(May 8, 2015) La Quinta Inn and Suites on 32nd Street won Best New Construction during the hotel chain’s annual national conference and awards held in Orlando in March.
“We won out of all the new La Quintas on the east coast, which encompasses the New England and Mid-Atlantic regions,” Sal Fasano, owner of the 32nd Street location said.
A best new construction award was given to a La Quinta on the west coast as well.
On Tuesday, La Quinta held an open house and ribbon cutting for chief officers, company executives and community members who could not make it to the wintertime grand opening, complete with a tour of the rooms and outdoor pool area.
“Its good publicity and we are hoping to have a good turnout since it’s supposed to be a nice day,” Fasano said.
Fasano said La Quinta has increasingly become busier as the summer months come rolling in.
“It’s been steady during the week and we have been selling out on the weekends,” he said. “We’ve had positive reviews on all trip sites and part of that has to do with guests being able to bring pets. It’s been great so far and we are eagerly awaiting the summer.”
Ocean City’s newest hotel opened in late November and its 101 guest rooms feature plush bedding with a choice of a king or two queen beds.
The hotel is nonsmoking and pet friendly, and also has 26 deluxe rooms and suites with full kitchens and living room areas with a pull out sleeper sofa.
