NORTH CHARLESTON, SC -- (Marketwired) -- 06/11/14 -- Contrary to popular belief, awards were not created just to give fashion houses a red-carpet catwalk. Rather the best of them alert the world to achievements made within a given industry that might otherwise go unnoticed. In the case of the Fairfield Inn & Suites Charleston Airport/Convention Center, those achievements are making real impacts both on property and within the community. And the results of its most recent brand conference are ensuring that everyone takes notice.
One of the most notable awards this Charleston Airport hotel took home was the Bruce Reed Rally to Serve Award. Bestowed upon just one out of more than 700 Fairfield Inn & Suites properties, the honor reflects the hotel's above-and-beyond efforts at collaborative work. The property reached out to every Fairfield Inn & Suites in the Lowcounty to work as one team that built a house for Habitat for Humanity, an organization that creates quality housing for families in need.
The property's support of Habitat for Humanity is part of a company-wide program known as "Hospitality at Home." Designed to enlist the support of associates, owners, franchisees and even guests, Hospitality at Home engenders a number of different programs that benefit Habitat for Humanity. Some of the biggest contributions happen during special events and major company conferences whereby new guest-room furnishings are donated to the organization. Hotel refurbishments, meanwhile, usually result in donations of guest room furnishings that Habitat Restores can resell in their local markets and fund local Habitat construction.
Few hotels in North Charleston, SC can match this property when it comes to philanthropic work. Not only did the hotel earn the Bruce Reed Rally to Serve Award, it also took home the CMN Hotel of the Year award for its brand. This honor distinguishes the hotel as being the top fundraising property among Fairfield Inn & Suites for Children's Miracle Network.
But the community isn't the only group this hotel helps. Boasting attentive service, numerous amenities and some of the most comfortable hotel rooms in North Charleston, SC, the hotel is ideal for families, extended-stay guests and corporate travelers. And visitors know it. Their survey scores with regard to guest services helped catapult the property to a position within the top 20 percent of all Fairfield Inn & Suites, earning it a coveted Silver Performance Award.
From guest experiences to community outreach, the awards this property received point to its outstanding record of service. And that's more impressive than any red-carpet fashion show.

In the rush to compete in the digital age, a successful digital transformation is essential, but many organizations are setting themselves up for failure. There’s a common misconception that the process is just about technology, but it’s not. It’s about your business. It shouldn’t be treated as an isolated IT project; it should be driven by business needs with the committed involvement of a range of stakeholders.
