(Las Vegas, NV) Nancy Merrigan, General Manager of the Quality Inn and Suites, 134 River Road, Sequim, WA was awarded the coveted Platinum at the recent Choice Hotels International Annual Convention at the Mandalay Bay Hotel and Conference Center in Las Vegas.
At a dinner ceremony, Patrick Pacious, Choice Hotels President and Chief Executive Officer said, “We take our role in making our guests feel welcome, wanted and respected seriously—it’s a task our hotels strive for every day. But these award-winning hotels go above and beyond. They’re constantly proving they are the best of the best.”
This is the second platinum plaque in a row for Merrigan and her staff. Hotels that achieve the prestigious Quality Inn Platinum Award represent the top 3% of all hotels in their brand. The award is based on a combination of guest satisfaction, cleanliness and staff service. The Sequim Quality Inn and Suites was ranked #18 of 1,473 Quality Inn properties across the nation.
Said Merrigan, “We treat our guests like family and remember them when they return. Our employees love their jobs and our guests recognize that.”
Merrigan was recently recognized by Morningside, a not-for-profit community rehabilitation program for the Quality Inn’s long term commitment to providing employment to individuals with disabilities.
Said Bret Wirta, CEO of Wirta Hospitality Worldwide, who owns the hotel, “The Sequim Quality Inn and Suites has begun its second decade, a time where most hotels begin to show their age. But thanks to a property-wide renovation and Nancy and her staff’s attention to detail, we look as new as when we first opened. My company is committed to maintaining a hotel that our guests embrace and our community is proud of.”
Merrigan concluded, “Our goal next year is Hotel of the Year.”
