Islandia Hotel Earns Prestigious TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence

With Top-Notch Service and Beautiful Facilities, the Islandia Marriott Long Island Is a Favorite Among Travelers

ISLANDIA, NY--(Marketwired - Jun 19, 2014) - Going where no other has gone before is fine in the movies, but not so fine in real life. Luckily for travelers to Long Island, the way has been paved by countless businesspeople, families and vacationers, all of whom seem to share the same opinion about where to stay. Guests have posted time and again on TripAdvisor that the Islandia Marriott Long Island is their top choice. And now the hotel has its own Certificate of Excellence to prove it.

One of the many distinguishing factors of this Hauppauge hotel on Long Island is its service. Whether it's the hosts at the front desk, or the bartender at the lofty Atrium Lounge mixing a handcrafted cocktail, the staff members go above and beyond to welcome guests and anticipate their needs.

In this way, the TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence makes perfect sense. The award is bestowed only upon the top-performing 10 percent of hospitality businesses around the world. That means an organization has to maintain an overall rating of four stars (out of a possible five) or higher on the TripAdvisor website for at least 12 months. Businesses can be located anywhere in the world, and they can operate within any facet of the hospitality industry.

The number of reviews a property receives is also taken into account when determining the recipients for the Certificate of Excellence. And this Islandia hotel enjoys a vocal following. Guests not only appreciate its easy distance to the Long Island MacArthur Airport, for example, but also its 12,032 square feet of state-of-the-art meeting space and dedicated event staff; features that make the hotel an ideal choice among business travelers.

The details, however, are what really set the property apart from other hotels in Hauppauge, NY. Its recently renovated fitness center, for example, features modern cardiovascular equipment like bikes, treadmills and elliptical machines, while the heated indoor pool is ideal for families having fun or vacationers staying fit.

Perhaps most importantly, guests can be assured of a comfortable retreat when staying at the hotel's Hauppauge suites and guest rooms. Complimentary high-speed Internet access, movable desks and flat-screen televisions bedeck each space, while plush bedding translates to a good night's sleep. Rest and relaxation, after all, are the domain not of the groundbreaking traveler, but of the savvy one.
