Double award win for Corinthia Hotel Lisbon
For the second year in a row, Corinthia Hotel Lisbon has been distinguished by the prestigious World Travel Awards. The Corinthia Lisbon was among the final shortlist of eight nominees from the Europe category and was elected Europe's Leading Green Hotel. The distinguished panel of judges and the consumer travel buyer also elected the Corinthia Hotel Lisbon as Portugal's Leading Conference Hotel.
The World Travel Awards serves to acknowledge, reward and celebrate the enormous achievements to be found in all sectors of the global travel industry and is acknowledged across the globe as the ultimate travel accolade.
Reuben Mifsud, General Manager of Corinthia Hotel Lisbon, said: “Winning both Europe's Leading Green Hotel as well as Portugal's Leading Conference Hotel make us very proud and underlines the remarkable team who work tirelessly all year to go the extra mile and offer crafted experiences to all our guests. Our passion for hospitality drives us to improve and address the challenges of our time. This is why, in 2010, we started implementing tailor-made engineering solutions with state-of-the-art plant rooms. We can now offer high levels of performance on energy efficiency and we are able to produce energy autonomously.”
In March 2014, the Corinthia Hotel Lisbon inaugurated a renovated Lobby and Lounge Bar. The new look has created a high-end “residential” warm welcome and the feel of true luxury where guests can enjoy a more intimate atmosphere and feel more comfort. The hotel conference and events facilities are the largest and best equipped in a five star hotel in Lisbon with 16 rooms gathered in the same floor with natural day light and a capacity for up to 1,400 delegates in a multi-purpose 32,000 square-feet area.
Further awards: The hotel gained recognition as the top conference center hotel in Portugal in 2009 when it was named ‘Best Events Hotel’ at the third edition of the Events Annual Gala that took place in Oporto, Portugal, and in 2011 was named Gold Magellan Award Winner for its outstanding business and conference services in the Hotel/Resort Category. In 2013 it was named winner of the Western Europe Region Energy Project of the Year for 2013 by the USA Association of Energy Engineers, for its outstanding energy efficient hotel project. In 2014 was named Luxury Hotel&Conference Center of the European continent by the World Luxury Hotel Awards and named Portugal’s Leading Business hotel by the World Travel Awards. In June this year the hotel was named winner of the Environmental Sustainability Project of the Year 2015 by the Portuguese Association of Hospitality and Restaurants.
