LaSalle To Buy Holiday Inn Wall Street

. October 14, 2008

NEW YORK, NY, September 29, 2006. LaSalle Hotel Properties has announced that it has executed a contract to acquire the Holiday Inn Wall Street for approximately $51.5 million.

The 138-room, urban, full-service hotel is located at 15 Gold Street in the heart of Manhattan's Financial District. The acquisition of the hotel is subject to customary and several non-customary closing conditions, including the departure of the existing restaurant tenant, and the Company makes no assurances that any of the closing conditions will be satisfied or that this acquisition will close on the terms negotiated or at all.

Assuming satisfaction of the closing conditions, the Company anticipates the closing will occur in the fourth quarter of 2006.

The aggregate consideration for the hotel, excluding expenses, consists of the assumption of an approximately $20.0 million first mortgage on the hotel and the issuance by the Company's operating partnership of approximately $3.0 million in class A common partnership units and approximately $28.5 million in aggregate liquidation value of series F preferred partnership units.

The series F preferred units will be a newly-created series of preferred units bearing a quarterly distribution on the liquidation value based on a floating rate equal to LIBOR plus 150 basis points.

Hotel Spa: Back to Nature

As the Wellness Industry continues to expand, hotel spas are also diversifying, placing a greater emphasis on overall well-being. For some spas, this means providing clients with all-inclusive packages that include fitness classes, healthy dining, and offsite leisure activities, in addition to their core services. For example, spas near ski resorts are offering packages that include lift passes, pre-ski yoga sessions, after-ski dinners and spa treatments. Other spas are offering packages that include massages, saunas, mineral baths, hot springs, and recreational hiking and snowmobile activities. These kinds of spa offerings are also part of a "Back to Nature" movement that encourages guests to get out and experience the healing qualities of nature. One such therapy is the Japanese practice known as "forest bathing" which has become popular with spas that are near wooded areas. This practice relies on the ancient power of a forest for promoting a sense of health and well-being. Other spas are incorporating precious metals and stones into their health and beauty treatments - such as silver, gold, pearls and amber. Silver ion baths relax the body and mind, reduce fatigue, and restore energy balance. Gold keeps skin radiant and can even treat various skin diseases and infections, due to its antibacterial qualities. Amber is used to calm the nervous system and to relieve stress. Other natural products and therapies that are increasingly in demand include sound therapy, cryotherapy, infra-red saunas, and even CBD oil, which is being used in massages, facials and foot scrubs, providing a new form of stress relief. The July issue of the Hotel Business Review will document these trends and other new developments, and report on how some hotel spas are integrating them into their operations.
