performed by Kramer Levin for and on behalf of the Committee for the period commencing April 1, 2021 through and including June 30, 2021 (the “Compensation Period”), and for reimbursement of its actual and necessary expenses incurred during the Compensation Period, pursuant to sections 330 and 331 of title 11 of the United States Code (the “Bankruptcy Code”), Rule 2016 of the Federal Rules of Bankruptcy Procedure (the “Bankruptcy Rules”), Rule 2016-2 of the Local Rules of Bankruptcy Practice and Procedure for the United States Bankruptcy Court of the District of Delaware (the “Local Rules”), the Guidelines for Reviewing Applications for Compensation and Reimbursement of Expenses Filed under 11 U.S.C. § 330 by Attorneys in Larger Chapter 11 Cases, effective November 1, 2013 (the “U.S. Trustee Guidelines”), and the Order Appointing Fee Examiner and Establishing Related Procedures of the Review of Fee Applications of Professionals [Dkt. No. 513] (the “Fee Examiner Order”). In support of this Application, Kramer Levin represents as follows: JURISDICTION 1. The Court has jurisdiction over this Application pursuant to 28 U.S.C. §§ 157 and 1334. Venue is proper in this district pursuant to 28 U.S.C. §§ 1408 and 1409. This matter is a core proceeding within the meaning of 28 U.S.C. § 157(b)(2). 2. The statutory predicates for the relief sought herein are sections 330 and 331 of the Bankruptcy Code. PRELIMINARY STATEMENT 3. Since its appointment, the Committee continues to play an active and important role in these Chapter 11 Cases, and with its efforts during the Compensation Period, has focused on, inter alia: (1) participating in the process relating to, and reviewing and negotiating numerous matters related to the sale of the Debtors’ assets, (2) analyzing and conducting legal research

9

regarding various issues relevant to these Debtors’ estates and their unsecured creditors, and (3) coordinating with various unsecured creditors, including the agent for the prepetition lenders, concerning numerous matters in these cases. 4. The efforts of the Committee, occurring over the period of time represented by the Compensation Period, required appropriate resources of Kramer Levin for the benefit of the estates and commensurate with the size and complexity of these cases. Kramer Levin participated in numerous negotiations with interested parties, researched relevant legal and factual issues involved, and advised the Committee on options and solutions to matters impacting these estates. Kramer Levin has coordinated with the Debtors’ advisors and other key constituents in these cases (including the agent for the prepetition lenders) to reach consensual resolution of matters (where appropriate) and thereby minimize the cost of litigation over potential disputes. In addition, Kramer Levin worked diligently to ensure that the Committee was appropriately informed of all case updates – either through weekly Committee calls or through frequent, and at times daily, e-mail reports to the Committee. 5. Accordingly, Kramer Levin respectfully submits that its services during the Compensation Period warrant approval of its requested fees and expenses. SUMMARY OF PROFESSIONAL COMPENSATION AND REIMBURSEMENT OF EXPENSES REQUESTED 6. This Application has been prepared in accordance with the U.S. Trustee Guidelines, and the Interim Compensation Order (collectively with the U.S. Trustee Guidelines, the “Guidelines”). Pursuant to the Guidelines, a certification of Adam C. Rogoff (“Rogoff Certification”) regarding compliance with the same is attached as Exhibit 1 hereto. 7. Kramer Levin seeks interim allowance of compensation for professional services performed during the Compensation Period in the amount of $1,730,063.00 and for reimbursement

10

of expenses incurred in connection with the rendition of such services in the amount of $33,574.66. During the Compensation Period, Kramer Levin’s attorneys and paraprofessionals expended a total of 1,646.20 hours in connection with the necessary services performed. 8. There is no agreement or understanding between Kramer Levin and any other person, other than members of the firm, for the sharing of compensation to be received for services rendered in these Chapter 11 Cases. 9. The fees charged by Kramer Levin in these Chapter 11 Cases are billed in accordance with its existing billing rates and procedures set forth in the Application of the Official Committee of Unsecured Creditors, Pursuant to Sections 328 and 1103 of the Bankruptcy Code and Federal Rule of Bankruptcy Procedure 2014 for an Order Approving the Retention and Employment of Kramer Levin Naftalis & Frankel LLP as Co-Counsel to the Creditors’ Committee Nunc Pro Tunc to February 5, 2021 [Dkt. No. 303] (the “Retention Application”). 10. During the Compensation Period, Kramer Levin exercised its billing discretion and, as discussed in more detail below, voluntarily wrote off fees and expenses. Kramer Levin’s write-offs of fees and expenses resulted in savings to the Debtors’ estates during the Compensation Period of $190,366.97. 11. A budget and staffing plan for the Compensation Period is attached hereto as Exhibit 2 and includes a comparison to actual amounts. During the Compensation Period, Kramer Levin’s fees were approximately $18,436 below the budgeted amount. 12. Kramer Levin’s rates in these Chapter 11 Cases are consistent with the rates charged by Kramer Levin to its non-bankruptcy clients. These rates are similar to the customary compensation charged by comparably skilled practitioners in comparable non-bankruptcy and bankruptcy cases in a competitive national legal market. Pursuant to the Guidelines, Exhibit 3

11

discloses the blended hourly rates for all non-bankruptcy timekeepers in the New York office of Kramer Levin and the blended hourly rates for timekeepers who billed to the Committee during the Compensation Period. 13. As required by the U.S. Trustee Guidelines, annexed hereto as Exhibit 4 is a schedule setting forth all Kramer Levin professionals and paraprofessionals who performed services in these Chapter 11 Cases during the Compensation Period, the capacities in which such individuals are employed by Kramer Levin, the hourly billing rates of such individuals, and the aggregate number of hours expended and fees billed by such individuals. 14. As required by the U.S. Trustee Guidelines, annexed hereto as Exhibit 5 is a summary of Kramer Levin’s time billed during the Compensation Period, broken down by project categories, as hereinafter described. Annexed hereto as Exhibit 6 is Kramer Levin’s time detail for the Compensation Period. 15. Annexed hereto as Exhibit 7 is a schedule specifying the categories of expenses for which Kramer Levin is seeking reimbursement and the total amount for each expense category for the Compensation Period. 16. On June 3, 2021, Kramer Levin filed the Third Monthly Fee Application of Kramer Levin Naftalis & Frankel LLP, Co-Counsel to the Official Committee of Unsecured Creditors, for the period of April 1, 2021 through April 30, 2021 [Dkt. No. 826] (the “Third Monthly Fee Application”) seeking fees in the total amount of $504,438.00 and expenses in the total amount of $26,315.17.

The Monthly Fee Applications contain detailed time logs describing the actual and necessary services provided by Kramer Levin during the Compensation Period, as well as other detailed information required to be included in fee applications. The Monthly Fee Applications are incorporated herein by reference. 18. Prior to filing this Application, Kramer Levin provided the Committee with a copy of the Application. The Committee has not objected to the requested amount. BACKGROUND 19. On January 18, 2021 (the “Petition Date”), each of the Debtors, with the exception of Eagle Hospitality Real Estate Investment Trust (“EH-REIT”) commenced a voluntary case under chapter 11 of the Bankruptcy Code in this Court. On January 27, 2021, EH-REIT filed a voluntary petition for relief under chapter 11 of the Bankruptcy Code, and on January 28, 2021, the Court entered an order directing joint administration of this case along with those of the initial Debtors. The Debtors are authorized to operate their businesses and manage their properties as debtors in possession pursuant to sections 1107(a) and 1108 of the Bankruptcy Code. No trustee or examiner has been appointed in these Chapter 11 Cases 20. On February 4, 2021, United States Trustee for the District of Delaware (the “U.S. Trustee”), pursuant to sections 1102(a) and (b) of Title 11 of the Bankruptcy Code, appointed the

13

Committee, and the Committee was reconstituted on February 18, 2021. The members of the Committee are: (i) Crestline Hotels & Resorts, LLC, (ii) Holiday Inn Club Vacations Inc., (iii) Hotelier Management Services, LLC, (iv) Marriott International, Inc., and (v) Holiday Hospitality Franchising, LLC [Dkt. No. 243]. 21. At a meeting held on February 5, 2021, the Committee, among other things, voted to retain Kramer Levin as its counsel and soon thereafter Morris James LLP was selected to serve as Delaware co-counsel and conflicts counsel. 22. On February 26, 2021, Kramer Levin filed its Retention Application. On March 23, 2021, the Court entered the Order Authorizing and Approving the Employment of Kramer Levin Naftalis & Frankel LLP as Counsel to the Official Committee of Unsecured Creditors [Dkt. No. 486] (the “Retention Order”). 23. On March 26, 2021, the Court entered the Fee Examiner Order appointing David M. Klauder, Esq. of Bielli & Klauder, LLC, as the fee examiner (the “Fee Examiner”) to provide assistance to the Court related to professional fee and expense analysis and review. SUMMARY OF LEGAL SERVICES RENDERED 24. As summarized herein, Kramer Levin and the Committee’s other professionals were required to expend substantial time and effort during the Compensation Period assisting the Committee in the fulfilment of its statutory duties and responsibilities. The following summary is not a detailed description of the work performed, as the day-to-day services and the time expended in performing such services are fully set forth in Exhibit 6. Rather, the following summary highlights certain areas in which services were rendered to the Committee and identifies some of the issues to which Kramer Levin devoted time and effort during the Compensation Period.

14

25. The summary is divided according to the project billing codes, which were created by Kramer Levin to best reflect the categories of tasks that it was required to perform in connection with these Chapter 11 Cases. Nevertheless, under the circumstances, and given the interconnectedness of the issues in these Chapter 11 Cases, certain of these categories may overlap with others.2 A. Case Administration Kramer Levin Billing Code: 1 (Fees: $6,042.00 / Hours Billed: 10.80) 26. Kramer Levin devoted time to various administrative tasks necessary to assist the Committee in efficiently fulfilling its statutory oversight role, including, but not limited to: (a) maintaining a detailed work-in-progress report detailing the status of current pending items and work streams; (b) attending internal organizational meetings; (c) monitoring and updating the case calendar with critical dates and deadlines; (d) preparing materials for internal distribution; (e) obtaining filed pleadings and maintaining case folders of the same; (f) coordinating conferences and meetings with Committee members; and (g) routinely communicating and corresponding both internally and with Morris James LLP and/or Province, LLC (collectively, the “Committee Professionals”) regarding these items. 27. In performing the above tasks, to conserve costs, Kramer Levin utilized paraprofessionals whenever possible to perform non-legal administrative tasks. Such paraprofessional fees were incurred directly in connection with the administration of the case and were necessary and appropriate in connection with the Committee’s role in these Chapter 11 Cases. 2 The fees and hours for each matter listed below reflect the voluntary write-offs and reductions of the Monthly Fee Applications discussed above.

15

B. Committee Meetings and Communications Kramer Levin Billing Code: 2 (Fees: $218,612.00 / Hours Billed: 183.00) 28. During the Compensation Period, the Committee generally held Committee telephonic meetings on a frequent – and sometimes weekly – basis. The general purpose of meetings with the Committee was to keep Committee members informed of developments and current issues in these Chapter 11 Cases, and to discuss, analyze, and vote on Committee positions with respect to matters requiring the Committee’s input. Committee meetings required preparation by Kramer Levin professionals and typically lasted approximately one hour (or less where appropriate). 29. Committee meetings often required internal pre- and post-meeting conferences to prepare for Committee calls and/or to discuss follow-up items that arose on such calls.

STATEMENT OF KRAMER LEVIN 62. The foregoing professional services performed by Kramer Levin were appropriate and necessary for the effective administration of these Chapter 11 Cases. All services rendered were in the best interests of Committee, the Debtors and the Debtors’ estates. Compensation for the foregoing services is commensurate with the complexity, importance and nature of the problems, issues or tasks involved. The professional services were performed in an appropriately expeditious and efficient manner. 63. The majority of the services performed by Kramer Levin were rendered by Kramer Levin’s Corporate Restructuring and Bankruptcy Group. Kramer Levin has a prominent practice in this area and enjoys a national reputation for its expertise in financial reorganizations and restructurings. The attorneys at Kramer Levin have represented debtors or creditors’ committees in many chapter 11 cases. In addition, due to the facts and circumstances of these Chapter 11 Cases, attorneys from Kramer Levin’s litigation practice group, as well as attorneys in other specialized areas as necessary, were involved with Kramer Levin’s representation of the

25

Committee. Overall, Kramer Levin brings a particularly high level of skill and knowledge which has inured to the benefit of the Committee and all stakeholders. 64. The professional services performed by Kramer Levin on behalf of the Committee during the Compensation Period required an aggregate expenditure of 1,646.20 recorded hours by Kramer Levin’s partners, counsel, associates, law clerks and paraprofessionals. Of the aggregate time expended during the Compensation Period, 383.60 recorded hours were expended by partners, 278.70 recorded hours were expended by counsel, 923.80 recorded hours were expensed by associates, and 60.10 recorded hours were expended by paraprofessionals. 65. Kramer Levin’s 2021 hourly billing rates for attorneys working on these Chapter 11 Cases ranged from $615.00 to $1,575.00. For the Compensation Period, allowance of compensation in the amount requested will result in a total blended hourly billing rate (including paraprofessionals) of approximately $1,041.04. Such fees are reasonable relative to the customary compensation received by Kramer Levin from non-bankruptcy clients and by comparably skilled practitioners in comparable bankruptcy cases in a competitive national legal market. 66. As set forth in Exhibit 7 hereto, Kramer Levin has disbursed $33,574.66 as expenses incurred in providing professional services during the Compensation Period. Kramer Levin’s policies in reimbursement for expenses for late-working professionals are not applicable for the expenses incurred during the Compensation Period. 67. Pursuant to Local Rule 2016-2, Kramer Levin certifies that copying is charged at $0.10 per page for black and white copies and at $0.80 per page for color copies, which charges are reasonable and customary in the legal industry representing costs of copy materials, outside service costs, acquisition, maintenance, storage and operation of copy machines, printers and copy center, together with a margin for recovery of lost expenditures.

26

68. These charges are intended to cover Kramer Levin’s direct operating costs, which costs are not incorporated into Kramer Levin’s hourly billing rates. Only clients who actually use services of the types set forth in Exhibit 7 are separately charged for such services. 69. Furthermore, Kramer Levin voluntarily determined not to seek reimbursement for various other expenses typically paid by Kramer Levin’s other clients. In total, Kramer Levin’s requested expenses reflect a reduction of $739.97 in expenses incurred during the Compensation Period. 70. Kramer Levin made every effort to minimize its disbursements in these cases. The actual expenses incurred in providing professional services were absolutely necessary, reasonable, and justified under the circumstances to serve the needs of the Committee. THE BASIS FOR THE RELIEF REQUESTED 71. Section 331 of the Bankruptcy Code provides for interim compensation of professionals and incorporates the substantive standards of section 330 to govern the Court’s award of such compensation. 11 U.S.C. § 331. Section 330 provides that a court may award a professional employed under section 327 of the Bankruptcy Code “reasonable compensation for actual necessary services rendered . . . and reimbursement for actual, necessary expenses.” 11 U.S.C. § 330(a)(1). Section 330 also sets forth the criteria for the award of such compensation and reimbursement: In determining the amount of reasonable compensation to be awarded . . . , the court should consider the nature, the extent, and the value of such services, taking into account all relevant factors, including – A. the time spent on such services; B. the rates charged for such services; C. whether the services were necessary to the administration of, or beneficial at the time at which the service was rendered toward the completion of, a

27

case under this title; D. whether the services were performed within a reasonable amount of time commensurate with the complexity, importance, and nature of the problem, issue, or task addressed; E. with respect to a professional person, whether the person is board certified or otherwise has demonstrated skill and experience in the bankruptcy field; and F. whether the compensation is reasonable based on the customary compensation charged by comparably skilled practitioners in cases other than cases under this title. 11 U.S.C. § 330(a)(3). 72. Kramer Levin respectfully submits that pursuant the standards regularly applied to fee awards under sections 330 and 331 of the Bankruptcy Code, that the amount of compensation requested during the Compensation Period is “reasonable” considering the nature, extent and value of the professional services performed during the Chapter 11 Cases. Kramer Levin’s compliance with the Johnson factors is delineated below: a) The Time and Labor Required. The professional services rendered by Kramer Levin on behalf of the Committee have required the expenditure of substantial time and effort, as well as a high degree of professional competence and expertise. The fees sought in this Application reflect an aggregate of hours expended by Kramer Levin attorneys and paraprofessionals performing services necessary and beneficial to the estate for the Compensation Period. Work was carefully assigned to appropriate attorneys or paraprofessionals according to the experience and level of expertise required for each particular task and without unnecessary duplication. b) The Novelty and Difficulty of Questions. These Chapter 11 Cases are designated as “complex” cases and necessarily involved a significant number of novel or difficult issues. Kramer Levin believes that numerous issues in these cases have been complex and challenging. c) The Skill Required to Perform the Legal Services Properly. The professionals primarily working on this matter are specialists in bankruptcy and related areas of practice. Kramer Levin contends that professionals without such expertise would have expended many more hours addressing the issues raised in these Chapter 11 Cases thus far, with far less success.

28

d) The Preclusion of Other Employment by Applicant Due to Acceptance of the Case. The time demands of general representation of the Committee in these cases resulted in many of the Kramer Levin attorneys working either completely or almost completely full-time on this matter. While no large-scale reassignment of work has been required to properly represent the Committee, this representation did consume a significant amount of time and preclude attorneys from taking on additional work for other clients. e) The Customary Fee. The rates charged by Kramer Levin for these services are reasonable relative to rates charged by Kramer Levin to non-bankruptcy clients and other professionals of comparable skill and competence in New York City. Kramer Levin has diligently undertaken to minimize costs to the Debtors’ estates while still ensuring that the Committee receives the highest quality representation. f) Whether the Fee is Fixed or Contingent. Kramer Levin’s fees are neither fixed nor contingent other than on the contingency of allowance by the Court and availability of assets for payment. Fees are based on the actual total number of hours worked, less hours written off, plus actual expenses incurred. g) Time Limitations Imposed by Client or other Circumstances. The representation of a creditors’ committee in a chapter 11 case is inherently time sensitive, particularly a case such as this one in which time is of the essence. Kramer Levin was required to provide capable representation within the time limitations imposed by the Bankruptcy Code, the Bankruptcy Rules, the Local Rules, counsel for various parties-in-interest, and this Court. h) The Amount Involved and Results Obtained. Kramer Levin has assisted the Committee in all facets of these cases. Kramer Levin believes that the information contained herein and in the attached exhibits, as well as the record in these proceedings, support the reasonableness of its requested compensation. i) The Experience, Reputation and Ability of the Attorneys. Kramer Levin’s partners, counsel and associates have regularly appeared in significant representations over many years, including bankruptcy cases throughout the United States. j) The Undesirability of the Case. Kramer Levin has not found this case to be undesirable, but rather, considers the issues raised in this case to be interesting and of the type that Kramer Levin is well-suited to adequately address. k) Nature and Length of Professional Relationship. As noted in the Application, Kramer Levin began its representation of the Committee as of February 5, 2021. l) Awards in Similar Cases. Based on Kramer Levin’s experience, the fees requested herein are commensurate with fees allowed in proceedings of similar scope for the services rendered.

29

73. Based on an application of the above factors and its compliance with theGuidelines, Kramer Levin respectfully submits that approval of the compensation sought herein is warranted. STATEMENT PURSUANT TO APPENDIX B OF THE GUIDELINES 74. The following is provided in response to the request for additional information setforth in the Guidelines. a) Kramer Levin seeks reimbursement of fees and expenses that are permissible under therelevant rules, court orders, and Bankruptcy Code provisions. In addition, KramerLevin provided voluntary write-offs of both fees and expenses during theCompensation Period in its discretion. b) The fees and expenses sought in the Application are billed at rates customarilyemployed by Kramer Levin, and generally accepted by Kramer Levin’s clients. Noneof the professionals seeking compensation in the Application varied their hourly ratebased on the geographic location of the Debtors’ cases. c) This Application includes certain time (and fees) relating to preparing, reviewing orrevising fee statements to comply with the local bankruptcy rules and U.S. Trusteeguidelines. These fees are reflected in a portion of the amount requested in billing codenumber 20, Committee Professionals’ Fee Applications. Such time was necessary inorder to comply with applicable guidelines and the Interim Compensation Order and tofile monthly fee applications (which is a distinct requirement in bankruptcy matters). d) In connection with the preparation of its monthly invoices, Kramer Levin reviewed itsmonthly invoices at the time that they were filed for privilege and confidentiality. TheApplication includes fees incurred in conducting that review. NOTICE 75.
