Perth’s Ingot Hotel (Ascend Hotel Collection™) and Japan’s Comfort Hotel Nagoya Meieki Minami have both been recognised with prestigious 2024 “Best of Choice” Awards announced at the Choice Hotels International, Inc. 68th Annual Convention in Las Vegas.

The announcement follows both properties being awarded Hotel of the Year honours at the recent Choice Hotels Asia-Pac 2023 Awards dinner held in late February. The Best of Choice Award is an international honour recognising outstanding operators across each of the group’s brands: Ascend Hotel collection, Clarion, Quality and Comfort.

Choice Hotels Asia-Pac CEO Trent Fraser said he was extremely proud to celebrate Comfort Hotel Nagoya Meieki Minami & Ingot Hotel Perth’s win on a global stage. The Choice Hotel Asia-Pac team and both award winners were present to receive and celebrate the win in Las Vegas.

“This is an extremely proud moment for the Choice Hotels Asia-Pac team to see Comfort Hotel Nagoya Meieki Minani awarded the Best of Choice 2024, as this is the first time a hotel from Japan has been included in the awards for selection” Trent Fraser says.

“The Ingot Hotel Perth continues to be a shining star in our network, this is the second time the Ascend Hotel Collection property has been awarded a Best of Choice Award” Mr. Fraser adds.

General Manager of Ingot Hotel Perth, Paul Rogers, says the award is a testament to the excellence his team aspires to every day.

“With 214 guest rooms and suites, the Ingot Hotel Perth is the largest property in Choice Hotels Asia-Pac Australian portfolio,” Mr Rogers says. “This comes with great responsibility, and to have our professionalism rewarded on the international stage by our Choice Hotels colleagues makes this recognition all the more sweet.”

President & Director of Choice Hotels Japan Takeya Muraki says the global nature of the award is particularly meaningful.

“Comfort Hotel Nagoya Meieki Minami has achieved a very high level of customer satisfaction among the Comfort brand in Japan,” Takeya Muraki says.

“With a customer satisfaction score of 8.71 out of 10, the property’s service excellence has already won the trust of many repeat guests. To be further recognised by the international Choice Hotels family will only inspire us to further greatness.”

Representing a tremendous accomplishment, the accolades are awarded to the top hotels within Choice Hotels’ domestic and international portfolio. As two of the top-tier properties operating under their respective Ascend Hotel Collection and Comfort Hotel flags, the award-winning hotels have each demonstrated exceptional focus on guest satisfaction and dedication to superior service. Award criteria are evaluated by Choice Hotels through its official property ranking reports.
