Although the Company believes that the expectations and assumptions reflected in the forward-looking statements are reasonable, these statements are not guarantees of future performance and involve certain risks, uncertainties and assumptions which are difficult to predict and many of which are beyond the Company's control.

Factors which could have a material adverse effect on the Company's future results, performance and achievements, include, but are not limited to: national and local economic and business conditions, including recessionary economic conditions existing over the last several years, that affect occupancy rates at the Company's hotels and the demand for hotel products and services; risks associated with the hotel industry, including competition, increases in wages, energy costs and other operating costs; the magnitude, sustainability and timing of the economic recovery in the hospitality industry and in the markets in which the Company operates; the availability and terms of financing and capital and the general volatility of the securities markets; risks associated with the level of the Company's indebtedness and its ability to meet covenants in its debt agreements and, if necessary, to refinance the maturity of such indebtedness or modify such debt agreements; management and performance of the Company's hotels; risks associated with the conflicts of interest of the Company's officers and directors; risks associated with redevelopment and repositioning projects, including delays and cost overruns; supply and demand for hotel rooms in the Company's current and proposed market areas; the Company's ability to acquire additional properties and the risk that potential acquisitions may not perform in accordance with expectations; the Company's ability to successfully expand into new markets; legislative/regulatory changes, including changes to laws governing taxation of REITs; the Company's ability to maintain its qualification as a REIT; and the Company's ability to maintain adequate insurance coverage. These risks and uncertainties are described in greater detail under "Risk Factors" in the Company's Annual Report on Form 10-K and subsequent reports filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission. The Company undertakes no obligation to and does not intend to publicly update or revise any forward-looking statement, whether as a result of new information, future events or otherwise.
