September 11, 2012

BETHESDA, Md., Sept. 11, 2012 /PRNewswire/ — For a second year in a row, TownePlace Suites by Marriott is the number one ranked hotel brand in the midprice extended-stay tier.

Every year, Business Travel News asks business travel buyers to rate the hotel brands with which they conduct business. Survey categories include the helpfulness and courteousness of the hotel staff, the physical appearance of the hotels, the quality of the in-room business amenities, and the overall price and value relationship.

“We are thrilled to be named the number one extended-stay brand in the midprice segment,” said Loren Nalewanski, vice president and global brand manager, TownePlace Suites. “Service is the most important element in a hotel experience. We strive to provide our guests with a comfortable and enjoyable stay while they are on the road. This recognition by such a key sector of the travel industry is truly an honor.”
