Apple REIT Nine’s acquisition strategy is solid. Acquire, primarily on an all-cash basis, income-producing
real estate that has the potential to grow in value over time. In 2008, we hand-selected a diverse selection of
- and Hilton
-branded limited-service and extended-stay hotels that we believe are ideally located
in stable or growing markets throughout the United States. As of February 28, 2009, our portfolio consisted
of 21 hotels, with 2,478 guestrooms in 11 states. Through an in-depth analysis of past and anticipated future
performance, market segment and potential capital expenditure needs, we strategically invested more than
$345 million in our 2008 acquisitions and have several properties under contract for future purchase. The
strength of our capital resources at a time of growing instability within our nation’s debt markets provided
excellent purchasing opportunities in the unique 2008 marketplace and we believe will continue to provide a
valuable advantage as we identify additional acquisitions to compliment our attractive portfolio of real estate.
