Hilton Athens has won the title of Greece’s Leading Business Hotel at the European final of the prestigious World Travel Awards 2015, held in the Forte Village Resort, Sardinia, on September 5.
Hailed as “the Oscars of the travel industry,” the World Travel Awards are held once a year and recognize, reward and celebrate excellence across all sectors of the tourism industry on a global scale.
“It is an honour for Hilton Athens to be recognized at the World Travel Awards 2015″, said Bart van de Winkel, general manager, Hilton Athens.
Hilton Athens was one of 21 Hilton Worldwide properties to receive an accolade at the World Travel Award’s Europe gala ceremony.
“This accolade is not only a reflection of the hotel’s exceptional facilities, but more importantly of our team’s dedication to providing guests with Hilton’s world-renowned hospitality”, he added.
Much more than a hotel, Hilton Athens has the reputation of a multi-purpose venue that caters to the needs of both locals and travellers. With 506 spacious rooms, 22 state-of-the-art meeting rooms and a whole array of premium services and facilities, Hilton Athens is considered ideal to combine business and pleasure.
Hilton Worldwide’s flagship brand, Hilton Hotels & Resorts was also awarded Europe’s Leading Hotel Brand for the second consecutive year, reflecting its presence in 76 countries and territories across the region.
The prestigious World Travel Awards have been recognising organisations delivering outstanding customer experience in travel and tourism for more than 20 years. They have become a key global institution of the industry, stimulating competition and innovation among operators, as well as providing a helpful testimonial for quality to travellers worldwide.
