(1) As of December 31, 2013, there were 224 North American (U.S. and Canada) open and operating TownePlace Suites by Marriott hotels; of these, 202 were franchised. There were 169 North American franchised hotels for which Smith Travel Research, Inc. data was available and which, as of December 31, 2013, were open and operating as franchised TownePlace Suites hotels at least 2 years and in the case of U.S. hotels, satisfied each of the following conditions (the “Conditions”). They did not undergo at any time in the preceding 2 years: (1) a rooms renovation that resulted in 5% or more of the total number of available rooms at such hotel being taken out of service for the year in which the renovation occurred; (2) a public space renovation that resulted in revenue displacement during the year in which such renovation occurred of 5% or more of the annual available room nights at the average daily rate of the most recent year prior to the renovation during which the hotel satisfied each of the Conditions; and (3) an expansion that resulted in an increase in revenues of 5% or more of the annual available room nights (before the expansion) at the average daily rate of the most recent year prior to the expansion during which the hotel satisfied each of the Conditions. Such hotels are referred to as “Smith Travel Included Franchised Hotels (STIFH).” For the 1 year period ended December 31, 2013, STIFH achieved an average occupancy rate of 72.0. The occupancy rate for STIFH ranged from a high of 90.4% to a low of 43.7% and 87 of STIFH (51%) achieved an average occupancy rate equal to or greater than 72.0%. The “average occupancy rate” is the total occupied rooms reported divided by total available rooms for the entire period. For the 1 year period ended December 31, 2013, STIFH achieved an average daily room rate of $92.38. The average daily room rate for STIFH ranged from a high of $162.17 to a low of $63.92 and 64 of STIFH (38%) achieved an average daily room rate equal to or greater than $92.38. The “average daily room rate” is the gross room sales divided by total occupied rooms. For the 1 year period ended December 31, 2013, STIFH achieved an average revenue per available room (“RevPAR”) of $66.49. The RevPAR of STIFH ranged from a high of $132.35 to a low of $36.92 and 70 of STIFH (41%) achieved or exceeded the average RevPAR of $66.49. The “average RevPAR” is the gross room sales divided by total available rooms. For the 1 year period ended December 31, 2013, STIFH achieved an average RevPAR Index of 108.8%. The RevPAR Index of STIFH ranged from a high of 232.3% to a low of 70.7% and 83 STIFH (49%) achieved an average RevPAR Index equal to or greater than 108.8%. “RevPAR Index” measures the fair share of the amount of available revenue a hotel (or hotel brand) receives relative to its competitive set (as defined by each hotel or brand) within a given market. For the 1 year period ending December 31, 2013, the North American Included Franchised Hotels (“NAIFH”) achieved an average extended-stay RevPAR (“ESRevPAR”) of $35.25. The ESRevPAR of the NAIFH ranged from a high of $92.94 to a low of $9.41 and 64 of the NAIFH (37.9%) achieved or exceeded the average ESRevPAR of $35.25. The average “extended-stay RevPAR” is calculated by multiplying the “average daily room rate for extended-stay rooms” by ESSOcc. The “average daily room rate for extended-stay rooms” is the gross room sales for extended-stay rooms (defined as any stay of five or more consecutive nights) divided by total occupied extended-stay rooms.

(3) See Item 19, Franchise Disclosure Document for TownePlace Suites by Marriott dated 3/31/2014. These statements relate to historical performance of franchised North American TownePlace Suites hotels that satisfy certain criteria as detailed above and are not guarantees of future performance. The figures above were based on hotels with at least two years of operating results. Hotels typically achieve lower results in their first year of operation. We do not claim or expect that you can or will expect to achieve the same average occupancy rate, average daily room rate, average RevPAR, RevPAR Index, reservations, Marriott Rewards room nights, ESOcc, or ESRevPAR, as these figures will vary from hotel to hotel and will depend upon many variables and factors, including size, location, seasonality, competition, general economic conditions, the length of time your hotel has been open or affiliated with us, the condition and attractiveness of the hotel, the perception of your hotel by customers utilizing our distribution channels, the reputation for quality of service at the hotel, how effectively you participate in our programs and market your affiliation with us, and the efficiency with which you operate your hotel. Operating results are subject to numerous risks and uncertainties, including economic conditions, public reaction to terrorist attacks and political unrest, supply and demand changes for hotel rooms, competitive conditions in the hospitality industry, relationships with customers and property owners, and the availability of capital.
