The Best Western Rose Quartz Inn in Chester has received the Best Western Directors Award for outstanding quality standards. The award recognizes hotels scoring in the top 20 percent of the more than 2,100 North American properties in cleanliness and maintenance. The hotels’ scores must also meet Best Western’s high standards for design and high customer service to qualify for the distinction. “This award is an important symbol of success,” said owner Ghulam Fareed, who acquired the facility last September. “This award confirms our commitment to providing quality accommodations for our guests. Our entire staff has worked hard to achieve this level of excellence.” The hotel features 51 rooms, Wi-Fi, a seasonal spa, exercise equipment, a multi-purpose rec area and conference rooms. Ghulam also owns and operates the Gold Pan Resort and the Union 76 Food Mart and Fuel Star gas stations in Quincy.
