Minneapolis, MN | May 13, 2009

In recognition of Asian American hoteliers and their contribution to the growth of the U.S. hotel industry, Carlson Hotels Worldwide presented a $50,000 donation to the Asian American Hotel Owners Association (AAHOA) at the organization's annual convention held last month in Washington, D.C.

This marks the 14th year Carlson has donated to the education fund that it helped establish in 1995, bringing the total contribution from Carlson Hotels to nearly $600,000. These funds are used to provide financial support to the educational seminars at AAHOA's regional conferences held year-round and also represent an important contribution for AAHOA youth educational classes directed toward future hoteliers.

"Carlson Hotels Worldwide and AAHOA share a dedication to service delivered with family values in mind.
