FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
ARCOLA, ILLINOIS. – The Green Mill Village development is proud to announce the Grand Opening of the BEST WESTERN PLUS Green Mill Village Hotel & Suites, Saturday, January 12, 2013 from 2:00pm-5:00pm. The communities are invited to enjoy refreshments and tours of the newly opened hotel, plus participate in the opportunity to win a free weekend stay & artwork from local artist Richard Herschberger that is featured in the hotel guest rooms and public areas.
“Green Mill Village serves as the gateway to central Illinois Amish Country and opening this hotel will be extremely lucrative for both Arcola and the surrounding communities,” stated Cassie Yoder, who handles the marketing for Green Mill Village. “This site holds a lot of promise to bring together destination and regional travelers and having the hotel open is a great start to the New Year.”
Earning the “BEST WESTERN PLUS” descriptor from the World’s Biggest Hotel Familysm, indicates an upper midscale hotel with well- appointed rooms with modern amenities, and an enhanced level of comfort and value for guests looking to get the most out of their stay. The new descriptors, launched in 2010, give Best Western hotels the opportunity to earn the “BEST WESTERN PLUS” designation by meeting very specific design and amenity guidelines.
“Every Best Western is different and being a PLUS is a very notable recognition not just for Arcola, but for this region,” said General Manager, Christine Cloyd. “What many people don’t know is that hotels that earn ‘PLUS’ descriptor have a 3-Diamond rating from AAA, and offer little things that make tourist and business travelers repeat customers to this area.”
With 68 guestrooms decorated with local artwork from Rich Herschberger Gallery and furniture throughout the hotel from Simply Amish, these are just a few of the differences you will find at this hotel when compared to other hotels in the area. Plus, there is convenient guest services such as Free Wireless High-Speed Internet Access, Free Daily Hot Breakfast, Free Daily Local Newspaper, Free Local Phone Calls, Free Parking and Fitness Center, plus features over 4,000 square feet of flexible meeting and banquet space. The BEST WESTERN PLUS Green Mill Village Hotel & Suites is thoughtfully designed to suit the needs of any leisure or business traveler. The hotel is located at 917 Green Mill Road in Arcola, Illinois and has easy on and off access to I-57.
