Parkwood Inn Magnuson Grand Hotel Receives 2009 Best of Brunswick Award
“Magnuson Hotels congratulates the Parkwood Inn Magnuson Grand Hotel and owner Wes Beal on receiving this award. The 2009 Best of Brunswick award reflects the consistently outstanding customer service that the Parkwood Inn Magnuson Grand Hotel has become famous for,” stated Magnuson Hotels company CEO/Principal Melissa C. Magnuson.
While recession-weary owners across the US are cutting costs and reducing services, owner and Brunswick native Wes Beal has placed service as the hotels’ highest priority. The hotels’ affiliation with Magnuson Hotels’ low cost franchise model has allowed it to focus operating revenue on customer service, rather than as payments in the form of major corporate franchise fees. With a larger reservation system at a lower cost than local competitor hotels Marriott, Choice Hotels & Holiday Inn, the Parkwood Inn Magnuson Grand Hotel has already achieved a 7.6% increase in average room rate year to date, and is excellently positioned to increase corporate, government and leisure segments.
“Some old-fashioned ideas never go out of date,” said Beal. “The guest is the most important person in our business, is the purpose of our work and deserves the most courteous attention we can give. Our success centers around the relentless pursuit of exceptional customer service, so it’s wonderful to be acknowledged in this manner.”
