The Certificate of Excellence Hall of Fame is a new recognition from TripAdvisor - this unique accolade is granted only to those businesses that have won the Certificate of Excellence consistently since its inception five years in ago. The Certificate of Excellence Award celebrates excellence in hospitality and is given only to establishments that constantly achieve great traveler reviews on TripAdvisor, consistently providing superior customer service. To qualify a hotel must maintain an overall TripAdvisor bubble rating of at least 4 out of 5, have a minimum number of new reviews and be listed on TripAdvisor for at least 12 months. "TripAdvisor is pleased to honor exceptional hospitality businesses that have received consistent praise and recognition by travelers on the site," said Marc Charron, President, TripAdvisor for Business. "By putting a spotlight on businesses that are focused on delivering great service to customers, TripAdvisor not only helps drive an improvement to hospitality standards around the world, it also gives businesses both large and small the ability to shine and stand out from the competition."
