Choice Hotels Canada Honours its Top Performing Hotels
TORONTO, ONTARIO--( Feb. 22, 2011) - Choice Hotels Canada has honoured its top performing hotels with 2011 Gold and Platinum Hospitality Awards. A total of 9 hotels received Platinum awards and 19 received Gold awards. Over 290 Canadian hotels were eligible for the awards.
"These hotels demonstrate an exceptional focus on guest satisfaction and dedication to providing superior service," says Tim Oldfield, managing director, franchise performance for Choice Hotels Canada. "Gold Award winners are amongst the 10 per cent best-performing hotels within our system. Platinum winners are the best in the system, reflecting the top three percent of hotels throughout Canada. To receive a hospitality award is a clear example of hotel's dedication to operational excellence and their commitment to an exceptional guest experience."
Recipients were judged upon results of Choice Hotels Canada's comprehensive selection criteria, which included an evaluation of guest surveys (and their likelihood to recommend the property to friends and family), third-party quality assurance audits and their desire to meet guest needs.
