World’s Largest Travel Site
GREENBELT, Md., June 11, 2012 — Chesapeake Hospitality, one of the country’s fastest growing third-party hotel management companies, announced today that its Crowne Plaza Tampa Westshore and Crowne Plaza Houston Downtown hotels have both received a TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence award. Kim Sims, president of Chesapeake Hospitality, made the announcement.
The accolade, which honors hospitality excellence, is given only to establishments that consistently achieve outstanding traveler reviews on TripAdvisor — approximately 10 percent of accommodations listed receive this prestigious award. To qualify for the Certificate of Excellence, businesses must maintain an overall rating of four or higher, out of a possible five, as reviewed by travelers on TripAdvisor. Additional criteria include the volume of reviews received within the last 12 months.
“We are privileged that our Crowne Plaza Tampa Westshore and Crowne Plaza Houston Downtown hotels have both been acknowledged for their exceptional service, customer satisfaction and overall organizational achievements,” said Sims. “To have multiple hotels win this prestigious award proves that our guests continue to recognize our staff’s outstanding commitment to providing them a one-of-a-kind experience.”
The Crowne Plaza Houston Downtown hotel is the premier choice in downtown Houston hotels, providing an unequalled experience for both corporate and leisure guests. In addition to the refreshed rooms, guests enjoy complimentary shuttle service throughout the downtown area, 24-hour business amenities, a 24-hour fitness center, outdoor swimming pool, more than 12,000 square feet of event space and on-site dining at Brazos Restaurant & Lounge.
The Crowne Plaza Tampa Westshore hotel offers upscale accommodations located in the heart of Westshore Business District, two miles from the airport and less than six miles from downtown and Tampa Bay Convention Center. Guests are within minutes of major highways and within walking distance of Westshore Plaza. The hotel also offers Tampa business travelers more than 9,000 square feet of flexible event space.
“TripAdvisor is pleased to honor exceptional businesses for consistent excellence, as reviewed by travelers on the site,” said Christine Petersen, president of TripAdvisor for Business. “The Certificate of Excellence award gives highly rated establishments around the world the recognition they deserve.
