Meri Goldstein Joins The Hotel Group As
Director of Acquisitions and Business Development

Focus will be on growing THG portfolio via property acquisitions
and third-party management opportunities

Edmonds, Wash. — June 2, 2011 — The Hotel Group (THG), a nationally recognized Top 50 hotel company that currently manages and/or owns 25 properties representing 12 brands and one independent hotel across 10 states, announced that Georgia hotel veteran Meri Goldstein has joined the organization as Director of Acquisitions and Business Development. Goldstein will focus primarily on securing new acquisitions for THG's Opportunity Fund IV, and other capital partners as well as adding to the company's growing portfolio of third-party management opportunities.
Most recently, the Cornell University School of Hotel Administration graduate and former PKF Consulting advisor served as Manager of Strategic Investments for Noble Investment Group in Atlanta. In that role, Goldstein actively participated in all steps of the investment process; including underwriting, market research, due diligence, closings, and transitions for nearly $500 million worth of real estate transactions. As a Georgia resident, she presently serves as the Cornell Hotel Society Georgia Chapter President, and is a member of the Junior League of Atlanta.  
"It is truly a privilege to join an organization such as THG that attracts strong industry leaders and has a family culture as its core," Goldstein said. "The fact that THG has such a high average corporate tenure speaks volumes. I was drawn to the company's ability to generate maximum investment value for owners, and compelled by its willingness to create professional growth opportunities for its associates. THG is a leader in hotel ownership and management and is consistently successful in turning around underperforming properties and making them market leaders. I am proud to be working among the industry’s finest hotel executives."

Working under the direction of President & CEO, Douglas Dreher, Goldstein will operate from THG's regional office in Atlanta.
“While THG continues to grow exponentially -- with three deals in the pipeline -- Meri will be a tremendous asset to the business development team by identifying acquisition and third-party management opportunities for us," Dreher said. "With her experience and enthusiasm, Meri will position The Hotel Group for sustained, healthy growth in 2011 and beyond."
