NAPLES, Fla. - Hilton Naples and Shula's Steak House, located inside the hotel, today announced that each has received a TripAdvisor® Certificate of Excellence award. The accolade, which honors hospitality excellence, is given only to establishments that consistently achieve outstanding traveler reviews on TripAdvisor, and is extended to qualifying businesses worldwide. Establishments awarded the Certificate of Excellence are located all over the world and represent the upper echelon of businesses listed on the website.

"Our 2014 TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence awards are very special to our entire team at the Hilton Naples and Shula's Steak House because they are a validation of how well we cared for and served our guests," said Clark Hill, general manager of the Hilton Naples. "We thank our past hotel and dining guests who took the time to complete a review on TripAdvisor, since there is no greater seal of approval than being recognized by one's customers."

When selecting Certificate of Excellence winners, TripAdvisor uses a proprietary algorithm to determine the honorees that takes into account reviews ratings. Businesses must maintain an overall TripAdvisor bubble rating of at least four out of five, volume and recency of reviews. Additional criteria include a business' tenure and popularity ranking on the site. "TripAdvisor is pleased to honor exceptional hospitality businesses for consistent excellence," said Marc Charron, President of TripAdvisor for Business. "The Certificate of Excellence award gives top performing establishments around the world the recognition they deserve, based on feedback from those who matter most - their customers. We want to applaud exceptional hospitality businesses for offering TripAdvisor travellers a great customer experience."
