Strong Global Expansion for Summit Hotels & Resorts™

Summit Hotels & Resorts has further strengthened its global portfolio and increased its capacity by 3,700 rooms, with the addition of a stunning new range of properties. A total of 14 new properties have been welcomed by Summit Hotels & Resorts, a brand of Preferred Hotel Group™, in the last six months alone. This expansion is significant because it establishes brand presence in Xian and California for the first time, substantially increases its foothold in Tokyo and designates the first Summit golf resort in Italy. The recent additions to the internationally acclaimed collection of properties include: Grand Pacific Le Daiba and Hotel Pacific Tokyo in Tokyo; The Grand Castle Hotel in Xian; Palmerston Etna Golf Resort & Spa in Sicily, Italy; myhotel Bloomsbury and myhotel Chelsea in London; Eden Hotel La Bergère in Maastricht; the Il Lugano in Fort Lauderdale; The Bel Air in Cancun, Mexico; Pheasant Run Resort & Spa in St Charles, Illinois; Westlake Village Inn in California; the Ambassador East in Chicago; the Casa Andina Private Collection Miraflores in Lima, Peru; The Parco dei Principi in Sorrento, Italy and The Legacy Hotel, Maryland, USA.

The addition of each of these distinctive properties demonstrates Summit Hotels & Resort's valuable role as a trusted brand for authentic travel experiences in the world's top destinations. As a business partner, Summit is also delivering great performance, with member hotels enjoying 20% growth in overall revenue through the brand in 2007. "We are seeing a distinct trend in Asia of hotels de-flagging from chains and becoming independents with Grand Castle and the Pacifics joining Summit. Hotel owners recognise that we can offer the technology solutions and sales and marketing expertise at more reasonable costs with the benefit of greater flexibility," said Mark Simmons, Area Managing Director, Asia
