ROCKVILLE, Md., July 14, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- The MainStay Suites St. Robert – Fort Leonard Wood has once again captured top honors.

"Year after year, this property demonstrates remarkable guest service and operational excellence," said Anne Smith, vice president of brand strategy for Choice Hotels. "Winning one Hotel of the Year award is a tremendous achievement—and a special one, since winners are selected by their peers—but to win this award four times shows the property's sustained ability to go above and beyond in providing an unmatched guest experience."
