Palisade hotel makes Expedia list of top properties

Count the Wine Country Inn in Palisade among the top-ranked hotels from around the world included on an annual list compiled by the Expedia online travel agency.

Only 500 of the more than 130,000 hotels featured on Expedia Web sites are included on the Expedia Insiders Select list.

“Delivering our guests superior service is a top priority at the Wine Country Inn,” said Jerome Strack, general manager. “We are pleased that our efforts have been acknowledged by Expedia travelers and we look forward to extending our high level of service to even more guests.”

The Wine Country Inn ranked 78th among the top 100 hotels on the list and was one of only two Colorado properties among the 100.

The Expedia Insiders Select program is designed to help travelers select accommodations by identifying hotels recognized by other travelers for delivering quality services. Hotels on the list are designated by a special logo. The list is compiled by a weighted mathematical formula that takes into account guest reviews, a value rating that compares hotels in the same area with the same star ratings and insights from Expedia employees. The most weight is given to the more than 500,000 reviews collected after guests complete stays at hotels booked through Expedia.

Located in the middle of a vineyard in the middle of the winegrape growing region of the Grand Valley, the Wine Country Inn offers 80 guest rooms as well as amenities and services for a variety of events. For more information, call 464-5777 or visit
