The next time you’re ready to redeem your Choice Privileges points for a hotel stay, you might consider those franchised properties that have won a “2009 Inn of the Year” award which honors “the best of the best” among over 5,800 hotels worldwide. The Inn of the Year winners are selected in part by reviewing each property’s guest satisfaction scores, which are calculated using the results of surveys that are emailed to hotel guests within three days of their checkout.
The winners reflect the top two percent of hotels within their brand. Some of the winners include: Comfort Inn, Branson, Mo.; Quality Inn Merry Acres, Albany, Ga. and Clarion Inn, Garden City, Kan. International hotels include Comfort Hotel Toyama, Toyama, Japan; Quality Inn Ciudad de Mexico Roma, Mexico City, Mexico and Clarion Hotel Real Tegucigalpa, Tegucigalpa, Honduras.
