Hotel Tops Hospitality List for Seventh Straight Year
The winner of the 2015 Masters of Hospitality Award in Augusta is no surprise – Candlewood Suites won the honor for the seventh consecutive year.
The award is presented annually by the Augusta Convention and Visitors Bureau. The award is based on the nominations provided by guests of the hotel. The hotel with the most nominations is given the award.
“What sets us apart is our customer service,” general manager Betty Carter said. “It’s our top priority.”
Candlewood Suites, 1080 Claussen Road, is an extended stay hotel, which means service is top priority for guests as well.
“It’s extended stay so the service we give them does not go unnoticed,” she said.
Candlewood has 80 suites with fully-equipped kitchens and a long list of free amenities. It is also a “green” hotel, with a host of energy-saving measures. The hotel recently added a free car charger for guests with electric vehicles.
The competition for the Masters of Hospitality Award is stiff, with more than 120 hotels in the area and more under construction.
Candlewood has framed its latest award and is displaying it in the lobby.
