Three of Hospitality Management LLC’s Best Western-branded properties have earned the hotel chain’s M.K. Guertin Award for 2017. Named in honor of the chain’s founder, the awards went to the Best Western Plus Patterson Park Inn in Arkansas City, Kansas; Best Western Plus Norman in Norman, Oklahoma; and Best Western Blackwell Inn in Blackwell, Oklahoma.
Only 39 hotels across North America were so honored by Best Western this year.
“This is the third consecutive M.K. Guertin Award for Best Western Blackwell Inn, the second consecutive award for Best Western Plus Patterson Park Inn, and the first award for Best Western Plus Norman, which just opened last year,” said Steve Martens, President of Hospitality Management and winner of Best Western’s 2016 Developer of the Year Award, in a written statement. “I am immensely proud of the team we have assembled at each hotel. It is their hard work and fierce commitment to customer satisfaction that earned these honors. I applaud every single team member for their loyalty to the brand and to our company.”
Hospitality Management operates three Best Western-branded hotels and four hotels overall in Kansas and Oklahoma. A fifth hotel – Best Western Plus Lawrence at Rock Chalk Park – is slated to open in the summer of 2018. The company’s Best Western Plus Norman property was used as the backdrop for Best Western’s 2018 national TV campaign, which premiers in February.
