LEXINGTON, Ky., November 16, 2012—Officials of New Castle Hotels and Resorts, a leading hotel owner, operator and developer, today announced that Martin Rothchild, general manager of the 366-room Hilton Lexington/Downtown Hotel, has been appointed to the Board of Directors of the Convention and Visitors Bureau for Lexington, Ky.  He was nominated by Lexington Mayor Jim Gray.
