Doubletree by Hilton Sheffield Park Earns 2013 Trip Advisor Certificate of Excellence

23 May 2013

DoubleTree by Hilton Sheffield Park Hotel today announced that it has received a TripAdvisor® Certificate of Excellence award. The accolade, which honours hospitality excellence, is given only to establishments that consistently achieve outstanding traveller reviews on TripAdvisor, and is extended to qualifying businesses worldwide. Only the top-performing 10 per cent of businesses listed on TripAdvisor receive this prestigious award.

To qualify for a Certificate of Excellence, businesses must maintain an overall rating of four or higher, out of a possible five, as reviewed by travellers on TripAdvisor, and must have been listed on TripAdvisor for at least 12 months. Additional criteria include the volume of reviews received within the last 12 months.

Earlier this year, Sheffield topped the UK list for service levels in the Service Quality Survey compiled by online reservation service hotel.info. The survey analysed the post-stay reviews of over 25,700 hotel guests to reveal the best and worst service levels across the UK based on friendliness and staff competence.

The Trip Advisor Certificate of Excellence for the DoubleTree by Hilton Sheffield Park illustrates the ongoing quality of service provided by the Sheffield tourism industry.

QUOTES: “DoubleTree by Hilton Sheffield Park is pleased to receive a TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence,” said Steve Whittaker, General Manager. “We strive to offer our customers a memorable experience, and this accolade is evidence that our hard work is translating into positive reviews on TripAdvisor.”

“TripAdvisor is delighted to celebrate the success of businesses around the globe, from Sydney to Chicago, Sao Paulo to Rome, which are consistently offering TripAdvisor travellers a great customer experience,” said Alison Copus, Vice President of Marketing for TripAdvisor for Business. “The Certificate of Excellence award provides top performing establishments around the world the recognition they deserve, based on feedback from those who matter most – their customers.”
