Wingate by Wyndham Altoona Receives Quality of the Year Award

The Wingate by Wyndham Altoona Downtown/Medical Center has been awarded the coveted Wingate by Wyndham Quality Hotel of the Year award at the 2019 Wyndham Global Conference in Las Vegas. To be eligible for the award, which is given annually to only one property, the property must pass its quality assurance evaluations with outstanding marks in all categories, including both service and cleanliness, provide high levels of customer service and receive exception customer comments. 

While every Wingate by Wyndham property is committed to achieving stringent quality standards, those hotels which consistently exceed the expectations of the guests can be recognized for this award. 

“We are committed to providing memorable accommodation experiences that exceed guest expectations. This is a great honor for our hotel and a direct result of the continued hard work of our wonderful staff,” said Jason Penkacik, General Manager of the Wingate by Wyndham Altoona. 

“To be recognized by the Wingate brand as the Quality Hotel of the Year for our properties superior quality and service is a tremendous honor,” said Edward Tubbs, Chief Operating Officer for Hospitality Asset Management Company who operates the hotel for local investors.
