The Quality Inn Conference Center hotel in Bellville recently received the prestigious 2016 Gold Hospitality Award, given by Choice Hotels International, one of the world’s leading hotel companies.
The commendation signifies that the area hotel is in the upper echelon among more than 5,200 Choice Hotels across the country.
“The Quality Inn Conference Center’s commitment to excellence and outstanding guest service has earned it this well-deserved recognition as one of the best hotels among the Quality Inn brand,” said Steve Joyce, president and chief executive officer for Choice Hotels International. “We here at Choice Hotels are very proud to award this distinguished honor to the Quality Inn Conference Center hotel.”
Steve Haring, the hotel’s general manager, said that those receiving the Gold Hospitality Award must be rated in the top ten percent of all Quality Inns in the U.S.
“There are over 1,200 Quality Inns, and we are number 73, so we are well within that range,” explained Haring. “We attribute our success to our wonderful and experienced staff who love to welcome and accommodate all of our guests to the best of their abilities,” continued Haring.
Haring commented that the hotel is busy year-round.
With I-71 traffic bringing over 44,000 vehicles daily near the hotel’s front door, the establishment provides comfort to those visiting area destinations such as Snow Trails Ski Resort in the winter, as well as events at the Richland County Fairgrounds and the Renaissance Theatre.
Warm weather also draws many travelers to the area, with activities such as the Bellville Street Fair, Deer Ridge Golf Course, Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course, Spitzer Motor Speedway, Mohican State Park, Malabar Farm State Park, and the Ohio Bird Sanctuary, among many others.
Bellville’s Quality Inn and Conference Center is expecting to play host to even more visitors in the future. “We are anxious for new development bringing more people in to experience our beautiful community,” Haring said. “There are several serious inquiries for new businesses looking at our interchange due to the road being widened and the attention and exposure that is bringing to Bellville.”
The Quality Inn Conference Center is located at 1000 Comfort Plaza in Bellville.
