Winners announced for The Corporate Traveller Best Hotel Awards
Vilvoorde/Liege – 14 September 2015 – The winners of this year's Corporate Traveller Best Hotel Awards, sponsored by Amadeus, have now been announced by the judges. The Sandton Grand Hotel Reylof, Ghent is to be awarded first place in the Best Hotel Lobby for Corporate Travellers category, while The Hotel Heritage Relais & Château Bruges is the winner of Best Hotel Room for Corporate Travellers.
2015 marks the third edition of the Corporate Traveller Hotel Awards, which were created to showcase the best hotels in Belgium, with the needs of the business travellers specifically in mind. This year, hotels were able to compete in two separate categories of Best Hotel Room or Best Hotel Lobby.
A panel of three independent judges, experts in hotel design, technology and marketing visited the participating hotels and scored them on a range of different criteria, including design quality, originality, comfort and technology. The results of the competition were thus based on the cumulative scores of all the judges. The high quality of the participating hotels meant that the results for the leading places were close. Second place for the Lobby category was won by the Pentahotel City Centre, which won many points for originality. Second place in the hotel room category was awarded to the Radisson Blu, which impressed the judges with the quality of its interior furnishings.
"This year the high quality of the participating hotels made it a pleasure to judge but at the same time also challenging. My congratulations go to winning hotels who definitely know how to please the corporate traveller" said Olaf Leenders of Amadeus."
"This award recognition is a real motivation for us... and certainly as we are a small player amongst all these well-known brands" commented Nancy Vandenberghe of the Sandton Grand Hotel Reylof, winner of the lobby category. "After 4 years walking into this hotel each morning, we still always think 'what a great and beautiful hotel this is to work for'."
"Winning this award for Best Corporate Hotel, for the second time in a row, is an unbelievably beautiful reward for our dedicated hotel and restaurant team" added Johan Creytens, owner and General Manager of the Heritage Hotel. "This award gives us at the Heritage an extra oxygen boost to surpass our boundaries of personal service! "
The two winning hotels will be presented with their awards during a ceremony later this month. Each has won an online advertising campaign with a value of 10,000 euros. More news about the winning hotels will be published in the October edition of The Corporate Traveller Magazine, while regular updates about the Corporate Traveller Hotel Awards can be found at http://www.belgiumsbesthotelroom.be and www.thecorporatetraveller.be
