THE LANESBOROUGH WINS TOP TOURISM AWARD

 LONDON, Nov. 17 ~PRNewswire~ -- The Lanesborough, the newest je wel in the crown of Rosewood Hotels and Resorts, Inc., of Hyde Park Corner in London, has won the Hotel of the Year title from the English Tourist Board's 1992 England for Excellence Awards. A covered bronze "Leo" statuette was presented to The Lanesborough's managing director, Geoffrey Gelardi, on Nov. 10, at a glittering award ceremony.
 The hotel, which opened just 11 months ago, is one of 15 organization and individuals to receive the top national tourism trophies in various categories. The awards, recognized as the highest honor in the British tourism industry, are sponsored by major companies which share in the ETB's commitment to
success. It is unprecedented for the Hotel of the Year award to be bestowed upon a hotel that has been open for less than one year. "Rosewood has endeavored to create a hotel in London that represents the finest in luxury and service. Now, prior to our first anniversary, we are proud and greatly honored to receive this award," said Gelardi.
 The judges chose The Lanesborough because it has set new standards in the hotel industry. They applauded its bravery for maintaining its original concepts of luxury service, despite opening in a recession. These amenities include 24-hour personal butler service; personalized business cards and stationary; complementary suit~dress pressing and shoe shine upon arrival; in room fax, stereo, CD player, VCR and two- line telephone with private and operator-assisted numbers. The judges also felt The Lanesborough's imaginative renovation of the historic St. George's Hospital into a luxury hotel is an inspiration for the tourism industry as a whole.
 In addition to the Lanesborough, Dallas-based Rosewood Hotels & Resorts, Inc. owns and operates some of the world's top residential- style luxury hotels including The Mansion of Turtle Creek and Hotel Crescent Court, both in Dallas, and La Samanna on St. Martin. Rosewood co-manages Hotel Bel-Air in Los Angeles and is in a marketing agreement with the Seiyo Ginza, in Tokyo.
