The Best 'Guest-Focused' Hotels Announced

Choice Hotels Canada honours 26 properties for raising standards on guest service

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - Feb. 23, 2012) - Looking for a hotel that will "wow" you with exceptional guest service? Look no further than Choice Hotels Canada, franchisor of popular brands like Comfort and Quality hotels, and their recently announced top 26 hospitality award winners.

Nine hotels received a Platinum Award for exceeding guest satisfaction standards and 17 achieved Gold Award status. For a complete list of winners, visit ChoiceHotels.ca

"Platinum award-winning hotels represent the top three percent of customer-focused properties within the Choice Canada system, and gold hotels fall within the top ten per cent - not an easy feat with over 300 locations across Canada," says Tim Oldfield, managing director of Choice Hotels Canada. "These hotels have stepped up to deliver superior service and represent the best of what our brands have to offer. I couldn't be more proud of this year's winners and strongly encourage Canadians to consider these fine properties when travelling this winter and throughout the year."

Recipients are selected from results of a comprehensive criteria review, which includes 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.
