CINCINNATI -  Hilton Cincinnati Netherland Plaza is pleased to announce that Doorman Jonathan Cody has been awarded Pinnacle Award for Outstanding Service by the Cincinnati USA Convention and Visitor's Bureau. The Pinnacle Award honors individuals on the front line of hospitality industry who set an example for others by their excellent customer service. These individuals go above and beyond call of duty. Nominees are the leaders on the front lines and those behind the scenes that have helped Cincinnati USA forge ahead by bringing in new business, earning national acclaim, and ushering in progress. Nominations can be submitted by managers, co-workers, customers and others.

Cody, a 14-year veteran at the hotel, was nominated by Nelson Broadus, Assistant Human Resources Director, because of his consistent and courteous service. "We've received several letters complimenting him on his service. We received a letter explaining how Jon went ‘above and beyond' to assist a guest who was ill. After talking to the guest, who is a regular at the hotel, Jon found out she wasn't feeling well. Jon arranged to have hot tea delivered to her room. The guest was elated!"

Michel Sheer, Managing Director of Hilton Cincinnati Netherland Plaza, is very proud of Jon's achievement, "This award and recognition by the Convention and Visitors Bureau was not a surprise to any of us who have had the chance to work directly with Jon. He is professional, gracious, warm and hospitable. Jon has a strong interest in people as evidenced by the number of guests who write to tell us about their ongoing relationship with Jon from their continuing visits to the Netherland Plaza."
