Butterworth added that she hopes to use this award as an encouragement to receive the Torchbearer Award this coming year, IHG’s most prestigious honor.

Along with the IHG Winning Metrics Award, the hotel also won the Gold Award through for maintaining high ratings within the brand.

The hotel was rated by 851 guests and received an outstanding score of 4.9 out of 5 to claim the honor.

“I am very proud to be amongst such a great staff that cares about each guest and ensuring they have a fantastic stay while they are here in the Tri-State area,” Butterworth said.

In addition to the two hotel awards, Butterworth was named 2015 Salesperson of the Year at the annual Holiday Inn general manager conference in Trinity, Florida.

“Our company has a multitude of talent among the brand, so it was a great honor to be recognized for this award,” she said. “It takes a village to achieve great accomplishments, and I am thrilled to be a part of such a wonderful community of citizens here in Ironton.”
