Luxe Worldwide Hotels Adds Three U.S. Hotels

Luxe Worldwide Hotels’ President and
CEO, Efrem Harkham, announced today Luxe’s representation of three
remarkable stateside properties: San Diego County’s Lake San Marcos Resort
& Country Club, the Morongo Casino Resort and Spa in Cabazon, California,
and New Orleans, Louisiana’s historic Pontchartrain Hotel. When the 44-acre, 310-room Morongo Casino Resort and Spa opens in December
2004, it will be an enticing oasis of recreational gaming, entertainment
and relaxation. Developed by the Morongo Band of Mission Indians, the
contemporary-styled hotel and casino will have the largest gambling floor
west of Las Vegas.

Amenities include a luxury spa, business and fitness centers, concierge,
24-hour room service, free valet parking and spectacular dining and
nightclubbing. The Morongo Casino Resort and Spa is located at 49500
Seminole Drive in Cabazon, California, 90 minutes east of Los Angeles and
20 minutes west of Palm Springs.

The Lake San Marcos Resort & Country Club, on 250 secluded acres, offers
many recreational choices: two golf courses, heated pools, a private lake,
tennis and three restaurants. Each of the resort’s spacious 136 guest
rooms and four cottages comes with numerous amenities from private voice
mail to in-room coffee makers. To enjoy California’s best climate, each
room has a balcony or outdoor terrace; many have lakefront views. Discount
tickets are available to San Diego’s many theme parks. The resort is at
1025 La Bonita Drive, 35-miles from San Diego’s airport.

Located on New Orleans’ most stately avenue, the Pontchartrain Hotel is at
the heart of the city’s historic and genteel Garden District. Each of the
hotel’s 118 guestrooms and suites is exquisitely and individually
furnished. Added comforts and services include valet parking and wireless
Internet access in the hotel’s public areas including the locally popular
Bayou Bar. Outside the hotel’s front door there is easy access to the
city’s diversions, such as the world-famous French Quarter, via the St.
Charles Streetcar Line. The hotel is at 2031 St. Charles Avenue.
