Oceana Resorts' Luxury Property Recognized

Anderson Ocean Club & Spa Named a 2012 Best In Stay Hotel by Orbitz Customers

Anderson Ocean Club & Spa was presented the 2012 Orbitz Best in Stay Award for being the top-rated hotel in the Myrtle Beach market.  The 2012 Orbitz Best In Stay Awards recognize best-in-class hotels in 75 top destinations around the world as well as cream of the crop hotels in seven categories (Value, Luxury, Couples, Eco, LGBT, Ski and All-Inclusive).

“This is such an honor and I owe it all to our great staff," states General Manager, Raymond Harter, CHA. "I am really humbled by this award. I cannot forget Oceana Resorts’ Director of Reservations, Theresa Koren, for her critical role in this relationship. On behalf of the staff and management of Anderson Ocean Club: Thank you, thank you for this award!”

Orbitz Best In Stay Award winners were selected based on the overall numeric score of nearly 200,000 hotel reviews submitted by Orbitz customers that have booked and stayed at hotels since 2011. Customers are asked to rate a variety of hotel attributes on a scale of 1 to 5, including amenities, maintenance, hotel staff, room comfort, location, and value. Those ratings are supplemented by input from nearly 150 Orbitz hotel experts who factor in other market conditions, such as the number of reviews, frequency of booking and reputation of hotel staff. 

“Orbitz applauds the 2012 Best In Stay winners for being best-in-class properties and for offering exemplary service and top-notch facilities to hotel guests,” said Peggy Bianco, group vice president of hotel services for Orbitz. “According to a recent Orbitz Hotel Survey, 70% of respondents said they not only look at reviews when searching for a hotel but trust them.  Whether booking on desktop or a mobile device, Orbitz now offers over one million verified hotel reviews as a resource for our customers to make sure they not only choose a great hotel but the perfect hotel for them. And, the more social media explodes the more we see customers making that choice based on the opinions of other travelers.”
