 RADISSON ANNOUNCES OPENING OF 5-STAR HOTEL AT SEVILLA'S EXPO '92
 MINNEAPOLIS, May 7 /PRNewswire/ -- Radisson Hotels International today announced that one of Europe's most important new showcase hotels -- the Radisson Principe de Asturias Plaza Hotel Sevilla located at the site of the EXPO '92 World's Fair in Sevilla, Spain, will open its doors on Monday, May 11.
 This new five-star Radisson Plaza Hotel is an elegant 300-room facility built in honor of the heir to the throne of Spain, Don Felipe de Borbon - Principe de Asturias. It is a focal point of EXPO '92, the Universal Exposition which opened its doors to the world on April 20 and runs through Oct. 12.
 "It's Radisson's team effort and 'Yes I Can!' spirit that has allowed us to open this landmark hotel on time -- and most importantly, to serve visitors and guests at this historic world event," said John Norlander, president of Radisson Hotel Corp.
 "We're excited to announce that this premier new Radisson Plaza Hotel will serve hundreds of thousands of world travelers attending the festivities of EXPO '92," added Norlander. "We're bringing 300 new jobs to the local community as well."
 Radisson Hotels International is proud to have found a top caliber general manager who is a Sevillan native to serve as the key manager at the hotel. Manuel Martinez Cornejo has managed many of the city's premier hotels including the Alfonso XIII. "Cornejo will provide this project with a tremendous knowledge of the city of Sevilla," said Norlander. "He will insure that the hotel is operated in a manner that is customary to the Spanish way of life while delivering the high quality and service standards of Radisson Hotels International."
 The Radisson Plaza Hotel is situated on La Carduja Island and features views of the Guadalquivir River. It is the only hotel situated at the EXPO '92 site and is located near the Rowing Centre, Lakeside Promenade, Pavilions of the Autonomous Regions, Central Theatre and the Expo Cinema. The hotel includes a gourmet restaurant and lounge, meeting and banquet facilities, pool, spa, shops and beauty salon. The hotel is within a five-minute walk of downtown Sevilla via one of seven bridges connecting La Carduja Island, the site of EXPO '92, to the city.
