CHESAPEAKE BEACH, MD--(Marketwired - January 23, 2015) - The Chesapeake Beach Resort & Spa today announced that it has received multiple Best of the Bay awards from Bay Weekly Magazine.

Two more Best of the Bay awards went to the Chesapeake Beach Resort and Spa as a whole for Best Place to Pamper Yourself and Best Hotel.

Bay Weekly Magazine conducts the Best of the Bay Awards annually and announces winners at the end of each year from over 200 categories to which polled readers nominate their favorite businesses and services. 2014 marks the 17th year for Best of the Bay awards, and is the first time the Resort has won in so many categories. Bay Weekly Magazine states in their award announcement article that these awards are an "annual report on what and who gives their readers the most satisfaction in Chesapeake Country."

"Winning all of these Best of the Bay awards is a true source of pride for the entire team at the Chesapeake Beach Resort & Spa and we'd like to thank all of the Bay Weekly readers who took the time to nominate us," said the Resort's Owner Gerald Donovan. "There is no greater seal of approval than being recognized by one's customers. Every accolade and award we earn is a remarkable vote of confidence to our business and our continued commitment to excellence."

The Chesapeake Beach Resort & Spa has enjoyed a long history of customer service and evolution. During the past 68 years the original Rod 'N' Reel Restaurant and Marina have grown to include a waterfront hotel and full service spa, a second marina, two more waterfront restaurants, meeting rooms, waterfront ballrooms and Wedding Dome, and now the South Beach Waters Edge, a new beach front wedding and events venue. The Resort is an ideal location for waterfront weddings, corporate events and retreats. Amusements today at the Resort include bingo, gaming, charter fishing and other water sports, special weekend packages for all ages and beach side musical entertainment. Famous for being the Charter Fishing Capital of Maryland since 1946, the Resort also boasts two marinas, The Rod 'N' Reel Dock and Marina West.
