SONESTA CELEBRATES UNITY AT INAUGURAL CONFERENCE

UNITY WAS THE theme at Sonesta International Hotels’ inaugural conference in Las Vegas. Sonesta essentially completed its integration with Red Lion Hotels
Corp. with the announcement of a unified loyalty program, Sonesta Travel Pass, and combined website.

Approximately 1,300 attendees, including franchisees, general managers of Sonesta’s corporate owned properties and employees, came to the conference and trade show
at The Venetian Resort Las Vegas. Along with keynote speakers and entertainment, the conference provided updates on the company’s status.

“My team and I have been looking forward to this moment for months to finally be with you, to talk with you, to listen to you and your guests and to show off a
little to you,” said John Murray, executive vice president for The RMR Group that owns Sonesta. “Because we really do have a lot to show off. We also have a lot
to celebrate. Today we’re here to celebrate the transformation of Sonesta and Red Lion’s histories into our future as one Sonesta.”
