SKY Hospitality is excited to announce that 14 properties under its management have been awarded the 2015 TripAdvisor® Certificate of Excellence. The accolade, which honors hospitality excellence, is awarded to establishments that consistently achieve outstanding traveler reviews on TripAdvisor, and is extended to qualifying businesses worldwide. Only the top-performing 10 percent of businesses listed on TripAdvisor receive this prestigious award.
Two Sky Hospitality employees have been nominated for the 2014 TripAdvisor® Exceptional Service Awards in recognition of their dedication to excellent customer service.
Three Sky managed hotels have been named Hotel of the Year, due to extraordinary results in all categories of guest satisfaction, operating metrics, and community service.
Four Sky General Managers received this prestigious award, recognizing the exceptional achievements and leadership it takes to run a successful hotel.
We are the only franchisee to win this prestigious award from the Microtel Inn & Suites Brand, twice. This honor is given to the franchisee who exemplifies the "best of the brand".
Sky managed hotels have won this award 3 consecutive years. This award recognizes the contributions and service of these hotels aimed at making a positive contribution within their local communities.
Numerous employees from the Housekeeping, Front Desk, and Maintenance Departments of Sky managed hotels have been recognized for their outstanding individual performances for the delivery of exemplary guest service and contribution to overall guest satisfaction.
Sky hotels consistently achieve quality evaluation scores in the highest tier of their brands. Sky Hotels have also been recognized among the elite group of Quality Excellence award winners each year, since opening our first Microtel in 1999. In 2012, 25% of the Top 20 Microtels were operated by Sky Hospitality. Also in 2012, two SKY Microtels were awarded 3 Diamonds by AAA - the first in brand history. Two Sky Hospitality operated hotels were among the top 25 bargain hotels in the United States selected by Trip Advisor Traveler's Choice in 2013.
Because of our successful development experience, in 2006 we were asked to participate in an initiative launched by US Franchise Systems, Inc. to jump start growth of the Microtel system. In this capacity, we were assigned multiple projects and assisted first time hotel franchisees and developers on an individual basis. Our role was to facilitate and expedite all aspects of these projects from the time the license was signed and land control established, through ground break. This initiative was so successful that it received national press recognition (see October 2006 issue of Hotel Business magazine) and was a part of the extraordinary surge of Microtel growth in 2006 and 2007.
