Across Florida, thousands of lodgings offer 370,000 rooms to Florida’s 95-million annual visitors.
Last year, only 132 lodgings, including all of Beach Vacation Rental’s properties, earned the highly coveted White Glove Award.
Pompano Beach, FL –Cleanliness is typically a traveler’s top priority when needing to stay in a hotel room or vacation rental. It couldn’t get any better than at Beach Vacation Rentals’ Fort Lauderdale area properties in Pompano Beach. All five Beach Vacation Rentals short-term cottages and apartment lodgings scored 100-percent during rigorous surprise inspections recently, to win the Superior Small Lodging Associations’ prestigious White Glove Award for the third straight year.
“It’s a huge achievement by my staff to get 100-percent excellence in housekeeping scores three years in a row for all five properties, especially after undergoing surprise inspections that last for hours,” said Elaine Fitzgerald, president and CEO of Beach Vacation Rentals. “My staff deserves all the credit because of our very high standards. We go the extra mile to keep our properties clean and attractive inside and out for our tourists and business travelers.”
Across the state, thousands of hotels, motels, B&Bs, travel lodges, inns, beach houses and resorts offer 370,000 rooms to Florida’s 95-million annual visitors. Last year, only 132 lodgings, including all of Beach Vacation Rental’s properties, earned the highly coveted White Glove Award.
Once again, the winning Beach Vacation Rentals properties are Cottages by the Ocean, Bahama Beach Club, Pineapple Place, Pelican Place and Sunny Place. All are fully furnished beach-area apartments or cottages available to tourists and business travelers for about the price of a single hotel room.
“The White Glove Award is our organization’s highest recognition for housekeeping achievement,” said Scott Rizelli, executive director of Florida’s statewide Superior Small Lodging Association. “Honorees receive their awards at our statewide conference in October.” The tough guidelines for Superior Small Lodgings inspections go far above and beyond the State of Florida annual inspections that are required of all hotel properties.
“The Superior Small Lodgings inspector pulled apart the bedding to check the quality of our sheets, mattress pads and pillow protectors. She looked for any dust on the light bulbs. She measured the sizes of our soap and towels. She pulled the furniture from the walls to look behind. She checked everything including the silverware, pots and pans and toilet seats,” said Fitzgerald. “She inspected our places for several hours. It was intense; but in the end, we scored 100-percent.”
