Conrad Hotels & Resorts winning brand reaps global rewards
November 17, 2007 (PRLEAP.COM) Travel NewsThe global contemporary luxury hotel brand, Conrad Hotels & Resorts, continues to go from strength to strength. Following the brand’s announcements earlier this year of eight hotels under development or conversion, it has also revealed a string of new awards and accolades from across the globe.
Expedia’s Insiders Select List has ranked the Conrad Indianapolis as seventh in its ratings of the top US hotels with spas. Hotels that make the Insiders’ Select List are so exclusive they represent the top one per cent of more than 70,000 hotels on expedia.com. Hotels are judged using Expedia’s 300,000 Traveller Opinions in addition to data and insight from hundreds of employees in destinations throughout the world.
The Conrad Bangkok has been named Best Business Hotel in Bangkok and was recently placed fourth in a poll of the best Asian business hotels by smarttravelasia.com. However, not content with just impressing the business traveller, the Conrad Bangkok’s luxurious Seasons Spa, complete with ozone-treated swimming pool, whirlpool and jogging track, was ranked joint 10th in the Best Spa Hotel in the same poll. The hotel also received a glowing review from Travel + Leisure magazine which awarded an impressive 86.76 out of 100 points, ranking 24th in the list of the top Asian hotels. The same survey ranked the Conrad Hong Kong 10th in the Conference Hotel category. The Conrad Hong Kong was also this month announced as China’s top hotel by readers of Travel + Leisure magazine, China.
In Singapore, the Conrad Centennial Singapore has been presented with the coveted 2007 Singapore Quality Award (SQA) and Service Excellence Award (SE) by SPRING Singapore (Standards, Productivity and Innovation Board), a statutory board under the Ministry of Trade and Industry, the first in SPRING Singapore’s history to award two major accolades to an organisation at the same time.
Richard Blamey, Senior Vice President, Brand Management, said of the awards, “Our guests are the most discerning world travellers. To receive recognition for our quality of service from both guests and the luxury travel industry is testament to our team and the passion and distinction for which they constantly strive.”
Conrad Hotels & Resorts is continuously growing and strengthening its global portfolio and currently has 17 luxury properties in leading urban and resort destinations globally. These include the recently announced Conrad Buenos Aires and the newest signing of the Conrad in Portugal, adjacent to the exclusive Quinta do Lago. This year will also see the exciting addition of the Conrad Maldives Rangali Island to the Conrad portfolio, effective 18 December.
