SYDNEY, October 2009 – After 52,000 votes and 2,800 nominations, Swissôtel Sydney has been awarded the HotelClub Awards premier accolade of Top 3 Hotels in Australia, New Zealand and Pacific Islands at the 4th HotelClub Hotel Awards ceremony held recently in Sydney. Swissôtel Sydney also walked away with the Best Hotel in New South Wales and Best Hotel in Oceania award, truly deserving the title of ‘one of the most popular hotels within the Oceania region’.

Presented by leading consumer-driven global accommodation website operator, the HotelClub Awards 2009 reflects demands of the industry, recognising Best Hotels and Resorts in Australia, New Zealand and the Pacific Islands region, as well as top hotels in each Australian state and territory, New Zealand and the Pacific Islands. First presented in 2006, the HotelClub Awards are driven by travellers with firsthand experience and are based on an accumulation of world-wide consumer votes who select their choice of best hotels in Australia, New Zealand and the Pacific Islands.

Said Wayne Horbach, General Manager of Swissôtel Sydney, “We are deeply honoured to have received such an outstanding award not only for Australia but also the Oceania region. This award is especially significant to us as the votes have come from our guests and it is gratifying to know that they recognise our efforts and our unrelenting commitment to excellence.”

“I am extremely proud of my team for living up to the Swissôtel Hotels & Resorts’ credo of ‘A Passion for Perfection’ and we look forward to sharing our warm Swiss hospitality with many more guests in the coming years,” he adds.

Winners are decided entirely by consumers through an online global survey on the website based on the following criteria: ambience, family friendliness, rooms, restaurants, cleanliness, business facilities, location, leisure facilities, staff attitude and value for money.
