Iron Horse nabs national award

The Iron Horse Hotel, 500 W. Florida St., was named "Boutique Hotel of the Year" by The Boutique & Lifestyle Lodging Association, Hospitality Design Group and The Nielsen Company.

The Iron Horse Hotel was recognized for the "Boutique Hotel of the Year" award at a luncheon award ceremony today, Sept. 16., in Miami, Fla.

The Iron Horse beat out five other boutique hotels that were also nominated for the award: The Clifton Hotel in Miami Beach, Fla.; The Jupiter Hotel in Portland, Ore.; The Keating Hotel in San Diego, Calif.; The Sedona Rouge Hotel & Spa in Sedona, Ariz.; and the Zazen Boutique Resort & Spa in Thailand.

The Iron Horse won based on six categories: design and architecture, sustainability, food and beverage, customer service, marketing and sales and operational performance.

Love this hotel, I feel like a rock-star when I'm there...and the food is amazing, but I find it hard to believe that the sales & marketing staff could nab a "national award"....this is the most arrogant, un-organized, care-less about you, except for my comission staff I've ever encountered. Ownership should re-evaluate their management if they want to keep that standing.
