Just one year after an extensive $10 million hotel renovation and repositioning, the Radisson Kingsley Hotel in Bloomfield Hills, MI has been officially recognized by America's lead system of ranking for hotels and resorts. Associates of the Radisson Kingsley were recently joined by representatives from ownership, management, and the American Automobile Association (AAA) for a celebration luncheon. On hand was AAA's Nancy Kane, Public Relations Manager, who awarded each hotel associate with a AAA Four Diamond lapel pin. The Radisson Kingsley hotel is one of only two hotels in the Oakland County region to be honored with the prestigious AAA Four Diamond Award.
"Everyone here at the Radisson Kingsley is delighted that our efforts and commitment to quality has been so quickly recognized by AAA, the ranking that more American travelers pay attention to than any other. As a Four Diamond property, we join some of the finest hotels and resorts in the country, and we will do everything we need to do to ensure that our guests have the finest experience possible. We will wear our pins proudly," said Michael Harrison, General Manager. AAA's Four Diamond Award requires that a hotel provide a highly refined level of quality in accommodations, amenities, hospitality, facilities, service, physical attributes and attention to detail.
The hotel was also recently honored by Radisson Hotels & Resorts as a recipient of a 2004 Renovation Award for the exceptional quality of its hotel's completed renovation project and its support of Radisson's brand standards. The hotel was one of only two locations honored for its renovation project investment in the $10 Million and Above Category among the nearly 250 hotels in The Americas region.
A total of 16 Radisson hotels received the 2004 Renovation Awards that were presented by Bjorn Gullaksen, Radisson Hotels & Resorts Brand Leader and executive vice president of Full Service Hotels for Carlson Hotels Worldwide; and Bob Moerke, regional vice president of operations for Carlson Hotels Worldwide, at the recent Carlson Hotels Worldwide Annual Business Conference in Palm Beach, Aruba, in the Caribbean.
