ROCKVILLE, Md., July 10, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Choice Hotels International, Inc. (NYSE: CHH), one of the world's leading hotel companies, recognized the Rodeway Inn & Suites Downtowner – Route 66 in Williams, Arizona as winner of its 2015 Hotel of the Year Award for the second consecutive year. The prestigious award was presented to owners Rob and Carol Samsky at the 61st annual Choice Hotels International convention in Las Vegas.
Choice Hotels' Hotel of the Year Award winners are selected by the Choice Hotels Owners Council and are presented to properties that demonstrate lodging excellence and offer guest experiences that set the standard for the industry. Nominees are all ranked at the top of hotels within their brand.
"This distinction of excellence is particularly special because all Hotel of the Year winners are selected by their peers," said Anne Smith, vice president of brand strategy for Choice Hotels. "That means other owners—who are also experts in the lodging business—agree that this property goes 'above and beyond' with exceptional service, operational excellence and guest satisfaction."
"Our guests and their comfort are the top priority of everybody here at the hotel," said owner Rob Samsky. "We have a beautiful, centrally located property, but we would not have earned Hotel of the Year or our many Choice Hotels Gold and Platinum awards without the dedication of our remarkable, caring staff to meet and exceed our guests' expectations."
The Rodeway Inn & Suites Downtowner – Route 66 is a boutique lodge located only 40 minutes away from the Grand Canyon and less than an hour from Snowbowl Ski Area. The property is only minutes away from the Grand Canyon Railway, Elk Ridge Ski Area and the Grand Canyon Deer Farm.
