                                                                                February 19, 1999
                                FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

LAUREL, MD -- pm Hospitality Strategies, Inc. announced today that it acquired management
of the recently renovated Quality Inn & Suites - Laurel featured in the January 20, 1999 issue of
HOTEL BUSINESS.

Quality Inn & Suites Laurel - located at One 2nd Street, Laurel, Maryland - reopened within the
past year following an aggressive redevelopment effort. This hotel is gaining impressive
recognition from the City of Laurel as an important centerpiece and catalyst for further
redevelopment in Old Town Laurel. The Quality Inn & Suites Laurel is a 3 star-level hotel.

Guests of this hotel will benefit directly by having Alexandria, Virginia based pm Hospitality
Strategies, Inc. [pmHS] as the new manager of Quality Inn & Suites. "As a comprehensive
hotel management company, pm Hospitality Strategies dedicates a professional staff to service
all operational issues," stated Greg Miller, Chief Operating Officer of pmHS. "We will pursue
the prestigious Gold Award from Choice Hotels International parent company of the Quality
Inns & Suites chain."

"Quality Inn & Suites already presents an attractive look and with the change to pmHS as
management, the hotel can add an 'aggressively hospitable attitude' to its list of advantages,"
remarked Steve Borger, of MBA Management, Inc., part of the ownership of the Quality Inn &
Suites. "We were very impressed by the pmHS HOSTsm program" [an acronym which stands for
'Honoring Outstanding Service Traditions']. This service-marked program was specially
designed by pmHS to deliver astounding guest service throughout each of its hotels. "With its
strong background in hotel management, we expect all management functions - marketing, sales,
accounting and human resources - to be greatly enhanced and more fully developed," stated
Steve Borger.

By virtue of improved customer service coupled with the capital investment already made to
completely renovate this hotel (interior & exterior), the Quality Inn & Suites Laurel presents an
excellent value.
