The Broadmoor hotel’s CEO, Steve Bartolin, was named “Independent Hotelier of the World” by Hotels magazine.
For 30 years, the magazine has presented Hotelier of the World awards. This year, more than 60,000 readers from 150 countries chose the winners.
“I am thrilled Steve Bartolin has won the 2010 Independent Hotelier of the World award,” said Hotels Editor-in-Chief Jeff Weinstein. “I have seen first-hand how much he is truly beloved by his team at The Broadmoor because he is so grounded and sincerely concerned about their lives. He also takes so much pride in keeping The Broadmoor positioned as one of the premier destination resorts in the world, and I appreciate the dedication he shows to his craft. Obviously, his contemporaries feel the same way by voting for him to win this award.”
Earlier this year, The Broadmoor earned its 50th consecutive year of Forbes/Mobil Travel Guide Five Stars, the longest-running winner in the country. Earlier this week, AAA announced that The Broadmoor had received its 2011 Five Diamond designation for the 35th consecutive year.
Bartolin, of course, was pleased with the recognition from HOTELS magazine.
“This is a very nice thing to have happen in one’s career,” Bartolin said in a press release.
“It is especially meaningful that it was voted on by our peers. Suffice it to say that we have a lot of outstanding people at The BROADMOOR who make me look good.”
The corporate hotelier award went to PRS Oberoi of The Oberoi Group in Delhi, India.
