The Gold Key Award for 2014 belongs to Hilton Myrtle Beach Resort at Kingston Resorts in Myrtle Beach!
Only 151 hotels/resorts nationwide earned this accolade, and 17 other international hotels/resorts, which are nominated and selected by Meetings & Convention magazine, according to a release from Hilton Myrtle Beach Resort announcing the award.
Votes are based on “overall professionalism and quality of the property” as well as “staff attitude; quality of meeting rooms; quality of guest services; food and beverage service; proficiency of handling reservations; availability of technical/support equipment and range of recreational facilities.”
The Hilton Myrtle Beach Resort is oceanfront with condos, townhomes, villas, a health club, indoor and outdoor pools, tennis courts, a water park and more.
“The 2014 Gold Key winners have met these tough standards through their dedication and by providing outstanding service,” said Kirk Lewis, Meetings & Conventions publisher. “The entire M&C staff commends the properties that have demonstrated the qualities and commitment to earn the Gold Key distinction.”
“We have been included in the Gold Key awards for more than 10 years, and we’re thrilled to be included once again,” said Bob Barenberg, managing director, in the release. “Clearly, the decision makers are a very knowledgeable group of meeting professionals, and we know the judging is extremely difficult. We are very proud of our staff and beautiful facility to be selected among the very best.”
