The Pinellas County chapter of the Superior Small Lodging Association recently announced that 33 local boutique hotels have received the statewide organization’s prestigious Donal A. Dermody White Glove Award for housekeeping excellence.

While there are more than 400 hotels, motels, B&Bs, travel lodges, inns, beach houses, resorts and other hospitality destinations in the St. Petersburg/Clearwater area, only 33 local boutique

hotels – or 92 percent of all local SSL members – have earned this year’s highly coveted White Glove Award.

“The White Glove Award is our organization’s highest recognition for housekeeping achievement,” said June Mohns in a press release. Mohns is a leader in the local SSL chapter and proprietor of Island Paradise Cottages of Madeira Beach. “Properties must receive a Total Housekeeping Score of 100 percent in their annual review to receive this award. The Donal A. Dermody White Glove Award recognizes hotel owners who have made outstanding contributions to SSL’s mission and business objective of benchmarking housekeeping excellence and exceptional service.”

The 2013 local White Glove Award winners include seven hotels in Clearwater Beach; six each in Indian Rocks Beach and St. Pete Beach; four in Pass-A-Grille; three in Treasure Island; two in both Dunedin and Madeira Beach; and one hotel each in Gulfport, Indian Shores and Redington Shores.
