Exclusive Award Recognizes Property's Commitment to Excellence
VANCOUVER, BC -- (Marketwired) -- May 30, 2013 -- When it comes to the hospitality industry, one opinion matters more than anyone else's and that is the customer's. For this reason, TripAdvisor's prestigious Certificate of Excellence is an enviable achievement, as it is awarded only to those properties that earn consistently high marks among travellers. This year, the Residence Inn Vancouver Downtown earned this distinguished accolade.
"We are honoured to receive a Certificate of Excellence," says Suzanne Allemeier, General Manager. "Customer service is a top priority for Residence Inn Vancouver Downtown, and this award confirms we're living up to our valued guests' expectations."
TripAdvisor awards Certificates of Excellence only to the top-performing 10 percent of businesses worldwide. This translates to maintaining a rating of four or better (out of a possible five), being listed on TripAdvisor's website for at least 12 months and receiving a competitive number of reviews.
Considering the clean-lined comfort of the Residence Inn Vancouver Downtown, the recognition is hardly surprising. The hotel offers guests a wide variety of spacious suites and studios that include amenities like fully equipped kitchens and ample workspace. Beyond the hotel's doors, guests can easily access nearby attractions, such as the Vancouver Seawall and Grouse Mountain.
Located an easy distance from the Vancouver International Airport, the hotel is a preferred destination among business travelers. Whether groups need to meet for the day or an extended stay, the Residence Inn Vancouver Downtown makes the process a breeze with its flexible packages and meeting spaces.
Rates start at $189, and travellers are encouraged to book summer visits early.
