Williamsburg, Virginia (PRWEB) April 24, 2009
Country Inn & Suites Williamsburg, 400 Bypass Road, was recently recognized by Carlson Hotels with two prestigious awards for outstanding dedication to guest satisfaction and brand engagement. The Gold President's Award, which honors the brand's top-performing hotels, was presented to Vice President of Asset and Revenue Management Kimberly Armstead during Carlson's 2009 Global Business Conference in Philadelphia. During the event, the Country Inn & Suites also received a Friends Hosting Friends Award for achieving guest satisfaction rankings within the top 25% of brand hotels.
"These awards reinforce our commitment to exceed our guests' expectations each day," said Armstead. The Country Inn & Suites satisfaction ratings are measured by an on-line customer service survey called Medallia.
