Stocks in this article: MPEL

City of Dreams' Crown Towers, on the other hand, is a recipient of this accolade for the first time and the award represents yet another step in the resort's progress towards becoming a premier leisure and entertainment destination in the Asian region. A hotel that truly understands the meaning of opulence, Crown Towers is a pure luxury and indulgence in the heart of City of Dreams, and is the first Cotai hotel brand to have ever been acknowledged by the Forbes institution for Five-Star service excellence.

The Forbes Travel Guide has defined the industry's highest standard for excellence in hospitality for over 50 years, providing one of the most comprehensive evaluation systems of hotels, restaurants and spas in the world. The Forbes Five-Star Hotel Awards are granted to hotels with exceptionally distinctive luxury environments that offer a consistently superlative, personalized service, and extensive amenities and treatments. Similarly, the Forbes Five-Star Spa Awards recognize exceptionally distinctive hotel spa experiences that meet an equivalent standard.

Mr. Lawrence Ho further explained, "Both Altira Macau and Crown Towers at City of Dreams, Macau represent Melco Crown Entertainment's in-depth understanding of the hospitality landscape in Asia and its commitment to elite tourism. The awards fortify our contribution to Macau's transformation into an international travel and leisure destination for the most discerning guests."

Over the course of 2012, both Altira Macau and City of Dreams have garnered multiple industry honors and forms of recognition. City of Dreams was awarded the "Integrated Resort of the Year" award at the 6 th International Gaming Awards. Its contemporary French restaurant, The Tasting Room, was honored with the prestigious Michelin star rating in the "Michelin Guide Hong Kong & Macau 2013" and ranked number five in "Hong Kong Tatler's Best Restaurants Guide" inaugural list of the 20 top restaurants in Hong Kong and Macau. City of Dreams' signature Chinese restaurant, Jade Dragon, was named "Best New Restaurant". Altira Macau's Aurora, Kira, Tenmasa and Ying restaurants were also recommended in the prestigious fine dining guide. Furthermore, Melco Crown Entertainment's next resort project in Cotai, Studio City, was also acknowledged as the "Best High-Yield Bond" at the 2012 Finance Asia Achievement Awards.
