Chesapeake Bay Maritime Museum earns TripAdvisor 2015 Certificate of Excellence

The Chesapeake Bay Maritime Museum today announced it has received a TripAdvisor 2015 Certificate of Excellence award. Now in its fifth year, the award celebrates excellence in hospitality and is given only to establishments that consistently achieve great traveler reviews on TripAdvisor. Certificate of Excellence winners include accommodations, eateries, and attractions located all over the world that have continually delivered superior guest experiences.

CBMM_TripAdvisor2015When selecting Certificate of Excellence winners, TripAdvisor uses a proprietary algorithm that takes into account the quality, quantity, and recency of reviews and opinions submitted by travelers on TripAdvisor over a 12-month period, as well as the businesses tenure and ranking on the site’s Popularity Index. To qualify, businesses must maintain an overall TripAdvisor bubble rating of at least four out of five, have a minimum number of reviews, and must have been listed on TripAdvisor for at least 12 months.

“Our staff and volunteers consider this recognition a true source of endorsement for all our work, especially in the Museum’s 50th year,” said CBMM President Kristen Greenaway. “We’re grateful to our guests who took the time to review the museum on TripAdvisor. This is a remarkable vote of confidence in our delivering an exceptional guest experience.”

“TripAdvisor is pleased to honor exceptional hospitality businesses that have received consistent praise and recognition by travelers on the site,” said Marc Charron, President of TripAdvisor for Business. “By putting a spotlight on businesses that are focused on delivering great service to customers, TripAdvisor not only helps drive increasing hospitality standards around the world, it also gives businesses both large and small the ability to shine and stand out from the competition.”
