Hampton hits Top 25 for Best Service

There are over 50,000 hotels throughout the United States.

And the Warren Hampton Inn & Suites has landed in the top 25 for Best Service in the 2018 TripAdvisor Travelers’ Choice Awards.

Number 17 to be exact.

To say that the award was unexpected would be an understatement.

“This came as a total surprise to us and as you can imagine is a source of pride,” General Manager Karen Sobkowski said. “Even the Hotel California is there with us.”

According to TripAdvisor, the “award winners were determined based on millions of reviews and opinions collected in a single year from TripAdvisor travelers worldwide In the 16th year of the awards, TripAdvisor has recognized 8,095 properties in 94 countries and eight regions worldwide.

“The hallmark of Travelers’ Choice hotel winners are remarkable quality, service and value.”

“As you will see when you look at it, we are among some exclusive company,” Sobkowski said. “This is out of all brands and independent hotels, motels, bed and breakfasts, etc.”

She said that people leaving reviews are either “upset or blown-away happy… That’s why I think I’m more excited than anything.”

Sobkowski added that “(I) never in my life thought we were rated that well.”

Notice came in the form of an email then an official letter.

“Most travelers use the reviews on TripAdvisor to plan their trips so we definitely feel it is a wonderful “shot in the arm for tourism in our county, sparking travelers to come here to see what is so special,” Sobkowski explained.

“My point is it’s not just a testament to the hotel. (It is) a testament to the area… It’s all about incredible service. People that come here feel they get the best service in any hotel they do to.”
