The Radisson Blu Hotel, Amsterdam wins "Global Hotel of the Year 2011"

Wed, 29 Feb 2012 12:13:07 EST

The Radisson Blu Hotel, Amsterdam has been awarded the title of 'Global Hotel of the Year 2011' by the Carlson Rezidor Hotel Group. The property, located in the heart of Amsterdam, has been named the best of more than 420 Radisson hotels worldwide, and the leading player within the Carlson Rezidor Hotel Group with regards to guest satisfaction, employee engagement, business performance, and market positioning.

"The Radisson Blu Hotel, Amsterdam has delivered an outstanding result – not only in 2011, but over the last three years. It has truly raised the bar in achieving operations and service excellence within our group", said Kurt Ritter, president & CEO of Rezidor at the Award Ceremony during Carlson Rezidor's Global Business Conference in Nassau, Bahamas. At the forefront of the Global Business Conference, the property had already been awarded the title of "Hotel of the Year 2011" in Europe, the Middle East and Africa.

"Both awards are a thank you and a fantastic motivation to my staff. Such achievements cannot be won by a single employee or following a single activity. They are the result of long term and intense team work", said Ronald Smithjes, general manager of the Radisson Blu Hotel, Amsterdam at the prize giving.

The hotel aims to combine past and present in downtown Amsterdam, and was carefully designed to encompass several 18th century merchant houses, a former paper factory and a 19th century vicarage. Featuring 248 modern and stylish rooms and suites, the "De Palmboom" restaurant with a Dutch and international menu, the unique "Pastorie Bar", flexible meeting rooms for up to 160 delegates and a business centre, as well as a gym including sauna and solarium, the hotel is an ideal location for both leisure and business travelers staying in Amsterdam hotels. The hotel also aims to adhere to Radisson's service philosophy 'Yes I Can!', a 100% guest satisfaction guarantee, and further signature services such as free high speed internet access at all times. According to the group's Responsible Business Programme, the hotel is a smoke-free environment, and pet-friendly.
