ATTORNEY GENERAL'S OFFICE ORDER LEADS TO REFUNDS FOR HOTELCO CUSTOMERS

 SEATTLE, Aug. 31 /PRNewswire/ -- The Attorney General of Washington announced today that refunds will be sent this week to consumers who purchased discount hotel certificates, but who were unable to use the coupons as they had been represented by a Bothell firm which marketed them.
 In addition, Laurence Harrison, president of Hotelco Inc. has assured the State Attorney General's Office that the firm will not misrepresent information on the availability of hotel accommodations in the future.
 The refunds, totaling about $3,500 will be mailed to about 50 customers who had filed complaints with the Attorney General's Office.
 The customers had purchased certificates from Hotelco between November of 1992 and April of this year, paying up to $55 for three days and two nights at hotels, most of which are in British Columbia. They complained they had not been informed of significant restrictions, or the difficulty of getting the accommodations they expected.
 Hotelco also agreed to make additional refunds within seven days of receiving any new complaints from consumers. Consumers may file complaints by writing or calling the Office of the Attorney General, Consumer Resource Center, 900 Fourth Ave., Ste. 2000, Seattle, WA 98164, or by calling toll-free 800-551-4636, or 206-464-6684.
