DENVER – January 20, 2016 – Leigh Hitz, president and chief executive officer for Magnolia Hotels, today announced that four properties in the collection are among WeddingWire Couples’ Choice Awards for 2016. Magnolia Hotels in Denver, Houston, St. Louis and downtown Dallas all received this special recognition.

“Our properties have seen a rise in wedding business over the last few years,” said Hitz. “As consumers continue to turn to boutique independent hotels for their travel needs, so do couples getting ready to walk down the aisle. People don’t want a cookie cutter experience for their wedding. They want unique, one-of-a-kind locations that provide that special, individual experience. We were thrilled to see that WeddingWire agrees!”

The WeddingWire Couples’ Choice Awards 2016 recognizes the top five percent of wedding professionals in the WeddingWire Network who demonstrate excellence in quality, service, responsiveness and professionalism. The awards are given to the top local wedding vendors in more than 20 service categories, from wedding venues to wedding florists, based on their professional achievements from the previous year.

While many industry award winners are selected by the host organization, the WeddingWire Couples’ Choice Awards winners are determined solely based on reviews from real newlyweds and their experiences working with Magnolia Hotels. Award-winning vendors are distinguished for the quality, quantity, consistency and timeliness of the reviews they have received from their past clients.

As a Couples’ Choice Awards winner, Magnolia Hotels are highlighted within the WeddingWire Network, which is comprised of more than 400,000 wedding professionals globally.
