Press Release Summary: Reports from the Philippine Department of Tourism for 2007
showed the average hotel occupancy in Manila stood at 77.03%, a 4.25% increase from
the previous year. Although a small year on year up rise, it is still a positive
indication on the state of the hospitality business, and tourism in general

Press Release Body: Beth Collingz, PLC International Marketing Networks' director
for sales of the Lancaster Brand of Condotels in the Philippines said "There are
some 80 accredited hotels accredited with the Department of Tourism in Metro Manila
ranging from deluxe to economy classifications. However there is now an increase of
new condominium hotels in the Capital, an indicator that there are more travelers
that require staying in Manila for more than just a few days".

Many people ask me "what's the difference between a hotel and a condominium hotel?
Well, the latter is intended for the frequent traveler who checks in for an extended
period of time. Focused on the specific requirements of business travelers who need
to feel at home away from home, a condominium hotel or 'Condotel' as they are now
known, provide the luxury of a hotel and the convenience of one\'s own condominium.
The units in a condominium hotel can be purchased and buyers can live there full or
part time or as investment property and rent those out through the Condotel
management when they are not using their suites said Collingz.

Condo hotels or Condotels are perfect for those who frequent a given place other
than their own dwelling and can\'t be bothered with booking a hotel and packing a
luggage each time they visit.

Standing at 42 floors high, overlooking Wack Wack Golf & Country Club and the
skylines of Makati and Ortigas, a new condo hotel along Shaw Boulevard opened its
doors last December 27, 2007 to hotel guests, addressing the increasing demand of
travelers in Metro Manila.

Lancaster Suites Manila is the epitome of luxury and convenience. Each suite is
lavishly and beautifully appointed, designed with plush interiors constructed to
highest industry standards. Guest room amenities include a welcome drink and fruit
platter, complimentary breakfast and daily newspaper, satellite and cable
television, broadband internet connection, in-room safety deposit box and electronic
door lock system. Bathtubs are standard in all Condotel suites as are kitchen and
dining facilities.

In terms of service, "the Lancaster Suites Manila provides guests a new experience:
butler and laundry services, babysitting, concierge and airport transfer are all
available as are foreign currency exchange, 24-hour room service and security and
scheduled shuttle services to the Ortigas and Makati Central Business Districts"
said Collingz.

Lancaster Suites offers residents or guests alike a fitness center and spa, swimming
and whirl pools, a dining hall and music lounge, function and board rooms and a
cigar and wine bar, there\'s also a salon, a commercial arcade and a lobby caf. The
24-hour business center with complete office facilities (computers, laser printers,
