Comfort Suites Paradise Island, which is franchised by Choice Hotels International, Inc. (NYSE: CHH) is aiming to build on a record-breaking year in 2015, according to its founder and senior managing partner William Naughton.
 
Speaking at the Caribbean Travel Marketplace on Paradise Island earlier this year, Naughton described last year as “spectacular”.
 
“In fact, 2015 was the best year since I built this Comfort Suites property 24 years ago. For the first time ever, we had eight consecutive months of 90 per cent-plus occupancy. We had the best September and October, which are usually the two softest months of the year, since I built the hotel.”


The Bahamas hotelier attributes the success to the $8 million spent on refurbishment, the expansion of its product and, specifically, its food and beverage offering. 
 
The hotel received the Best New Partner of the Year Caribbean designation from Expedia +VIP Access™ during a presentation on Paradise Island in January 2016. The Expedia +VIP Access™ designation recognizes hotels that score highest on member satisfaction scores.

A team of tourism officials has returned to The Bahamas following a trip to Los Angeles where officials hosted several promotional events. Watch a ZNS Network news report here.
