Throughout the year, meeting professionals nominated the meeting sites they believe provide exemplary service for group events. The nominated properties were then compiled onto an online ballot where meeting professionals were asked to vote for the best of the best. More than 1,500 voters participated this year in the selection process. Winners get a shiny badge they can display on their website and bragging rights. The award celebrates what planners demand: the highest level of customer service and quality facilities.
There were also six hotel properties in Frisco who received the award for the first time:
Embassy Suites Dallas – Frisco Hotel, Convention Center & Spa
Homewood Suites by Hilton Dallas/Frisco
Hilton Garden Inn Frisco
Comfort Suites at Frisco Square
Holiday Inn Express (formerly Holiday Inn Frisco on Parkwood)
FCVB Executive Director, Marla Roe, raves, “Our staff works hard to make sure that we provide the highest level of service. To have this validated by our clients is the ultimate award.”
