Swissôtel The Stamford, Singapore, garnered a string of prestigious international awards last week - Asia Pacific’s “Best Business Hotel” in the BT-MICE Awards Category of the 21st TTG Travel Awards 2010, its second consecutive win, as well as the Luxury Hotel & Conference Centre (Global Winner) award and Overall Winner in the World Luxury Hotel Awards 2010. The glittering awards ceremonies were held on 7 and 8 October in Bangkok and Hua Hin, Thailand respectively.

With these wins, Swissôtel The Stamford joins an elite company of individuals and stellar organisations which were honoured at these two distinctive events that are major highlights in both the travel trade and luxury hotel circuits.

The annual TTG Travel Awards, organised by TTG Asia Media, is widely acknowledged to be one of the travel and hospitality industry’s most influential awards in the region, recognising some of the industry’s finest representatives that have consistently shown strong commitment towards service excellence.

The World Luxury Hotel Awards, positioned as the pinnacle of achievement for luxury hotels worldwide, set the benchmark for five-star luxury hotels in achieving recognition for their world-class facilities and unsurpassed service standards. It recognises hotels that have gone the extra mile and transcended from being "good hotels" to becoming "exceptional hotels".

Nominations are made by guests, the organisations themselves, as well as travel agents, tour operators and independent travel consultants from around the world. This year’s awards saw an increase of 50 per cent in nominations from last year, with over 1,000 properties enrolled in the judging process. The property that receives the most number of votes worldwide is crowned the Overall Winner.

“These awards are illustrious accolades which reflect Swissôtel The Stamford’s unwavering pursuit of excellence in every facet of the signature service that we extend to both business and leisure travellers, and an affirmation of Swissôtel Hotels and Resorts’ credo - ‘A Passion For Perfection’. We are proud and privileged to have received these recognitions conferred by guests and travel trade industry players, particularly this year which marks the celebration of Swissotel Hotels & Resorts’ 30th year founding anniversary as one of the world’s leading hotel groups,” said Mr Aiden McAuley, General Manager of Swissôtel The Stamford and Regional Vice-President, Asia-Pacific, Swissôtel Hotels & Resorts.

“Indeed, these awards cap 2010 on a high note. Our sincere thanks and gratitude to our valued colleagues and industry partners whose unstinting efforts have made this achievement possible,” he added.
