Six Pacifica Hotel Properties Named Top Performers By Lodging Hospitality

Santa Barbara, CA - Pacifica Hotel Company is proud to announce that six of its 22 hotels, including one in Los Angeles County (Redondo Beach), are on the prestigious list of the 75 Top Performers for 2007 selected by Lodging Hospitality magazine. The six top performing hotels are the Best Western Sunrise Hotel in Redondo Beach, CA; the Sandcastle Inn in Pismo Beach, CA; Best Western Blue Sea Lodge in San Diego, CA; The Empress Hotel in La Jolla, CA; Pacifica Suites in Santa Barbara, CA; and the Holiday Inn Express in San Luis Obispo, CA. The Top Performers are selected based on a calculation of total property sales divided by number of guest units to produce the annual sales per room.

"We are extremely proud to have six of our hotels named Top Performers by Lodging Hospitality," said Mike Barnard, president of Pacifica Hotel Company. "We focus on limited-service hotels in highly attractive locations, invest in tasteful renovations that enhance the guest's stay, and staff our properties with motivated managers who know how to deliver a pleasant, friendly experience to the customer every time they visit."

Pacifica Hotel Company's hotels are primarily located along the coast of California, with locations in Pismo Beach, Beverly Hills, Marina del Rey, San Diego and the San Francisco Bay Area, among others. The company also recently built and opened a Hilton Garden Inn in Florida and acquired the King Kamehameha's Kona Beach Resort on the Big Island of Hawaii.

Lodging Hospitality holds its Top Performers study every year. The role of the Top Performers study is not meant to be inclusive of all hotels in the industry. Rather, it was created to give hospitality professionals some benchmark data against which they can compare their own properties. The list includes hotels, motels and resorts of all sizes in all types of markets, enabling basic comparisons to a subscriber's hotel or portfolio of properties.
