 THE RITTENHOUSE WINS AAA FIVE DIAMOND AWARD FOR 1992
 PHILADELPHIA, Dec. 2 /PRNewswire/ -- The Rittenhouse Hotel &


Condominium Residences has been selected to receive the AAA Five Diamond Award for 1992.
 By winning this award, The Rittenhouse has joined the ranks of North America's outstanding hotels offering superior facilities, impeccable service and the very highest standards of hospitality.
 This is a significant honor, The Rittenhouse said. Only 49 hotels of 22,000 listed in the 1992 AAA Tour Books have this distinction.
 "The honor goes to our dedicated staff," said David G. Benton, vice president and general manager. "It is their commitment to this hotel and to the high standards of excellence that has earned us this award. We also feel proud of the honor we bring to the city of Philadelphia, especially since we are the only luxury hotel owned and operated by a Philadelphia company."
 Opened in 1989, the 98-room boutique hotel provides guests with unmatched services and conveniences and is prominently located on historic Rittenhouse Square. Long believed to be the most desirable neighborhood in the city, the Square is private and residential, yet adjacent to the business district. Guest rooms are the largest in Philadelphia and offer expansive views of Rittenhouse Square and city panorama.
 The Rittenhouse offers 24-hour room service, twice daily housekeeping service and full concierge and messenger services. Executive Chef Gary Coyle, formerly of New York's La Cote Basque restaurant, oversees cuisine in the hotel's four restaurants, catering and room service. The restaurants include: Restaurant 210, fine dining overlooking Rittenhouse Square; TreeTops, sun-filled neighborhood cafe; Boathouse Row Bar, clubby room with memorabilia from Philadelphia's historic boathouse row; and The Cassatt Tea Room and Lounge, with living room atmosphere and French doors opening onto a private garden.
 The Rittenhouse has a health club and spa, a ballroom, board rooms and a business center. Nan Duskin, Philadelphia's premier women's specialty store, is also located here.
 The Rittenhouse is a member of Preferred Hotels & Resorts Worldwide, an association of more than 80 of the finest independent luxury hotels and resorts throughout the world.
 The Rittenhouse Development Company is a joint venture of Amerimar Realty Company, a Philadelphia-based national real estate investment firm, and the General Electric Pension Trust.
