GREATER FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. - July 2, 2013 - Greater Fort Lauderdale has welcomed 50 Superior Small Lodgings to its "100% club," a prestigious group of properties that achieved the perfect score needed to win the Donal A. Dermody White Glove Award for best housekeeping practices.

Superior Small Lodgings (SSL) are a collection of intimate, high quality properties located throughout the destination that are distinguished by their smaller size, 50 rooms or less, friendly personalized service, affordable prices, comfort and individual character.

To win the White Glove Award, Superior Small Lodgings must score a flawless 100% during housekeeping inspections from the independent Property Review Program. Overall, Greater Fort Lauderdale's 62 Superior Small Lodgings averaged a score of 97.42 percent during housekeeping inspections.

The 50 recipients of the White Glove Award can be found along Greater Fort Lauderdale's 23 miles of Blue Wave-certified beaches in communities including Deerfield Beach, Hillsboro Beach, Pompano Beach, Lauderdale-By-The-Sea, Fort Lauderdale, and Hollywood.

"One size never fits all, and while today's travelers are seeking experiences that come in different shapes and sizes they don't expect to compromise on quality," said Nicki E. Grossman, president of the Greater Fort Lauderdale Convention & Visitors Bureau. "Our Superior Small Lodgings and White Glove Award winners help visitors find the perfect intimate accommodations."
