The Howard Johnson by Wyndham Portsmouth was recently recognized with a “Best of Award” from Wyndham Hotels & Resorts. The newly renovated hotel in Portsmouth is managed by Olympia Hotel Management. 

The Wyndham Best of Awards are given annually to an elite group of hotels. Award criteria is based upon three areas: hotel quality, guest feedback and Wyndham Rewards compliance. Teams from these hotels strive to embody the spirit of hospitality.

“We are honored to be recognized,” says General Manager Tyrone Fields. “This is only our second year being part of the Howard Johnson brand, so it’s really an honor to be internationally recognized by Wyndham Hotels & Resorts.”

Howard Johnson by Wyndham Portsmouth offers 61 guest rooms, each featuring work space, a mini-refrigerator, a microwave and a flat-screen TV with HBO. The hotel offers a business center, fitness center and free high-speed Wi-Fi. Ample free parking is available onsite.

“For me, this award is about my staff," says Fields. “I’m really big on culture and making sure this is a fun place to work. We’re a smaller hotel and only have 10 employees here at any given time, so it’s a major award for our team who strive to deliver outstanding service every single day.”

Located less than four miles from Portsmouth International Airport (PSM) and right off of I-95, Howard Johnson by Wyndham Portsmouth is close to downtown and the famous Decks, with the open-air bars along the water’s edge. Also close by are The Kittery Outlets, Water Country Water Park and York’s Wild Animal Kingdom.

On September 1, over 1,500 businesses across the country illuminated their buildings with red lights to draw attention to the devastation that the live events and performance art industries have faced as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic.
