Team Jacobs weren't the only locals to take the gold

Monday, February 24, 2014   by: Staff



Team Q cheered on Team Jacobs and their win for gold at the 2014 Sochi Olympics while also conducting a celebration of their own.

Comfort Suites & Quattro Conference Centre was recipient of the 2014 Choice Gold Award.

The only Choice Hotel in Northern Ontario to receive this prestigious certification.

Winner of this award exceeded Choice Hotels' standards for Customer Service, Housekeeping and Product Quality.

Recipients are among the top hotels in the Choice Canada family of brands and these awards are a clear demonstration of a hotel’s operational strength.

The news came to the delight of the Staff, Owners, Management Team and new General Manager, Mike Braykovich.

“This is truly great recognition for all of us and most importantly, it’s a reflection of our genuine desire to make our guests stay more comfortable and more enjoyable. Congrats to Team Q!”

Comfort Suites has taken great strides to determine what makes our guests happy.

Inclusive of obtaining honest customer feedback through using various forms of social media, online surveys, trip advisor and other travel advisory sites, direct discussions and even winter travel to Northern Ontario destinations.

Transforming the feedback into guest satisfaction beyond expectations.

A venue that includes Quattro Conference Centre, the largest conference centre in Northern Ontario.

Quattro Chophouse + Bar, one of the top ranked restaurants in Sault Ste. Marie. Incredible amenities and full service onsite spa - Greenhouse Spa.

The Gold Award Ranking accompanies an overall ranking of 13th amongst 233 Choice Properties - Midscale Brands in Canada and the Second highest ranking in Ontario.

Winning an award such as this is a true testament to the hard work and dedication of the entire Q Family – including all of our Staff, Owners, General Manager & Management Team.

We accept the Gold and we will wear it proudly.

Quattro is one of my fav. restaurants. Congrats!!!!

And the title is not misleading, it was very clever in my opinion. It does not diminish anything done by Jacobs.

Too bad abut the scoffer's who comment on here...Haters gonna hate!

coincidentally, the last 2 times I was dining at Quattro. I saw members of Team Jacobs eating there.

Hello happy posters!

Settle down ya'll, SooToday came up with the title, not Quattro nor the hotel, because that's what writers do, come up with titles for things.

We were not in any way trying to diminish what Team Jacobs has accomplished.

Carry on...

PS- @christmas needs a little time-out so those comments have been deleted. The all caps was too hard on the eyes. Not to mention the tin-foil hat required to understand the posts.

wow you negative commenters go home - stay home - be in the dark and stay there- good for Comfort Suites !

Way to go Comfort Suites!! It is great to see that a local hotel has won this award!! Hospitality/Tourism is one of our biggest industries here in Sault Ste. Marie.......maybe even 2nd to Essar!! We are noted for our fantastic hospitality, so keep the positive comments flowing and bury the negative ones!!!!

I'd like to try this place out! Did someone have a blow out with this article or headline? Personally I like the news flash articles on here so keep them coming!
PS..We're from a Gold Medal town so bring on the Gold references, keeping it alive YES....

What is it with this need to over adulate and over glorify? They're not sacred and their victory did not eliminate crime, starvation, poverty, and oppression from the world. Team Jacobs won gold! Good for them, good for Canada, and good for our morale during a long, typically brutal winter in Sault Ste. Marie. But cancer, heart disease, strokes, other diseases and death live on folks, so give your heads a shake. Team Jacobs worked hard at their craft to achieve what they achieved as do so many other people in many other remarkable fields of endeavour. Fields of endeavour might I add that have a far greater and meaningful impact on our lives than winning gold at the Olympics. So those of you who somehow feel slighted at the sacrilegious connection of gold to gold in this article need to get over yourselves. True champions that they are, I'm sure that the members of Team Jacobs are not offended and nor should you. Remember, you had absolutely nothing to do with their victory. They did it all on their own with the usual network of support that most people who excel have.

Your comment cracked me up. Especially loved the tin foil hat comment, so true! lol

Hard work, dedication, teamwork and desire to be number one - that is how gold medals are won. The Soo has fantastic ambassadors in Team Jacob and Team Q. You should be proud!
rsdemarchi 2/26/2014 9:15:04 AM Report

PLEASE, let's not diminish the accomplishments of any local successes! It's not as if we're tripping all over them these days. Good on both Team Jacobs and Team Q. We're very proud of both of you.
