Significant Achievement Awards for Radisson Suite Hotel Halifax, Nova Scotia

The Radisson Suite Hotel Halifax, located in the city’s downtown core, has earned two international awards for guest service excellence from Radisson Hotels and Resorts, The Americas. The property, owned by Holloway Lodging Real Estate Investment Trust (REIT) and managed by Pacrim Hospitality Services Inc was named as a Gold Level, President’s Award winner and as the recipient of a “Yes I Can” Award from the brand for 2008.

A perennial leader within the family of international Radisson hotels, Radisson Suite Hotel Halifax achieved the most senior level of President’s Award by maintaining exemplary guest service rankings within the brand system. Only two Radisson hotels in Canada, of the 21 overall award recipients in North and South America, were recognized.

The “Yes I Can” Award is earned by hotels that prove to be proactive in identifying and resolving guest problems. Of the 18 “Yes I can” Awards earned, the Radisson Suite Hotel Halifax is the only Canadian hotel. There are 200 Radisson hotels in North and South America. “There’s little doubt that our Radisson Halifax hotel is special,” Glenn Squires, CEO of Holloway Lodging REIT and CEO of Pacrim Hospitality Services Inc said today. “Under the award winning leadership of General Manager Bill Harrison, and thanks to the overall team dedication and unrelenting commitment to guest service, this hotel stands above the crowd in many ways. It is recognized among the finest of downtown Halifax accommodations and these awards are well deserved,” Mr. Squires added.

The Radisson Suite Hotel Halifax has 104 uniquely designed suites each with a separate living room and is located at 1649 Hollis Street in Halifax. The awards will be received by the hotel in June 2009.
