San Diego, CA – The Catamaran Resort Hotel and Spa has been honored with TripAdvisor’s 2014 Certificate of Excellence Award, which recognizes hospitality excellence and is given only to establishments that consistently achieve outstanding traveller reviews on TripAdvisor.
The Catamaran, which won the award for the second year in a row, ranked 28th among San Diego’s 269 hotels on TripAdvisor for the week of May 26. It ranked 52nd this time last year, a 24-place improvement.
“Our beloved guests have spoken and we appreciate all the positive feedback that keeps coming our way,” said General Manager Mike Staples. “We will never take our foot off the accelerator as we always seek to provide the bestexperience in San Diego.”
The Catamaran’s signature restaurant, The Atoll, also garnered 2014 Certificate of Excellence honors.
When selecting Certificate of Excellence winners, TripAdvisor uses a proprietary algorithm to determine the honorees that takes into account reviews ratings. Businesses must maintain an overall TripAdvisor bubble rating of at least four out of five, volume, and recency of reviews. Additional criteria include a business’ tenure and popularity ranking on the site.
“TripAdvisor is pleased to honor exceptional hospitality businesses for consistent excellence,” said Marc Charron, President of TripAdvisor for Business. “The Certificate of Excellence award gives top performing establishments around the world the recognition they deserve, based on feedback from those who matter most – their customers. From Australia to Zimbabwe, we want to applaud exceptional hospitality businesses for offering TripAdvisor travellers a great customer experience.”
