12 Apr, 2010 Hotel and Motel Management

New York, NY – The Strand Ocean Drive was chosen as a 2010 Orbitz Best In Stay Hotel in Miami. The 2010 Orbitz Best In Stay Awards recognize more than 50 top-rated hotels based on reviews by guests themselves. As a member of the modern boutique hotel collection, Desires Hotels <> , the coveted honor recognizes The Strand Ocean Drive’s commitment to outstanding achievement in guest relations.

“The Strand Ocean Drive is truly honored by this award. What makes the award so extraordinary is that it comes directly from our customers. It's a testament to our team’s hard work and dedication,” says Raul Leal President of Desires Hotel.

Orbitz Best In Stay Award winners were selected based on the overall numeric score they received by Orbitz travelers. Reviews and scores for each hotel are collected only from Orbitz customers who have booked and stayed at the hotel. Reviewers are asked to rate a variety of hotel attributes on a scale of 1 to 5, including amenities, maintenance, hotel staff, room comfort, location, and value. The “overall score” is an average of all reviewer scores submitted.

“With hundreds of thousands of hotel reviews, Orbitz offers travelers the relevant information they need to find the hotel that is right for them,” said Peggy Bianco, Group Vice President of Global Supplier Services for Orbitz Worldwide. “With our Best In Stay awards, we are harnessing this guest feedback to recognize and celebrate the hotels that provide the best customer experience, according to the travelers who have stayed there.”
