Quality Inn & Suites gets platinum award

The Quality Inn & Suites at Olympic National Park hotel, 134 River Road, was recently honored with a 2019 Platinum Award from Choice Hotels International, Inc., franchisor of the Quality Inn brand.

The Platinum Award designation goes to the top 3 percent of hotels within the brand. Award criteria are evaluated by Choice Hotels through its official property ranking reports.

Quality Inn General Manager Nancy Merrigan accepted the award during a recent gala dinner at the Mandalay Bay Hotel and Conference Center in Las Vegas, Nev.

It’s the third year in a row the Sequim hotel has received the award.

“I’m so proud of my staff; they do an amazing job providing a clean, safe and welcoming environment,” Merrigan said. “It’s no wonder guests return every year.”

Merrigan said future plans for her hotel include more Olympic National Park theme rooms, a fully stocked pantry for the lobby and additional pet friendly promotions.
