All the winners at this year’s awards are stars in every sense of the word and shining examples of what New York State hospitality is all about.”
The Outstanding General Manager of the Year award honors an hotelier who has demonstrated superior professionalism and taken a leadership role in the industry by actively participating in association, community or industry programs.
