- Revenue per available room (RevPAR) for the fourth quarter for hotels owned and
operating as of December 31, 2005 increased 0.8% to $58.63 from last year’s $58.19. The increase in RevPAR was the result of a 3.8% increase in average daily room rate to $97.96 and a 1.9 point decrease in occupancy to 59.8%.

- The Company’s net income attributable to common shareholders for the fourth
quarter of 2005
totaled $6.3 million, or $0.35 per fully-diluted share, compared with the same
period last year
when net loss totaled $4.8 million, or $0.27 per share.

- Funds from operations attributable to common shareholders (FFO) for the fourth
quarter totaled
$82,000, or $0.00 per fully diluted share, a decrease from fourth-quarter 2004 FFO
of $0.7 million,
or $0.04 per share.  Primary contributors to the decrease in FFO included a $0.8
million decline in
contribution from hotel operations as a result of lower levels of business
interruption recoveries
recorded and increasing insurance costs and a $0.4 million increase in corporate
general and
administrative expenses, all net of minority interest. 

- The Company’s EBITDA for the fourth quarter, including the Company’s share of
EBITDA from
unconsolidated joint venture subsidiaries, totaled $4.7 million, down from last
year’s fourth quarter
EBITDA of $6.0 million as the result of a $1.0 million decline in contribution from
hotel operations
combined with a $0.5 million increase in corporate general and administrative
expenses.  The EBITDA
change is not impacted by minority interest.  FFO and EBITDA are non-GAAP financial
measures that
should not be considered as alternatives to any measures of operating results under
GAAP.
