Urban Commons and Brighton Management Purchase the
101-room Le Rivage Hotel in Sacramento, California

LOS ANGELES, Dec. 17, 2012 -- Urban Commons , LLC, together with Brighton Management, announced today the purchase of the prestigious boutique, 4 Diamond, 101-room, Le Rivage Hotel in Sacramento. The Le Rivage Hotel will be the first purchase in the greater Sacramento area for both Companies. Urban Commons and Brighton have been in negotiations with various premier brands and have recently received approval to reflag the hotel into the Westin brand. The Companies, along with Westin, are excited to be working together for this conversion and plan to move quickly to get everything ready for its new rebranding in the upcoming weeks.

Urban Commons has been aggressively growing its portfolio particularly in the hospitality sector. With top management set in place, the Company has been able to seamlessly takeover hotels and quickly regenerates value by adding directly to their bottom line. Urban Commons targets distressed and/or bank-owned hotels, where they see the greatest growth potential and upside opportunity for their investors.

Brighton Management currently owns and operates hotels located primarily in the Southern California Counties of Los Angeles, Orange, and Ventura. Recently, Brighton has re-focused on building its portfolio by buying hotels at great values and expanding its reach beyond the Southern California region. As part of its strategic growth plan, Brighton continues to strengthen its market share by channeling traffic to its surrounding hotels and by having properties available at every price point in the market, resulting in increased revenue growth and net operating income in every segment of the market.
