09.11.2012 WESTIN LA PALOMA RESORT RECEIVES GOLD KEY AWARD
TUCSON, Ariz. (September, 2012) – Tucson’s signature luxury resort and spa, Westin La Paloma, recently received the prestigious 2012 Gold Key Award presented by Meetings & Conventions Magazine. For over 30 years this annual award has been bestowed upon the world's finest meeting properties.
All recipients of this award of excellence were nominated and selected by the readers of M&C, who based their votes on the overall professionalism and quality of the property. This year, the readers honored 146 domestic and 17 international hotels and resorts as Gold Key winners. Meeting planners selected winning properties based on strict industry criteria including: staff attitude; quality of meeting rooms; quality of guest services; food and beverage service; proficiency of handling reservations; availability of technical/support equipment and range of recreational facilities. Winning hotels and resorts will also be featured in Meetings & Conventions' Gold Awards issue published this November.
"It’s an honor to once again receive this award indicative of our dedication to providing outstanding service and amenities to our valued meeting planners," said Jonathan Litvack, La Paloma Resort’s General Manager. "We will continue to provide the level of luxury and service planners and guests have come to expect here as we discretely rejuvenate the entire resort through 2013. We believe this $30 million investment will bring the resort’s surroundings into alignment with our award-winning service levels to offer a complete meeting experience at a new level of luxury."
