Best Guest Relations Program Award for Properties
with 150 rooms or Less
|Coronado, CA, April 14, 2004 – Glorietta Bay Inn announces today that
it has received a “Stars of the Industry” award for Best Guest Relations
Program for properties with 150 rooms or less from the American Hotel &
Lodging Association and Diners Club International.
The award was presented in Las Vegas today at the Las Vegas International
Hotel and Restaurant Show. Kim Akers, general manager, and Fe Herron,
housekeeping manager, were present to accept the award. Glorietta Bay Inn
also won this award in 2000 and 2001.
The 100-room Inn, designated a Coronado Historic Landmark in 1977, incorporates the former Edwardian mansion of sugar baron John D. Spreckels, who also built the Hotel del Coronado, located just across the street.
Spreckels' mansion, built in 1908, featured many innovations for its time, including electric lights and a tunnel connecting its water and electric systems to the generator at the Hotel del Coronado. The mansion also had a brass-cage elevator, marble staircase with padded handrail and skylights throughout. The home was built with reinforced steel and concrete, an earthquake precaution Spreckels insisted upon after living through the 1906 San Francisco earthquake.
