Hotels to Convert to Prime Hotels & Resorts Brand

  Prime Hospitality Corp. , today announced that the Radisson Hotel &
Suites, Fairfield and the Radisson Suites, Secaucus have converted to its
new upscale, full-service hotel brand, PRIME Hotels and Resorts. The two
properties become the second and third hotels in the developing brand.
The hotels join the PRIME Hotel & Conference Center- Saratoga Springs, NY,
which inaugurated the brand in January 2003. Both hotels are strategically
located in thriving commercial/suburban northern New Jersey, serving
corporate and meeting customers. Both hotels are also centers for
community and family functions. Prime will continue to own and manage the
hotels.

“The projected return of the economy and the excellent location of these
hotels makes this the right time to step up into the new brand” says
Attilio Petrocelli, the Chairman and CEO of Prime Hospitality Corp. “Our
strategy to build a full-service hotel brand is blossoming, and it is
supported by the excellent service found in these hotels.” Prime plans to
convert 12 of their Wyndham Hotels—in cities such as San Diego,
Seattle, Phoenix, Salt Lake City and Atlanta—to the PRIME Hotels &
Resorts brand this spring, for a total of 15 hotels nationwide.

The Fairfield hotel, near the Willowbrook Mall on U. S. Highway 46,
minutes from the Newark Airport, features 140 rooms and 64 suites, with
over 15,000 square feet of meeting and banquet space. Riga’s is the
hotel’s popular, award-winning restaurant, featuring Northern Italian
cuisine. The Secaucus all-suites hotel, situated in the heart of the
Meadowlands’ sports and shopping district, features 151 two-room suites,

continental cuisine and its lounge features a DJ and dancing. Both hotels
feature electronic conveniences like high-speed Internet access and
lifestyle conveniences like indoor pools and fitness centers. The hotels
will participate in the Prime Rewards frequent traveler program.
