(STL.News) – DiamondRock Hospitality Company (the “Company”) (NYSE: DRH) today announced that its Havana Cabana Resort has been named #3 in the Top Ten Resort Hotels in Florida in Travel + Leisure’s World’s Best Awards 2019.

The World’s Best Awards is an award program run by Travel + Leisure. Each year, readers are asked to weigh in on travel experiences and rate hotels based on facilities, location, service, food, and overall value.
