STEAMBOAT SPRINGS, CO- May 13, 2010-The Steamboat Grand was recognized as one of the top-ranked properties by Expedia when it was named as a 2010 Insider’s Select™ hotel

“We are always thrilled to be recognized by industry leaders for our commitment to quality” said Michael Lomas, vice president and general manager of The Steamboat Grand. “This is an especially high honor since our selection was based on customer reviews. This recognition is a reflection of the dedication, exceptional service levels and experience of each and every employee at the hotel.”

The Expedia Insiders’ Select list is an annual award recognizing the best hotels available in Expedia’s global marketplace, as judged by the experiences of Expedia customers. The Steamboat Grand was selected based on more than one million hotel reviews submitted by Expedia travelers that identified the hotel as consistently delivering superior service, an exceptional guest experience and notable value. The Steamboat Grand is among a small percentage of the top-ranked hotels named to the Insider’s Select list, from more than 110,000 properties offered globally across Expedia sites.

“It’s the total vacation experience that Steamboat provides, including all aspects of our community, which sets us apart,” continued Lomas. “The Steamboat Grand carries on the values of the town with genuine friendliness and the highest expectation for quality, which leaves guests with a unique experience they are enthusiastic about sharing with others.”

The Steamboat Grand features 328 beautifully appointed guestroom accommodations, offering a variety of hotel rooms, one-, two-, three-bedroom suites and eight luxurious penthouses; family-friendly, award winning dining under the direction of executive chef Erik Hyslop; full-service day spa and fitness center; an outdoor heated pool and two large whirlpool spas as well as 17,000 sq. ft of indoor/outdoor convention space.

In addition to the Expedia award, the Steamboat Grand was also honored this month by Orbitz as a 2010 Best In Stay Hotel in North America. Since its opening nearly a decade ago, the property has been recognized by a number of outlets around the globe for its service, quality and overall experience including Conde Nast Traveler (Top 50 Ski Hotels in North America and 700 Best Places to Stay in the World) and Wine Spectator (Award of Excellence).
