Rodd Hotels & Resorts National Business of the Year

For Immediate Release - October 24, 2005

October 24, 2005 …Rodd Hotels & Resorts honored with the APR Media Ltd. Business of the Year Award of Excellence for multiple unit operation. The 2005 Awards for Tourism Excellence presented by the Globe and Mail were announced in Quebec City early this week in recognition for outstanding contributions to the Canadian tourism Industry.

John Cudmore, President and COO was on hand to receive the award and comments "Being nominated and recognized by your industry peers is, indeed, an honor we at Rodd Hotels and Resorts hold in the highest regard. We feel we are in fine company with past recipients of Fairmont Hotels and Resorts and West Jet."

He accepted the award on behalf of David Rodd, Chairman and CEO and his family, the management team of our 13 properties in Atlantic Canada and for the over 1000 employees that present the Rodd experience to their guests on a daily basis.

"Canada owes its tourism success to the people and organizations that have created some of the best products, services and experiences in the world," said Randy Williams, President and CEO of the Tourism Industry Association of Canada. "That success translates into jobs, regional economic development opportunities, tax revenues, and an enhanced quality of life for all Canadians. This awards program is an opportunity to give Canada's tourism industry the recognition so richly deserves."

Rodd Hotels and Resorts is Atlantic Canada's largest privately owned hotel chain with 13 locations throughout Prince Edward Island, Nova Scotia and New Brunswick.
