Only 100 hotels in Western U.S., Canada and Mexico chosen

The Coeur d'Alene Resort has been chosen as a 2010 Platinum Choice Award property by Smart Meetings magazine.

"Congratulations to you, your team, and the rest of The Coeur d'Alene family," wrote Carolyn Koenig, editorial director.

Only 100 hotels in the Western U.S., Canada and Mexico are chosen. A special plaque will be displayed at The Coeur d'Alene Resort, made by the same company that creates the Oscar awards.

"We'll make a place of honor for that plaque," said Bill Reagan, general manager of The Coeur d'Alene Resort. "It represents high praise from previous Resort guests, and that means a lot."

Winners earn the recognition by providing the best in ambiance, amenities, facility quality, guest services, meeting space, restaurant and dining facilities, staff attitude, technical support and recreational activities, according to Smart Meetings.

The Platinum Choice Awards are chosen by the publication's readers, who vote for their favorites over a two-month period, with additional input from editors and industry experts.

"This year's winners demonstrated superior effort in a challenging economic environment, which clearly set them apart from their competition in the marketplace," said Marin Bright, founder and publisher.

The elite group of honorees will be celebrated in the December issue of Smart Meetings magazine and on the magazine's website,
