SIX HOTELS AND RESTAURANTS NEW TO EXCLUSIVE LIST OF 1993 AAA FIVE DIAMOND ESTABLISHMENTS

 ORLANDO, Fla., Nov. 30 ~PRNewswire~ -- Travelers seeking the utmost in elegance and service have six new AAA Five Diamond lodgings and restaurants to enjoy, according to the American Automobile Association.
 The additions become the latest jewels in the exclusive crown of Five Diamond lodgings and restaurants in North America. The Five Diamond Award is AAA's highest rating, reserved for properties renowned for uncompromising standards of excellence in all aspects of operations.
 Accommodations added for 1993 are the Four Seasons, Newport Beach, Calif.; The Ritz-Carlton, Marina del Rey~Venice, Calif.; and the Four Seasons Resort, Charlestown, Nevis, in the Caribbean.
 There are 18 Five Diamond Restaurants for 1993, including three establishments new to the list: The Tack Room, Tucson, Ariz.; L'Orangerie, Los Angeles; and The White Barn Inn, Kennebunkport, Maine.
 "The Five Diamond Award denotes status and assures discriminating travelers that they can expect to be pampered with outstanding service by an experienced international staff and enjoy superb amenities and the finest cuisine," said Kris Krause, AAA Inspections director.
 "From the establishment's attention to detail to its overall flair and style, a Five Diamond designation signifies the property is the ultimate in all respects," Krause added.
 A formal presentation of the 1993 Five Diamond Awards will be held Feb. 5 at the Scottsdale Princess in Scottsdale, Ariz.
 Fewer than 1 percent of the 30,000 lodgings and restaurants listed in AAA's 1993 TourBooks received the Five Diamond rating.
 This year's winners include 39 lodgings in the United States and nine in Canada, Mexico and the Caribbean. California and Hawaii tied for the most Five Diamond lodgings, with five properties each. Vancouver, British Columbia, has three Five Diamond lodgings, more than any other city.
 The Five Diamond restaurants are all in the U.S. and include three in Dallas -- The French Room in the Adolphus, The Mansion on Turtle Creek Dining Room and Routh Street Cafe.
 Five establishments have demonstrated their on-going commitment to the finest service and operations by attaining the Five Diamond honor each year since it was first presented in 1977. They are: Marriott's Camelback Inn in Scottsdale, Ariz.; The Broadmoor, Colorado Springs, Colo.; C Lazy U Ranch, Granby, Colo.; The Greenbrier, White Sulphur Springs, W.Va.; and the Four Seasons Hotel, Vancouver.
 AAA lodgings and restaurants undergo a thorough annual inspection by full-time professionals and receive an overall rating of between one and five diamonds. Establishments considered for Five Diamond status receive more intensive review.
 Ratings appear next to lodging and restaurant listings in AAA TourBooks. More than 36 million TourBooks were distributed to AAA members last year.
 AAA is a not-for-profit federation of 145 motor clubs with more than 1,000 offices providing its more than 33.6 million members in the U.S. and Canada with travel, insurance, financial and auto-related services.
