Choice Hotels International Honors Meyer Jabara Hotels

Hotel Development Company Wins Prestigious Premier Developer Award

ROCKVILLE, Md. - June 17, 2014 // PRNewswire // - Choice Hotels International, Inc. (NYSE: CHH), one of the world's leading hotel companies, named Meyer Jabara Hotels the winner of its 2014 Premier Developer Award, recognizing the firm's commitment to the highest levels of excellence in hotel development and its proven track record as an outstanding partner to Choice Hotels. This distinction was announced recently at the 60th annual Choice Hotels International Convention in Las Vegas.

"We are humbled and honored to receive this recognition. Four decades ago, Bill Meyer and I first went into business with one hotel. Now, as Meyer Jabara Hotels, we own and operate dozens of hotels accounting for more than 4,300 rooms across the eastern part of the United States. Much of that success has to do with the great partnership we have cultivated with Choice Hotels," said Richard G. Jabara, president and chief executive officer for Meyer Jabara Hotels. "Meyer Jabara and Choice Hotels share the same values in the way we do business, attracting the industry's top talent who help deliver memorable travel experiences for our guests."

The Premier Developer Award recognizes exceptional franchisees that develop properties with Choice Hotels, live up to the brand promise through excellent property performance, and are active in the franchise community. The award recognizes owners who are truly committed to the brand and who work closely with Choice Hotels to enhance the brand's success.

"We are thrilled to recognize Meyer Jabara Hotels for their exceptional work, and are proud to highlight them as a key member of the Choice family," said Stephen P. Joyce, president and chief executive officer for Choice Hotels. "Selected from all our properties and franchisees around the globe, first rate partners like Meyer Jabara Hotels are the reason why Choice Hotels has grown into one of the world's leading hotel companies."

Always looking through the eyes of the traveler, Meyer Jabara's highly distinctive hotels offer a differentiated and signature guest experience. From ghost tours to wine tastings, guests can become fully immersed in the destination when staying at a Meyer Jabara property.

Meyer Jabara Hotels was founded by Richard Jabara and William Meyer and has been successfully developing and operating hotels for nearly 40 years. The company currently operates hotels under licenses from Choice Hotels, other major brands and several independent boutique hotels. These independent properties include a trio of hotels in Baltimore – Admiral Fell Inn, Inn at Henderson's Wharf and the Pier 5 Hotel -- which are members of Choice Hotels' upscale Ascend Hotel Collection. Meyer Jabara Hotels has also partnered with Choice Hotels to build a brand new, upscale Cambria Hotel and Suites property. This property is scheduled to open in White Plains, New York later this year.
