An artists concept of the American Guesthouse hotel to be located in Schertz
SCHERTZ — American Guesthouse, a San Antonio-based bed-and-breakfast hotel chain, lias released a photo of the hotel planned for 12828 U.S. Highway 281 North in Schertz.
The intimate 125-room hotel will create an easy, at home atmosphere while offering many of the amenities of the larger luxury hotels, company officials said.
The rooms feature coffee makers, refrigerators and a second phone in the bath.
The atrium-style hotel features an indoor pool, exercise facilities, sauna and meeting rooms.
Because personal attention for guests is a primary concern at American Guesthouse, the general manager will actually reside in the hotel.
“We recognize when developing American Guesthouse that the Luxury and budget ends of the hotel industry are tending ti' be over-built, but that a gap existed in the mid-price market,'' Erich Ehrenstrasser. chairman and president of American Guesthouse Inc., said
“We therefore chose to build a smaller, more intimate hotel that offers luxury accomodations at reasonable prices.
The first American Guesthouse hotel opened last month in San Antonio.

partners to drop barriers
WASHINGTON (AP) - President Reagan threatened Saturday to retaliate against Japan and the European Common Market for unfair trading practices and ordered investigations of barriers against U.S. products in other nations.
Moving to blunt protectionist pressure in Congress, Reagan’s action was his strongest action yet in response to the nation’s worsening trade problems. But he .stopped far short of strict tariffs and quotas being weighed on Capitol Hill.
The president said that unless Japanese and Common Market barriers come down he will use his retaliatory powers “as a lever to open closed doors abroad.’’ But he said lie has not swerved from his free-trade principles.
“Our objective will always be to make world trading partnerships freer and fairer for all,” Reagan said in his regular Saturday radio broadcast from his Camp David. Md., retreat.
Reagan lashed out. as he has previously, against proposals to protect U.S. industry from competition by restricting imports.
“Instead of closing down markets at home and throwing Americans out (if work, w e should be .stepping up our efforts to open markets abroad and create American jobs by increasing exports," he said.
U.S. Trade Representative Clayton Yeutter called Reagan’s moves a “first step” toward an administration crackdown on barriers that added to a U.S. trade deficit that reached $123.3 billion in 1984 and is projected to hit $150 billion this year.
Reagan stressed that a flood of imports was to blame for the trade gap and that America’s share of the world export market has not dropped from around the 12 percent level in recent years.
The president and Yeutter said, however, that the nation must press trading partners to end unfair practices that discriminate against
Yeutter told a news briefing the administration would take further actions on the trade front within 30 days but declined to disclose specifics.
Reagan set a Dec. I deadline for an end to Japanese barriers against leather goods and those imposed by tile European Common Market to the import of cannedident also ordered Hive ligations by Yeutter’s office against potential unfair trade barriers by Japan against tobacco products. South Korea against insurance and Brazil against computers and related products.
Findings against those nations could lead to retaliatory action next year.
Reagan said he would wait to disclose exactly what retaliation he might order. Yeutter told a news briefing afterward it probably would lie quotas rather than the tariffs also legally available to the president.
Sen. John Danforth, R-Mo., chairman of the Senate Finance Committee's trade panel, said in a telephone interview following the broadcast that Reagan’s action was “fine as far as it goes” but suggested it did not go far enough. He called it too narrow to address Hie whole scope of the trading system.
In the Democratic response to Reagan’s weekly radio address, Rep. John P. Murtha of Pennsylvania also called for more action to stem the trade imbalance.
