Super 8 Worldwide Awards of Excellence

Three Super 8 hotels in the management portfolio of Pacrim Hospitality Services Inc. were presented with Super 8 Worldwide Awards of Excellence at the international brand conference last month (February 2009) in Orlando, Florida.

Tracie Maynert and Eleanor Heidelberg, team members at Super 8 Langley, British Columbia were recognized with a Golden Pineapple Award for their consistent achievements in leading the hotel’s support of community fund-raising events. Heather Fiala, affectionately known by guests as “The Breakfast Lady” at Super 8 Barrie, Ontario also accepted a Golden Pineapple Award for her outstanding guest service and attention as the Breakfast Bar manager. Her personal touch with guests has been identified by many as an important reason for their loyalty to the hotel.

The team at Super 8 Calgary-Shawnessy, which over the past several years has raised as much as $100,000 for cancer research, was recognized with a Spirit of Super 8 Award. The hotel hosts Calgary Stampede events, such as a Pancake Breakfast, annually. During the awards presentations Pacrim Hospitality Services Inc. (PHSI) and CEO Glenn Squires received the Dennis Brown Memorial Award recognizing achievements in developing a significant number of Super 8 properties across Canada “from the ground up”. Established in 1990 the award is made in memory of the co-founder of Super 8 Worldwide. There are 30 Canadian Super 8 hotels in the portfolio of Pacrim Hospitality Services Inc.

CEO Glenn Squires said that all of these awards are important and valued by everyone in the company. “These awards recognize the outstanding efforts of individual teams and team members for customer service and community service and are highly cherished. The same passion and commitment to excellence that is being acknowledged with these awards, is offered to our guests everyday,” Mr. Squires said. “As a company we are exceptionally proud of these colleagues.”
