CORONA, NY--(Marketwired - Apr 2, 2014) - Top honors have been awarded to a prominent LaGuardia Airport hotel in New York and its General Manager by the SpringHill Suites brand for outstanding performance in 2013.
Claiming two of the brand's top performance awards, the SpringHill Suites New York LaGuardia Airport hotel, managed by Urgo Hotels, has been honored with the "Gold Circle Hotel of the Year" Award and General Manager Sean Meade was named "Opening General Manager of the Year".
Properties chosen for the Gold Circle Hotel of the Year must fall within the top 10 percent of hotels among the SpringHill Suites brand based on an Overall Guest Satisfaction Survey Score and overall satisfaction for the period of Jan. 1 through Dec. 31, 2013. The hotel near Arthur Ashe Stadium, Citi Field and the U.S. Tennis Center tallied a score of 91.6 percent and was one of 13 hotels across the United States to be honored at the Gold level.
Presented only to the opening general manager that performs at the top level of service and leadership within the brand, Meade's award puts him in an elite field of general managers representing Marriott's SpringHill Suites. While a hotel's opening performance is measured in areas of RevPAR Index, Occupancy, GSS and opening readiness, qualifications for the top general manager's spot are also specific in requirements. Those chosen for the annual honor excel in the following areas:
• Overall hotel leadership
• Team building and team development
• Financial management
• Sales leadership
• Service leadership
• Community service
The Queens New York hotel is situated just a mile from LaGuardia Airport and provides guests with complimentary shuttle service upon request. This SpringHill Suites' exceptional service and spacious accommodations combined with its convenient location make it a top choice among hotels near Citi Field, home of the NY Mets; and Flushing Meadows - Corona Park, where the U.S. Tennis Center, Louis Armstrong Stadium and Flushing Meadows Golf Center draw thousands of sporting enthusiasts each year.
