FOUR SEASONS SELECTS SPRINT

 KANSAS CITY, Mo., Jan. 10 /PRNewswire/ -- Four Seasons Hotels and Resorts has selected Sprint (NYSE: FON) to provide a variety of telecommunications services to its properties over the next three years.
 The new contract is conservatively valued at more than $9 million. Among other things, it covers all direct-dial services from Four Seasons' properties as well as "800" service for its reservations center.
 "We were most impressed with the knowledge and commitment displayed by Sprint and its Hospitality Group," commented Mike Duwaji, vice president, controller of Four Seasons. "It's nice to know we're dealing with someone who has gone that extra step organizationally to pull together a dedicated hospitality work force."
 Four Seasons Hotels and Resorts, together with Regent International Hotels, is the world's largest operator of luxury hotels. The corporation currently operates 26 Four Seasons properties and 11 Regent hotels throughout the world.
 "We've always taken a total solution approach to the hospitality industry, and we think that shows up in our total customer service," said Richard Kalbrener, president of the Sprint Hospitality Group. "Hotels are not a 'typical' business; they have very special needs because they're trying to provide someone a home or office every night of the week. We have the knowledge to package -- and price -- the types of services that make that job a bit easier."
 Sprint is a diversified international telecommunications company with more than $10 billion in annual revenues and the United States' only nationwide all-digital, fiber-optic network. Its divisions provide global long distance voice, data and video products and services, local telephone services to more than 6 million subscriber lines in 19 states, and cellular operations that serve 42 metropolitan markets and more than 50 rural service areas.
