- Retains Africa’s Leading Business Hotel title
Transcorp Hilton Abuja has won for the sixth consecutive year Africa’s Leading Business Hotel title, in addition to three other awards.
The other titles won by the hospitality subsidiary of Transnational Corporation of Nigeria Plc during the 27th annual World Travel Awards were Nigeria’s Leading Hotel, Nigeria’s Leading Business Hotel, and Nigeria’s Leading Hotel Suite (the Presidential Suite).
Excited at the honours, the General Manager, Transcorp Hilton Abuja, Kevin Brett, said: “We are delighted to once again receive the World Travel Awards in various categories.
“To have won this award for six consecutive years is a testament to the fact that the hardwork and commitment our team put in daily is recognised and appreciated.
“I thank our guests who through their continuous patronage and feedback have helped us retain the number one position in the Nigerian hospitality industry.”
Similarly, the Managing Director, Transcorp Hotels Plc, Dupe Olusola, said the awards were quite significant coming during the Covid-19 pandemic when travellers route for best-handled hospitality facilities.
“It is such a pleasure to receive the ultimate seal of excellence in the global tourism and hospitality industry from the World Travel Awards,” Olusola stated. “At a time travellers are exploring only the best hospitality products, the significance of this recognition is truly important.”
On their part, the awards organisers disclosed that this year’s nomination programme registered record visitor traffic and engagement from public voters (the all-important tourism consumer) in spite of the incredible challenges faced by the industry in 2020.
“This shows that as the global recovery begins, the appetite for tourism has never been as keen, and offers hope and much needed encouragement to us all,” it said.
World Travel Awards was established in 1993 to acknowledge, reward and celebrate excellence across all key sectors of the travel, tourism and hospitality industries. Today, the World Travel Awards brand is recognised globally as the ultimate hallmark of industry excellence.
