2012 World Luxury Hotel Awards honours Vancouver's premier hotel for outstanding quality and service

VANCOUVER, BC - Rosewood Hotel Georgia has been awarded top Luxury Historical Hotel, a global category in the 2012 World Luxury Hotel Awards. The honours were presented on October 13 at the Gala Ceremony in Kuala Lumpur.

To decide on the award winning hotels, guests and industry consultants vote — this year in record numbers — in a scrupulously monitored poll earlier in the year. Luxury hotels are recognized on a country, continent and global basis. This year, awards were presented to hotels and hotel groups from Australia to Zambia, ranking Rosewood Hotel Georgia among leading hotel groups such as Swissôtel, Meritus Hotels & Resorts, Shangri-La, Pan Pacific, Fairmont, Sheraton, Dusit International and the Westin Hotels & Resorts amongst others.

The criteria to be successfully nominated and included in the official World Luxury Hotel Awards voting process is overall service excellence. Steve Halliday, Managing Director of Rosewood Hotel Georgia proudly states, “We are thrilled to receive such recognition of the team's outstanding achievement in service delivery over the past year. Success comes from being committed to the highest standards. Rosewood Hotel Georgia has now set a benchmark as a global industry leader with this prestigious award.” Speaking of the impact this honour has on winning hotels, Marinique de Wet, Director of the World Luxury Hotel Awards, commented, “Growing numbers of luxury travellers around the world seeking excellent value, impeccable service and the highest quality are now making a point of checking to see who has won a World Luxury Hotel Award before making their own holiday choice.”
