The Revelstoke Best Western Plus hotel has received one of the chain’s highest honours for quality.
The hotel, which opened in 2011, won the Best Western Chair Award, which recognizes the top five per cent of hotels out of the chain’s 2,400 North American properties in terms of cleanliness and maintenance.
“I’m very excited about it and very proud of my staff,” said manager Chelsea Lamont.
She credited regular maintenance and a caring attitude as keys to the hotel’s success. “Getting your staff to care about what they’re doing,” she added.
The 87-room hotel was also voted “2012 #6 Hotel for Families in Canada” by the website Trip Advisor.
“Receiving the Chair Award from Best Western is a tremendous honor,” said general manager Brady Beruschi. “This award demonstrates our staffs’ commitment to providing quality accommodations for our guests. Our housekeeping, maintenance and front desk departments have worked extremely hard to achieve this level of excellence”
He thanked the management team of Lamont, Kelly O’Brien and Andre Cadieux for its hard work.
“Without their leadership, these awards could not have been achieved,” Beruschi said.
