Orbitz Customers Vote The Gant ‘Best in Stay’ in Aspen
Seven Colorado properties rank among the best for service, amenities, comfort, location and value
ASPEN – Mar. 2, 2010 – Industry awards, especially customer-nominated accolades, speak milestones about a property’s ability to walk-the-talk. With this mantra in mind, Orbitz recently released its 2010 Orbitz ‘Best in Stay’ Award recognizing 51 hotels that earned the best reviews from real guests that have previously stayed at the property. Using a scale of 1-5, each property was evaluated on service, amenities, comfort, location and value. The Gant and two of its sister properties, the Vail Cascade Resort & Spa and the Royal Palms Resort & Spa, claimed three spots on the list for Destination Hotels & Resorts. The Gant was the only property in Aspen to make the mark receiving a near-perfect 4.8 rating, and it was one of seven properties statewide to earn this recognition.
In addition to The Gant, below is a listing of the other six Colorado properties that made the 2010 Orbitz ‘Best in Stay’ Award list:
- Hyatt Regency Denver at Colorado Convention Center Hotel
- Hotel Teatro
- Mountain Thunder Lodge
- The Pines Lodge
- The Steamboat Grand
- Vail Cascade Resort & Spa
“Anyone in the hospitality industry can attest that it is the staff that makes the difference. From reservations, guest check-in to housekeeping and our infamous Gant Men bell staff, it’s a team effort to keep our guests happy and content,” said Erin Peck, director of sales at The Gant. “This award reaffirms that after 35 years, The Gant is still a leading property well disciplined in the art of gracious customer service and guest comfort.”
