Regarding the future expansion plan for the Alliance Hospitality portfolio of hotels, Rolf Tweeten, Chairman and CEO said, “There are many Third Party Management Companies in the hospitality industry whose growth strategy involves the addition of hotel properties by any means necessary, even if it involves the direct purchase or acquisition of management contracts from other entities. These companies can rapidly increase the number of properties managed, however they are unprepared for the rapid growth and cannot adequately provide support to the properties, thus negatively impacting the performance of the assets. At Alliance Hospitality, we carefully evaluate our ability to positively impact a property and form a comprehensive takeover plan if the hotel or hotels meet our criteria for smart portfolio growth. We take pride in our reputation as a successful hotel management company, and our results allow us to be selective in our opportunities for growth. Currently, we are in the process of transitioning into our portfolio two upper-upscale hotels and a separate conference center, and four additional hotels are scheduled to join the portfolio in the next 90 days.”
