HONOLULU, HAWAII — Outrigger Hotels and Resorts has been honored with a TravelAge West 2014 Editor’s Pick Award in the category of Best Hotel Chain, Hawaii, as part of the TravelAge West WAVE (Western Agents’ Votes of Excellence) Awards.
As an Editor’s Pick honoree, Outrigger is now in the running for a WAVE Award, to be determined by a TravelAge West readers’ choice poll conducted during the month of April. The voting is open to readers of the print and online publication, and will be available at www.travelagewest.com/WAVE.
The Editor’s Picks were chosen by Editor-in-Chief Kenneth Shapiro and the entire editorial team of TravelAge West. Review methods included product analysis, on-site visits, a survey of a select group of travel agents and online research.
“As the top travel trade publication in the West, it’s important that TravelAge West acknowledge the suppliers that go above and beyond for travel agents,” said Shapiro. “These awards are a lot of work for our staff, but we remain committed to doing whatever it takes to honor the travel companies that lead the way.”
Editor’s Pick recipients will be celebrated at the WAVE Awards Gala on June 5 at The Beverly Hills Hotel in Beverly Hills, Calif., where the readers’ choice winners will be announced as well.
Now in its ninth year, the goal of TravelAge West’s WAVE (Western Agents’ Vote of Excellence) Awards is to give travel agents in the West the opportunity to recognize the outstanding qualities and services of their travel-supplier partners.
