In August 2011 at the annual Hospitality Design show in Miami, the Boutique & Lifestyle Lodging Association (BLLA) awards top honors to hotels for their excellence in six important categories: Design & Architecture, Sustainability, Food & Beverage, Customer Service, Marketing & Sales and Operational Performance. Company B completed the extensive applications for The Iron Horse Hotel in the “Boutique” category, Hotel Andaluz in the “Lifestyle Hotel” category and Iron Horse owner Tim Dixon for “Hotelier of the Year.”
For the second consecutive year, The Iron Horse Hotel was named “Boutique Hotel of the Year.” The judges named Hotel Andaluz second place in this same category. And, adding to the prestige, Dixon was named BLLA’s 2011 top hotelier. How nice to pack three Swarovski crystal awards in our luggage!
