The Woodlands (Houston), Texas, August 2015… Benchmark Hospitality International, a leading U.S.-based hospitality management company, has announced that two of its properties have received the prestigious Pinnacle Award from readers of Successful Meetings, a leading national trade magazine based in New York City.  The two properties include Eaglewood Resort & Spa, a Benchmark Resort located in Chicago, and the Villas of Grand Cypress, a Personal Luxury Resort in Orlando.  This is the seventh win for Eaglewood Resort & Spa and the 10th win for the Villas of Grand Cypress.  Ted Davis, chief sales & marketing officer, made the announcement.

“We are extremely proud of Eaglewood Resort & Spa and the Villas of Grand Cypress,” said Mr. Davis.  “To be recognized in this way is especially meaningful as the Pinnacle Award is voted on by readers of the magazine, who are our customers.”

For over 30 years, Successful Meetings’ Pinnacle Award has earned a reputation as one of the most credible and prestigious symbols of excellence among meeting professionals and travel suppliers alike.  Readers of Successful Meetings - professionals who are decision makers for planning meetings, events, conferences, and incentive programs - voted for the winners of the Pinnacle Awards via online ballots and provided feedback based on their professional experiences worldwide for the top hotels and conference centers. All winners are listed in Successful Meetings' annual Pinnacle Registry, published in the magazine’s August issue and online.
