10323066_577893195652067_614242837_nElkins, West Virginia – May 20, 2014 – The American Mountain Theater, a live music & comedy variety show in Elkins, West Virginia, today announced that it 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.

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.

“We are truly honored to receive this distinguished award for the second consecutive year. We love what we do and are glad that our audiences do, too,” said Meggan Sexton, VP of Operations for the theater. “We’d like to thank all of our past guests who took the time to complete a review on TripAdvisor, and we’d like to encourage others who have never visited our theater to give it a try. Both the team at the American Mountain Theater and our past guest reviews guarantee that you’ll have a great time. There is no greater seal of approval than being recognized by one’s customers. With the TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence based on customer reviews, the accolade is a remarkable vote of confidence to our business and our continued commitment to excellence.”

“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. From Australia to Zimbabwe, we want to applaud exceptional hospitality businesses for offering TripAdvisor travelers a great customer experience.”
