DoubleTree by Hilton™ West Edmonton

Vancouver, B.C., November 25, 2015 – The DoubleTree by Hilton™ West Edmonton has been voted by readers of Meetings + Incentive Travel magazine as the Best Hotel in Western Canada. The hotel was nominated for the award by past guests who had hosted meetings and conferences at the hotel over the past year. The DoubleTree by Hilton™ West Edmonton beat out 29 premier hotels across Manitoba, Saskatchewan, Alberta and B.C.

“We are extremely honoured to have been voted as the Readers’ Choice for best hotel in Western Canada,” says Steve Giblin, President & CEO of SilverBirch Hotels & Resorts. “We are committed to delivering an exceptional meeting and conference experience and this award demonstrates that we are delivering on that promise. We will continue to operate our hotels and restaurants to the highest standards.”

More than 1,500 people cast their votes for the year’s best Canadian hotels, venues and meeting service suppliers in the magazine’s annual Readers’ Choice Awards. Competing against more than two dozen luxury hotels including Chateau Lacombe and Hotel MacDonald by Fairmont, DoubleTree by Hilton™ West Edmonton was chosen by readers as first in its class, taking home the award for Best Hotel in Western Canada.

“This award is a wonderful achievement, not only because of the quality of our competition – what we consider to be some of the best hotels in the country – but because it was voted on by our guests,” says Grant McCurdy, General Manager of the DoubleTree by Hilton™ West Edmonton. “We want to thank our guests for recognizing our hotel and our associates who are committed to providing an outstanding meeting and conference experience.”.”

The hotel is featured as part of the Readers’ Choice Award Winners section of the November/December edition of Meetings and Incentive Travel magazine, on stands today.
