Drury Hotels is recognized as a J.D. Power 2014 Customer Champion

Drury Hotels has been recognized as a 2014 Customer Champion-one of 50 companies to have earned this distinction this year.

To qualify for inclusion on this elite list, companies must excel, not only within their own industry, but also among the 9 industries included in the Customer Champions analysis by J.D. Power. To determine the J.D. Power 2014 Customer Champions, J.D. Power examined five factors, including: People, Presentation, Process, Product, and Price.

For the 2014 Customer Champions, J.D. Power evaluated more than 600 brands. The 2014 Champions were identified based on customer feedback, opinions, and perceptions gathered primarily from J.D. Power’s syndicated research in 2013. This group of 50 represents the highest-performing U.S. companies that deliver service excellence—both within their respective industry and across 9 industries measured.
