Courtyard Pune Hinjewadi Also Honoured Among Asia Pacific Hotels With Five Awards
PUNE, INDIA -- (Marketwired) -- Jun 03, 2015 -- It's been a winning year for the Courtyard Pune Hinjewadi. At Marriott's General Managers Conference in February, the Hinjewadi hotel was named Hotel of the Year 2014, recognized for its sales, team work, social initiatives and strong leadership team. The hotel shared the honour with the Courtyard Mexico City Airport, both of which were chosen from 1,000 Courtyard hotels worldwide.
The annual conference, held this year at Gaylord National Resort and Convention Center at the National Harbor, just outside of Washington, D.C., recognizes the best associates, strongest managers and top performing hotels. Celebrating these achievements has been a long-standing tradition and is a strong part of the Marriott culture.
In addition to winning Hotel of the Year, the 4-star Pune property was also recognized with five awards within the Asia Pacific Marriott Hotels category, including Food & Beverage Operations of the Year, Room Operations of the Year, Best Food Quality of the Year, Best Arrival Experience and Best Overall Guest Experience. Its success is due in no small part to general manager Manish Tolani, who was awarded General Manager of the Year 2014 by Hotelier India magazine.
"This was a big year for Courtyard by Marriott," Tolani says. "We marked the opening of our 1,000th hotel, which happened to be in India, with a large celebration, and our hotel winning these awards gives us one more reason to celebrate."
While the hotel is honoured to be recognized, the dedication of the team is something that takes place every day -- awards or not. The Hinjewadi hotel, located in Pune's IT hub, is popular with business travellers, catering to this growing group with amenities including a 24-hour business centre, all-day dining, a social bar, fitness centre and accommodations with Wi-Fi and ample work space. Its seven meeting spaces include a beautifully landscaped lawn that can host a theatre-style meeting for 500 or reception for 1,000, as well as smaller venues for board meetings and interviews.
"We are honoured to be recognized," Tolani says, "and we will continue to strive to offer our guests the very best."
