 RADISSON HOTELS INTERNATIONAL ACCELERATES INTERNATIONAL
 HOTEL INDUSTRY RATE WAR INTO CANADA
 Offering Discount of Two Canadian Dollars Equals
 One U.S. Dollar at Radisson Hotel in Montreal
 "Shades of Summer" Rates Available at All Other Radisson Locations
 MINNEAPOLIS, June 18 /PRNewswire/ -- Radisson Hotels International today expanded the hotel industry discounting which has followed the airline rate war by announcing deep discounts of approximately 45 percent off room rates at a premier Radisson Hotel in Montreal.
 The discounted room rate, available from June 22 through Sept. 7, 1992, is being offered at the 737-room Radisson Gouverneurs - Montreal. Under terms of the offer, one U.S. dollar equals two Canadian dollars. For example, a deluxe guest room with a normal rate of $145 Canadian is being offered for $72.50 U.S. Reservations must be booked in advanced of arrival as a limited number of rooms are available.
 Radisson previously announced a special 50 percent discount at eight Radisson Hotels in London as the rate war sweeping the nation's airline industry expanded into international routes.
 According to Juergen Bartels, president and CEO of Radisson's parent company, Carlson Hospitality Group, Inc., "We are continuing to dramatically discount our international hotel rates to encourage U.S. travelers to experience Radisson hotels in key global destinations. As a result of the airline rate wars, Americans have tickets in their hands. We want to offer these travelers the best price value for their summer lodging needs," said Bartels.
 Nine other Radisson Hotels in Canada are offering similar discounts with Radisson's fourth annual "Shades of Summer" discount rate promotion, available at every Radisson hotel around the world. In Canada, Shades of Summer rates begin as low as $65 and vary by location. Radisson Hotels in Canada are located in Toronto (Radisson Plaza Hotel Admiral, Radisson Hotel Toronto - Don Valley, Radisson Suite Hotel Toronto Airport); Edmonton; Winnipeg; St. John's; London; Ottawa; and Quebec City.
 Summer travel is expected to be particularly heavy to the city of Montreal which is celebrating its 350th anniversary this summer with a multitude of activities. The Radisson Gouverneurs - Montreal is one of the key hospitality facilities in downtown Montreal, located near the Old City, with direct access to the underground city and subway. It is located only five minutes from the city's convention center and primary shopping and entertainment districts.
 Special amenities include a full spa with sauna, heated indoor pool and Nautilus fitness center. The Radisson Gouverneurs - Montreal features the Chez Antoine bistro-grill and lounge located in the lobby area and the Tour de Ville, a beautiful glass-enclosed revolving restaurant and bar on the 29th and 30th floors of the hotel; the only revolving restaurant in Montreal.
 In the United States and Canada, reservations can be made by calling 800-333-3333 or through a travel agent.
 Radisson Hotels International, one of America's fastest-growing upscale hotel companies, has more than 280 locations in 25 countries worldwide. Radisson is adding one new location every 10 days in Europe, Eastern Europe, Canada, Mexico, the Far East, Australia, the Caribbean and the United States.
