The Ventura Beach Marriott is thanking its lucky Star after readers of the local newspaper praised the hotel in the city of Ventura as being the best in West Ventura County.

The Marriott has just been honored as “The 2013 Readers’ Choice Winner” in the West County Hotel category of the 18th annual Ventura County Star survey. The Ventura Beach hotel’s 18 meeting rooms also were acknowledged for being a 2013 West County Favorite in the banquet hall category.

More than 134,650 votes were cast in 128 categories recognizing some of the best restaurants and businesses in east and west Ventura County. The west includes Camarillo, Somis, Oxnard, Port Hueneme, Ventura, Oak View, Ojai, Santa Paula, Filmore and Piru, while the east consists of Newbury Park, Thousand Oaks, Westlake Village, Agoura Hills, Simi Valley and Moorpark. Businesses that garnered the most online votes during a three-week period in January and February were recognized as winners, while the top five establishments receiving the next highest counts were presented as favorites in the special May 5, 2013, edition of the newspaper and its website.

We will continue to strive to maintain those high standards and remain the best hotel Ventura County West has to offer.”
