TripAdvisor Travelers Rate Steamboat Grand As A Top-Preforming Hotel for Five Consecutive Years

STEAMBOAT SPRINGS, CO-June 8, 2015- The Steamboat Grand was recently recognized with the 2015 TripAdvisor Hall of Fame Certificate of Excellence, a prestigious award that recognizes businesses that consistently earn top ratings from TripAdvisor travelers. The accolade is granted only to those businesses that have been recipients of the Certificate of Excellence for five years in a row.

“We are thrilled to be recognized by industry leaders for our commitment to consistent quality over the past five years,” said Michael Lomas, vice president and general manager of the Steamboat Grand. “This is an especially high honor since our selection was based on customer reviews which reflect the dedication, exceptional service levels and experience of each and every employee at the hotel.”

This is the fifth consecutive year that the Steamboat Grand has been singled out by TripAdvisor, earning the property its designation in the Hall of Fame. Only 9% of the total Certificate of Excellence recipients have secured this special recognition in this high-ranking category.

“By putting a spotlight on businesses that are focused on delivering great service to customers, TripAdvisor not only helps drive an improvement to hospitality standards around the world, it also gives businesses both large and small the ability to shine and stand out from the competition,” said Marc Charron, president of TripAdvisor for Business.

To qualify for the Certificate of Excellence, businesses must maintain an overall rating of four or higher, out of a possible five, as reviewed by travelers on TripAdvisor. To be recognized, the criteria include the volume of reviews received within the last 12 months. Establishments awarded the Certificate of Excellence are located around the world and represent the upper echelon of businesses listed on the TripAdvisor site.

Located at the base of the Steamboat Ski Resort, just steps from the gondola, the seven-story Steamboat Grand features 328 beautifully appointed guestroom accommodations, ranging from studios, parlors, double queen and king hotel rooms to one-, two- and three-bedroom condominiums, as well as eight luxurious penthouses. The Grand is home to award-winning dining under the direction of Executive Chef Erik Hyslop, a full-service spa and fitness center, an outdoor heated pool and two large whirlpool spas, as well as 17,000 sq. ft. of indoor/outdoor convention space including the hotel’s centerpiece 5,484-square-foot Korbel Grand Ballroom.

Currently, the Steamboat Grand is renovating its outdoor pool facility by nearly doubling the deck footprint to approximately 7,325 square feet.
