The team at the Comfort Inn celebrates its win for Rookie of the Year – a national award.

Comfort Inn and Suites wins national award

Rookie of the Year has made an impact since opening last April

Campbell River’s newest hotel, the Comfort Inn and Suites, was honoured recently with a national APEX (Award for Property Excellence) award for Rookie of the Year.

Having only been open since April, 2015, the team is excited and proud to be recognized so early in its existence.

The entire staff at the Comfort Inn and Suites, Campbell River has worked thoroughly since day one to ensure the new hotel in the heart of Campbell River offers nothing but the highest standards to their guests.

Guests have been coming in from around the world to take in all that Campbell River and the West Coast has to offer – and it has been a pleasure for the staff to welcome them to the property.

“Being recognized with an APEX award is a tremendous honour, especially as we were ranked against so many outstanding properties,” says Jonathan Shead, general manager, Comfort Inn and Suites, Campbell River. “We have worked diligently since our opening day to ensure our guests feel welcome, wanted and respected at our hotel. To be acknowledged for that hard work is a great feeling.”

Shead said Campbell River’s Comfort Inn was up against more than 20 other hotels for the award, including chains in Calgary and Halifax.

APEX award winners are announced each October during Choice Hotels Canada’s Annual Fall Conference and recognize top performing hotels across the country in areas ranging from property quality to exemplary guest service.

Choice Hotels Canada operates 320 hotels within the country.

“The team at Comfort Inn and Suites, Campbell River has made a commitment to providing best–in-class service and it hasn’t gone unnoticed,” says Brian Leon, managing director, Choice Hotels Canada.

“They’ve made extraordinary strides as a property and we can’t be more proud to have them as part of the Choice family.”
