Dunedin, FL, June 18, 2010 --(PR.com
)-- The former Best Western Yacht Harbor Inn is now the Best Western Plus Yacht Harbor Inn, after earning the “Best Western Plus” descriptor from the World’s Largest Hotel Chain®. The new descriptors, launched in 2010, give Best Western hotels the opportunity to earn the “Best Western Plus” or “Best Western Premier®” designation by meeting specific design and amenity guidelines. “Best Western Plus” indicates well appointed rooms with modern amenities, and an enhanced level of comfort for guests looking to get the most out of their stay.
“No two Best Western hotels are alike, so these new descriptors will help our guests choose the right hotel for their needs from among the brand’s 2,200 North American properties,” said David Kong, Best Western International president and CEO. “Hotels that earn the ‘Plus’ descriptor typically have a 3-Diamond rating from AAA, and offer a little something extra to make a guest’s stay even more comfortable.”
With 54 guestrooms and convenient guest services such as free high-speed internet access, an in-room refrigerator and available breakfast, the Best Western Plus Yacht Harbor Inn is thoughtfully designed to suit the needs of any business or leisure traveler. The hotel is located at 150 Marina Plaza in Dunedin, FL.
“We are proud to put the ‘Best Western Plus’ sign on our door,” said Mark Harkness, general manager of the Best Western Plus Yacht Harbor Inn. “We offer the great service and value that Best Western is known for, and in addition we overlook picturesque St. Joseph’s Sound, provide access to the open waters of the Gulf of Mexico, and offer the culinary delights of Bon Appétit, Dunedin’s premier waterfront restaurant. The property is just minutes away from the pristine beaches of Honeymoon and Caladesi Islands, as well as exquisite shopping on Dunedin’s Main Street.
