Homewood Suites by Hilton Orlando Theme Parks Receives 2019 AAA Inspector’s Best Of Housekeeping Award
Top 25% of AAA Inspected & Approved hotels recognized with award for outstanding cleanliness and condition
ORLANDO, Fla. - AAA Three Diamond Rated Homewood Suites by Hilton Orlando Theme Parks has been recognized with the recently announced 2019 AAA Inspector’s Best Of Housekeeping Award, granted to AAA Inspected & Approved hotels throughout the United States, Canada, Mexico and the Caribbean for earning the highest possible cleanliness and condition scores.
A hotel’s housekeeping and maintenance attributes are among the most rigorous components analyzed during the on-site evaluation conducted annually by AAA’s professionally trained inspectors. While every hotel must meet expected standards of cleanliness and condition to qualify as AAA Inspected & Approved and receive a Diamond Rating, hotels awarded the Inspector’s Best of Housekeeping designation significantly surpass expectations, as measured during a comprehensive, on-site inspection. All areas must reflect this very high standard as AAA inspectors review for evidence of dirt, dust, pests, equipment performance and more.
“We are honored to be recognized by AAA for our commitment to housekeeping and maintenance,” said Les Harris, general manager, “At Homewood Suites by Hilton Orlando Theme Parks, we are committed to exceeding guest expectations and providing superior travel experiences. This award acknowledges the hard work and dedication of our entire staff.”
Homewood Suites by Hilton Orlando Theme Parks is part of a select group of hotels in North America. Properties must demonstrate housekeeping excellence for two consecutive inspections and be free of AAA member complaints to meet the criteria for this award, which puts them in the top 25% of all 27,000 AAA Inspected & Approved hotels.
“AAA has found that cleanliness and physical condition are consistently among the most important components travelers consider when looking for a hotel,” said Michael Petrone, director, AAA Inspections & Diamond Ratings. “In addition to passing AAA’s rigorous on-site inspection, Homewood Suites by Hilton Orlando Theme Parks has demonstrated a tremendous commitment to keeping its property in top condition at all times for our members and their guests.”
