The Inn On Bourbon Recognized as One of Ramada Brand’s Best
(New Orleans, LA – August 2, 2011) - The Inn On Bourbon at 541 Bourbon Street today announced that it has been awarded “The Best of 2011” award by Ramada Worldwide, placing the hotel among the very best that the brand has to offer in its nearly 900 hotel portfolio.
The hotel became eligible for the award after distinguishing itself as a leader among the brand, setting itself apart through outstanding performance in areas such as customer service, revenue generation and overall quality.
“I offer my sincere congratulations to The Inn On Bourbon and its staff on this outstanding achievement,” said Mark Young, Ramada brand senior vice president. “Their continuous commitment to providing guests with unparalleled service and accommodations serves as a testament to the strength and quality of not only their hotel, but to that of the greater Ramada brand.”
The Inn On Bourbon is a 186-room hotel, offering spacious guest rooms with courtyard and Bourbon Street balconies and views. The hotel stands on the site of the French Opera House, a New Orleans landmark built in 1859, but destroyed by fire in 1919. In homage to this cultural link, the hotel hosts monthly opera performances by members of the New Orleans Opera and Bon Operatit. The hotel’s restaurant, Café de l ‘Opera is currently being transformed into world-class dining establishment; later this year, the hotel will also introduce its new Ritz Hotel-trained French chef and an expanded menu. The hotel’s Puccini Bar, located near the lobby, continues to be a popular destination for specialty drinks and French Quarter people-watching through large French doors and windows. For meetings, weddings and special events of all sizes, The Inn On Bourbon offers more than 4,000 square feet of meeting space.
“This is a great honor for our hotel and a direct result of the hard work of our wonderful staff, said Beth Ables, the hotel’s general manager.
