The Iowa Tourism Office and the Travel Federation of Iowa presented 27 awards recognizing excellence in the tourism industry last week in Fairfield during the 2015 Iowa Tourism Conference. The Jay Hartz received an award for leadership and the Hotel Pattee received an award for niche marketing efforts.
Jay Hartz with his wife Denise purchased the Hotel Pattee in 2013. Over the past nearly two years Jay Hartz has steadily worked not only to promote the Hotel Pattee but to also promote other area businesses and attractions. Through collaborative efforts and ingenuity, Jay Hartz is an excellent example of community leadership.
