The historic hotel also received gold awards in the Best Greek Business City Hotel category and in the Best Greek Hotel Dining Experience category for the five-star gastronomy experience it offers, with the signature of top chef Sotiris Evangelou.
“Being awarded as the top hotel of the year, is a great honor, taking into consideration the high level of competition,” said Makedonia Palace general Manager Alkiviadis Sotiriou.
According to an announcement, Thessaloniki’s prestigious hotel was distinguished among 149 hospitality and tourism enterprises for the innovative creative solutions it has adopted in its hospitality services and operation. The winners of the Greek Hospitality Awards 2018 were selected based on specific requirements and criteria set by the judging committee and the readers of Hrima Magazine.
“This accolade came as a recognition to the hotel’s renovation project, which set new foundations in the hospitality industry of Thessaloniki and the greater region, also turning Makedonia Palace into a destination,” Sotiriou added.
The Greek Hospitality Awards 2018 were held under the auspices of the Tourism Ministry, the Greek National Tourism Organization (GNTO), TIF-HELEXPO, the General Pan-Hellenic Federation of Tourism Enterprises (GEPOET) and the Hellenic Hoteliers Federation.
