12 WASHINGTON, D.C. HOTELS AND RESTAURANTS RATED 'OUTSTANDING;' 1993 MOBIL TRAVEL GUIDE FOUR-STAR AWARDS ANNOUNCED

 FAIRFAX, Va., Jan. 12 /PRNewswire/ -- Twelve Washington, D.C. establishments have won the coveted 1993 Mobil Travel Guide Four-Star Award. The Four-Star Award signifies that a dining or lodging establishment meets the criteria to be judged "Outstanding -- worth a special trip."
 Washington's two newest Four-Star Award winners, listed in the Middle Atlantic edition of the Mobil Travel Guide, are: ANA Hotel and the Stouffer-Mayflower Hotel.
 The returning Four-Star winners are: Four Seasons Hotel, Le Lion D'Or Restaurant, Maison Blanche/Rive Gauche, Melrose Restaurant (Park Hyatt Hotel), Park Hyatt Hotel, The Carlton Hotel, The Ritz-Carlton Hotel, The Willard Room Restaurant (Willard Inter-Continental Hotel), Watergate Hotel and the Willard Inter-Continental Hotel.
 "Only 361 establishments received Four Stars from the Mobil Travel Guide for 1993," said Ruth Walker, Mobil Travel Guide Manager. "They are an elite group -- the top two percent of more than 21,000 properties listed in the Mobil Travel Guide this year."
 Four Stars are not awarded lightly by the Guide. Lodgings must demonstrate style and personality, reflected in first-class accommodations. Superb maintenance and housekeeping should complement high-quality furnishings and accessories, thereby making the Four-Star establishment "worth a special trip." Four-Star resorts must have planned outdoor activities for guests of all ages.
 Four-Star restaurants provide each guest a special dining experience, characterized by an attractive and elegant setting, highly specialized professional service and exquisitely prepared and presented dishes. Each course reflects the expertise of a chef whose management of the kitchen demonstrates a commitment to creative cuisine and fine food.
 "The Four-Star rating is not automatically renewed each year," said Ms. Walker. "Four-Star properties undergo annual inspections and visits by senior evaluators to insure that the Four-Star criteria are consistently being met. Travelers visiting a Four-Star establishment in our nation's capital should expect an outstanding dining or lodging experience."
 The 1993 Mobil Travel Guide is the complete travel planner, featuring seven regional volumes covering the U.S. and parts of Canada. Published by Prentice Hall, each regional edition ($14 US) and the Frequent Traveler's Guide to Major Cities ($15 US) includes a $2 rebate coupon. The Frequent Traveler's Guide highlights the 51 most-visited cities in the U.S. Each book includes state, city and airport maps, things to see and do, travel tips, Fax numbers and much more. Mobil Travel Guide publications are available at Mobil service stations, bookstores, and major retailers.
