1.12.2014

Crowne Plaza Helsinki has been internationally awarded for the second time this year. At the World Luxury Hotel Awards™ event held this year in Cape Town in South Africa on the 6th of December, the hotel was given the award of the best in Finland in the Luxury Hotel & Conference Centre category. The World Luxury Hotel Awards™ annually awards hotels and holiday resorts operating in the luxury sector.

”I am very satisfied with the recognition won by our hotel. The Crowne Plaza chain has purposefully directed the brand this year on a global level towards the higher ’upper upscale’ level, so earning an internationally significant mark of distinction like this again is heartening,” says the General Manager of Crowne Plaza Helsinki, Saija Savela-Palovaara. ”This and the award we already got earlier on, in August, show that investing in customer service and high-quality services produces the desired experiences for customers,” Savela-Palovaara goes on.

The World Luxury Hotel Awards™, held since 2006, is one of the most internationally respected hotel-sector accolades and the year's largest event in the luxury hotel and holiday resort segment. The winners are chosen annually from a group of over 1,000 hotels and holiday resorts. The hotels and holiday resorts selected for the competition are expected to meet the criteria for excellent facilities and top-level expertise in service.

The Crowne Plaza Helsinki got its accolade in the country-specific classification in the Luxury Hotel & Conference Centre category. Through the prize, the Crowne Plaza Helsinki hotel was given the title of Finland’s Luxury Hotel & Conference Centre 2014. The Crowne Plaza has also been awarded at the Luxury Hotel Awards™ event during the previous two years. In August this year, the Crowne Plaza Helsinki was also awarded the title of Finland’s Leading Business Hotel 2014 at the World Travel Awards gala.
