel, located at 8051 Hampton Boulevard, recently converted to the Quality Inn brand and will undergo a $600,000 renovation, including new soft goods and case goods.   Marshall Management also is a minority investor in the project.  “We have the financial strength to co-invest with owners when appropriate and continue to seek additional opportunities,” said Mike Marshall, president and CEO of Marshall Management.  

Holiday Inn Parkway East, Pittsburgh, Pa. --Located at 915 Brinton Road, the 177-room hotel focuses on transient and leisure travelers, as well as mid-sized meetings.  The hotel has more than 6,500 square feet of meeting space and can accommodate groups of more than 250 people. 

Riveredge Resort, Alexandria Bay, N.Y. -- Located on Alexandria Bay on the St. Laurence Seaway in the heart of the Thousand Islands, the full-service, first-class resort features 2,000 square feet of dock space, sightseeing cruises and guided fishing trips.  Surrounded by water on three sides, the 129-room property features the upscale Windows on the Bay restaurant and a lounge.  The hotel can accommodate groups of more than 300 people.

“We believe there is a significant opportunity to improve margins and profitability at these hotels,” Marshall said.  “In a buoyant economy, virtually all hotels show increased revenues, but too many operators do not bring enough of those improvements to the hotel’s bottom line.  We have developed proprietary management and marketing systems and programs that generate an immediate impact on a hotel’s performance.  All three hotels already have shown a substantial improvement in guest satisfaction and profitability. 

“This is our seventh contract this year and we are well on our way to exceed the 11 properties we added last year,” he said.  “We have an extremely active pipeline of properties in more than 11 states.  

“Concurrently, several of our existing owners have sold their hotels to harvest substantial profits from their initial investment,” he said.  “This natural, cyclical turnover in our portfolio allows us to continue to provide hands-on senior management attention to each property we operate.  We have the size and management depth to continue to generate superior returns yet small enough---a target portfolio size of 25 to 40 hotels—to know all of our properties in great detail.”  

Salisbury, Md.-based Marshall Management, founded in 1980, has special expertise in operating three- and four-star branded hotels and resorts, averaging 100 to 400 rooms, in urban and central business districts, suburban/drive-to and resort locations.  In addition, the company has a proven track record managing independent resort and unique urban properties.  The company has managed a wide array of leading hotel brands, including Hilton, Starwood, InterContinental Hotel Group, Choice and Wyndham.  Additional information about Marshall Management may be found at the company’s Web site:
