The Company’s ADR for its consolidated hotels increased by 2.3% to $161.58, while occupancy for its consolidated hotels decreased by 19 basis points to 80.56%.

Hotel EBITDA for the Company’s consolidated hotels grew approximately 11.7% or $3.9 million to $37.3 million for the quarter ended September 30, 2012 compared to the same period in 2011. Hotel EBITDA margins were 38.6% in the third quarter of 2012 compared to 41.7% in the same quarter of 2011. Hotel EBITDA margins decreased 1.1% year over year excluding the Rittenhouse Hotel in Philadelphia and the Sheraton Wilmington South in Delaware.
