The National Conference Center in Lansdowne has been recognized by the Virginia Restaurant, Lodging & Travel Association with two top industry awards.
The National was recognized as Hotel of the Year, and General Manager Geoff Lawson was named Hotelier of the Year.
The awards were presented during the VRLTA Awards banquet last week. The 2017 Ordinary Awards featured 16 individual and organizational awards across four primary categories. Each award given demonstrates exemplary passion for the hospitality and travel industry.
“These very prestigious awards recognize the tremendous performance of each and every team member in delivering exceptional hospitality to our guests and our communities,” said Chief Sales and Marketing Officer Chuck Ocheltree. “We are fortunate to have the leader that we have in Geoff Lawson as well as the amazing team that works with our guests every day. What makes this two-award recognition so special is the understanding that you cannot have one without the other—great leadership leads to great hospitality and great hospitality results in Hotel of the Year. We are excited to share this recognition with our associates and within our vast communities.”
The awards are the latest in a string of honors for The National this year. During its recent winning streak, The National has received eight other industry awards including from Visit Loudoun, Loudoun County Public Schools, Smart Meetings magazine, Corporate & Incentive Travel magazine, the Northstar Meeting Group and Meetings Today magazine.
