NZ hotels worth their weight in gold

NZ hotels worth their weight in gold

New Zealand wins six major accolades at 2016 Choice Hotels Asia-Pac Gold Awards


Choice Hotels Asia-Pac has recognised six New Zealand hotel properties for their superior hospitality performance, each taking out a coveted Gold Award at the 2016 Choice Hotels Asia-Pac Franchisee Gold Awards held last night in Hobart, Tasmania.

The prestigious award ceremony, held at the Hotel Grand Chancellor on Hobart’s waterfront, saw six of New Zealand’s top-performing hotels shine on the international stage, including Clarion Suites Ambassador (Hamilton), Comfort Inn Academy (Tauranga), Econo Lodge Napier, Quality Hotel Elms (Christchurch), Quality Hotel Wellington and Quality Hotel Parnell (Auckland).

Trent Fraser, Choice Hotels Asia-Pac Chief Executive Officer, announced this year’s winners in front of more than 240 guests and praised the extremely high level of quality and service exhibited by each of the award-winning properties.

“Achieving a Gold Award essentially means the hotel is ranked in the top 10 percent within each Choice Hotels brand,” Fraser explains.

“It’s truly inspiring to work alongside hoteliers that are committed to evolving with the industry yet continue to remain focused on delivering the best possible experience for every single guest.”

In order to be eligible for the Gold Awards, each property is required to receive consistently positive guest feedback and meet strict criteria relating to property development and growth, as well as demonstrating excellence in Choice Hotels’ training, conference, sales, franchisor relations and marketing activities.

Each year, all award-winning individuals and properties are nominated and judged by an executive panel of members from Choice Hotels Asia-Pac’s Senior Management team.
