 Important Message from the General Partner

Please be advised that the 2nd half of 2015 real estate taxes that were due to Maricopa County was May 1st. The payment was actually made on May 18th. A total of approximately $2,000 was accrued in late fees/interest penalties and Host will be responsible for paying that amount. You will not be responsible so please ignore any notices sent from Maricopa County. We apologize for this late payment. We experienced difficulty in connecting with the contact at Marriott who typically provides us with the consolidated bill to pay and by the time we made contact the deadline had already passed. Again, Host will be paying any interest/penalties associated with this late payment.

In addition, the final 2015 distribution check was mailed last week. You should be receiving the associated letter and year end statement that goes along with that check in this week‚s mailing.

 New Marriott Hotels - in a New York State of Mind

Like the Billie Joel song, with five new properties opening this year, Marriott is in a New York State of Mind. Among your new options when visiting the Empire State are the recently opened high-tech Renaissance Midtown South near Madison Square Garden; the Buffalo Marriott, located inside the new Harborcenter complex and, set to open in August, the Ithaca Marriott on the Commons, near the Campus of Cornell University.

Two classic upstate hotels have been completely restored. The original DeWitt Clinton Hotel, just steps away from the state Capitol, is now the Renaissance Albany Hotel. In August, the historic Hotel Syracuse will re-open as the Marriott Syracuse Downtown, elegantly restored with contemporary luxury. Numerous celebrities have visited the hotel since it opened in 1924 including John Kennedy, Bill Clinton, Elvis Presley, the Rolling Stones and John Lennon.
