Jumeirah Beach Hotel named best in ME
Dubai, January 19, 2008
For the third year in a row, readers of one of Germany’s leading business travel magazines, Business Traveller, have chosen Jumeirah Beach Hotel as the ‘Best Hotel in the Middle East’.
Jumeirah hotels are a clear favourite of German business travellers visiting the Middle East, with previous editions of the award being presented to Burj Al Arab (2004) and Jumeirah Emirates Towers (2003, 2002), said an official spokesman.
The continuous success of its various hotels in the Gulf region is also raising the awareness of the Jumeirah Group amongst German business travellers who, for the first time, have voted Jumeirah Group as the ‘Best Middle Eastern Hotel Chain’.
The two Business Traveller/Germany awards were handed out during a ceremony held in Frankfurt (Germany).
Jumeirah was also voted Best Hotel Chain in the Middle East for the second consecutive year by the American magazine Global Traveler (GT).
Incidentally, the GT Tested Awards ceremony was held in another Jumeirah property - Jumeirah Essex House in New York City.
GT is a highly regarded American business travel publication focusing on the interests of today’s executive travellers. Over 15 000 readers of the magazine have participated in the 2008 edition of the GT Tested Awards survey, handpicking the best in business and luxury travel.
“It is a great honour to receive these awards from our American and German guests,” said executive chairman of the Jumeirah Group Gerald Lawless.
“Business travellers and travel industry professionals are increasingly aware of the distinctiveness of Jumeirah hotels, not only in the Middle East but also in other major international business centres, such as London where we operate the Jumeirah Carlton Tower and Jumeirah Lowndes Hotel, Jumeirah Essex House in New York, or Jumeirah Han Tang Xintiandi, which will soon open in Shanghai,” he added.- TradeArabia News Service
