Seven Conrad hotels have been voted amongst the best hotels in the world by up to 28,000 subscribers of Condé Nast Traveler (US). The results of the readers’ choice poll were published in the Gold List 2006 of the January issue.
In Asia, the Conrad Hong Kong received the high score of 88 per cent for the quality of its ‘phenomenal staff’, contemporary design and its Brasserie on the Eighth restaurant. The Conrad Bangkok was praised for its elegant rooms and the ‘limitless smiles’ of its staff. Its famous bar, 87+, was also mentioned by the readers of Condé Nast Traveler. The Conrad Centennial Singapore’s ‘fantastic downtown views’ were noted, as well as the quality of its guest rooms and the Golden Peony restaurant.
In Europe, three other Conrad hotels made the prestigious Gold list: the Conrad Brussels, for its location, interior and Loui restaurant, the Conrad Dublin, for its central location and service and the Mount Juliet Conrad in Kilkenny, for its magnificent estate, friendly service and delectable Irish cuisine, enjoyed whilst overlooking the championship golf course.
In the US, the Conrad Chicago was voted for its location and ‘superplush beds’, for the promptness of staff, for its drinks terrace and for its French restaurant, Cerise.
Clem Barter, President Conrad Hotels commented: “We are extremely grateful for the support of Condé Nast Traveler’s subscribers, who are also our customers. We will make sure that we continue to deliver the best service in all our hotels worldwide.”
These accolades complement the award of ‘World’s Leading Luxury Hotel Brand’ from the World Travel Awards, received by Conrad Hotels in London last November.
