I am unable to attend the Hotel of The Year Awards Gala Ceremony, can I still register and participate in the Awards this year?
I have not heard of the Hotel of The Year Awards before, please confirm advantages of participation?
Answer :The Hotel of The Year Awards were created to offer hotels the opportunity to enter their hotel and spa for an award that is judged by professionally trained inspectors that will experience, record and score each hotel based on a pure guest experience. We feel that sometimes awards that involve securing votes or mass recommendations can often lead to bigger hotels securing more awards just based on numbers. We feel passionately that every hotel guest should be treated like a VIP and this encourages hotels to offer this level of service to all its guests. We also think that a professionally trained inspector/judge can give a very balanced and fair review of a hotel and its facilities as they have the experience and knowledge from visiting hundreds of luxury hotels Worldwide, very similar to the way that the Michelin guide awards stars to restaurants worldwide by sending highly trained inspectors to judge and award based on years of experience and professional training.
