Campbell River Comfort Inn Receives Top Choice Hotels Honour

The Comfort Inn & Suites in Campbell River, BC, received the International Hotel of the Year Award for the Comfort brand at Choice Hotels International’s 63rd  annual convention in Las Vegas. Partner and general manager Jonathan Shead was on hand to receive the award in recognition of his team’s superior customer service and operational excellence.

Choice Hotels’ International Hotel of the Year Award winners 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.

“Since opening in 2015, the Comfort Inn & Suites in Campbell River has demonstrated remarkable achievements in guest service and operational excellence,” said Brian Leon, managing director at Choice Hotels Canada. “The ownership and hotel team truly embody the dedication and passion required to deliver a memorable experience to guests.”

Located on the east coast of Vancouver Island, the multi-award winning, new-build, 58-room hotel recently received a Choice Hotels Canada Hotel of the Year Award, 2017 Platinum Hospitality Award, the 2017 APEX Award for Highest Likelihood to Recommend and TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence.

“This is a huge achievement for us and we are very proud to receive such a prestigious accolade,” said Shead. “Of course, none of this would have been possible without the dedication of our team, which is always looking for ways to improve the property and make every one of our guests feel welcome while travelling on the road.”

The Comfort brand, franchised by Choice Hotels, is the largest 100 percent smoke-free hotel brand in the US, Canada and Mexico, with more than 1,800 properties open and operating there.
