January 07, 2015 // Franchising.com // MCLEAN, Va.– Hilton Garden Inn, Hilton Worldwide's award-winning brand of upscale yet affordable hotels, recently recognized its highest achieving properties. Nearly 50 individual and hotel awards were presented to recipients chosen from the brand's growing portfolio of more than 600 hotels worldwide. The 2014 Hotel of the Year and Connie Award winners were presented to North American winner, Hilton Garden Inn Mobile East Bay/Daphne, AL, who received this honor for the second consecutive year, and international winner Hilton Garden Inn Krasnodar, Russia.
The Connie Award, named after Hilton Worldwide's founder Conrad Hilton, is awarded to two top performing hotels of the year based on three key components: quality assurance audits measuring cleanliness, condition and brand standards, customer satisfaction scores rating staff service and the quality of the hotel's physical accommodations.
"We are pleased to honor these outstanding hotels. They embody the brand's promise to do whatever it takes to ensure that our guests are satisfied. Not only can our guests count on each of these hotels, but the communities where they operate can count on them to strive to enrich the lives of everyone they connect with throughout the year," said Adrian Kurre, global head, Hilton Garden Inn. "These hotel award winners are leaders in excellence through quality customer service, attention to detail, and a passionate dedication to our award winning brand."
The Pride Awards are given to the second and third overall ranked hotels based on the same key components of quality, cleanliness and customer satisfaction.
