Mount Vernon Grand Hotel Presented with Heart Award

January 20, 2016 - 1:01 AM

MOUNT VERNON, Ohio — The Mount Vernon Grand Hotel, owned and operated by Mount Vernon Nazarene University, was presented with the Heart Award at the 2015 Knox County Chamber of Commerce Meeting on Jan. 8, 2016. The Heart Award, sponsored by Critchfield, Critchfield, & Johnston, is given for achievement in building and maintaining architectural design that complements the Knox County community.

Tina Cockrell, the Program Coordinator for The Knox County Chamber of Commerce, praised The Mount Vernon Grand Hotel for its replication of the original structure. Cockrell said the hotel, "keeps the Victorian feel that the Curtis Inn hosted in Mount Vernon for many years prior."

Construction of The Mount Vernon Grand Hotel began in November of 2014 after demolition of the Curtis Inn, and was completed in August of 2015. The five-story, Victorian hotel includes 46 rooms, a parlor, and a winding staircase.

Cockrell explained the process of distributing the Heart Award began in September of 2015. She said, "Ambassadors and the Board of Trustees reviewed all nominations" and announced the recipient at the Annual Dinner and Awards Ceremony.

The management and staff of The Mount Vernon Grand Hotel, CUSA LLC, and MVNU expressed their gratitude for the award.

"We are beyond grateful to the Knox County community for awarding us with this year's Heart Award."
