Several Fairmont Hotels Receive TripAdvisors Coveted Traveler’s Choice Award
VANCOUVER, January 28, 2011 – TripAdvisor, the world’s leading travel review forum, has recognized four Fairmont hotels among its Traveler’s Choice Awards for 2011. Among the honored are Fairmont Beijing, ranked fourth among the Top 25 Hotels in China, and Fairmont Vancouver Airport and Fairmont Pacific Rim, Vancouver, ranked third and eighth respectively among the Top 10 Luxury Hotels in Canada. Fairmont Heritage Place, Ghirardelli Square in San Francisco, part of the brand’s private residence club offerings, also made the cut ranking ninth among the Top 25 Hotels in the USA.
TripAdvisor’s Popularity Index ranked The Fairmont Vancouver Airport #1 out of 25 Richmond area properties with 96% of travelers recommending this hotel.
Brian Richardson, vice president, brand marketing & communications stated, “We value customer feedback and to have four Fairmont properties included among TripAdvisor’s top hotels is a true honor. Trusted and authentic travel advice is a strong point of reference for many when booking their travel needs nowadays, so the fact our guests took the time to rank and recommend these hotels and also shared their travel experience with others means a lot.”
The site’s Traveler’s Choice Awards are based on user generated comments and submitted reviews on the TripAdvisor website. Users assign a ranking out of five based on their experience in each of the following categories: value, rooms, location, cleanliness, service and sleep quality. Users are also asked to specify if they visited the property for leisure or business, with whom they traveled with and if they would recommend the property a friend.
