					Rigrodsky & Long, P.A. Announces Investigation

WILMINGTON, Del.--(EON: Enhanced Online News)--Rigrodsky & Long, P.A. announces that it is investigating
potential claims against the board of directors of Sonesta International Hotels Corporation (“Sonesta” or the
“Company”) (Nasdaq: SNSTA) concerning possible breaches of fiduciary duty and other violations of law related to
the Company’s entry into an agreement to be acquired by Sonesta Acquisition Corporation (“SAC”), an affiliate of
Hospitality Properties Trust in a transaction with an approximate value of $174 million, including assumed
indebtedness and other liabilities.

international-hotels-corporation-snsta/.

Under the proposed agreement, SAC will acquire all of the outstanding shares of Sonesta for $31.00 per share in
cash.

The investigation concerns whether Sonesta’s board of directors adequately shopped the Company to obtain the
best price possible for Sonesta’s shareholders before entering into the agreement with SAC. Indeed, certain
members of the Sonnabend family holding approximately 55% of Sonesta’s outstanding shares have entered into
voting agreements pursuant to which they have agreed to support the merger.

If you own the common stock of Sonesta and purchased your shares before November 3, 2011, if you have
information or would like to learn more about these claims, or if you wish to discuss these matters or have any
questions concerning this announcement or your rights or interests with respect to these matters, please contact Seth
