BRUSSELS, November 16, 2010 - The Radisson Royal Hotel, Moscow, has received the Oscar of the travel
industry, as the World Travel Awards named the luxury landmark and former

The World Travel Awards are an international organization that stimulates
innovation and creativity, and encourages hotels to strive to provide
travellers with the best price-quality ratio, thus facilitating competition
in the sphere of tourism all over the world.

The World Travel Awards were founded in 1993 and are today considered the

recognised. The association's jury is made up of professionals who work
within the travel and tourism industry, including 183,000 tourist
organizations, travel agencies and transport companies from 160 countries.

"For us, luxury means attention to every detail, it means fulfilling all
our promises to our guests, and anticipating their every desire. It is above
all a general impression, the ambience of the hotel, and we are proud that
our efforts have been recognized with such an award," said Wolfgang Nitschke,
general manager of the Radisson Royal Hotel, Moscow.

This excellent award also recognizes the 3-years of assiduous work which
was completed to renovate the hotel and provides a note of thanks in
recognition to the motivation of the 1,500 staff members who have succeeded
in making the hotel the epitome of beauty, comfort and excellent service
among the world's best properties.

The elegant Radisson Royal Hotel, Moscow was built between 1953 and 1957

heart of the capital city and showcases the impressive styling of Soviet
Neo-classicism architecture. Soaring at 206 metres high, this hotel was the
largest European hotel of its day.
