Jin Jiang International Hotel’s Jin Jiang Tower and Park Hotel Awarded at the City of Paradise – ‘2013-2014 City Traveler Best Hotel Awards’

Shanghai, 31 October, 2013 

On 21 October, two iconic hotels from Jin Jiang International Hotels, both located in Shanghai, were each honored an award during the annual ‘2013-2014 City Traveler Best Hotel Awards’, held by City Traveler magazine, China’s leading high-end luxury travel trade and lifestyle publication. 

Jin Jiang Tower, Jin Jiang’s five star deluxe flagship business hotel received ‘The Best Meeting Hotel Award’, highlighting its business and meeting facilities scope and capabilities in hosting a varied range of events. This landmark hotel has 582 guest rooms, a range of dining and recreational facilities and 9 function rooms, and since opening in 1988 it has hosted more than 360 national leaders, foreign dignitaries, and celebrities from around the world. 

Following this award, Park Hotel, another landmark hotel from the Jin Jiang collection, received ‘The Best Mid-Range Business Hotel Award’, reflecting its long standing presence as one of Shanghai’s most renowned heritage hotels. First opening its doors in 1934, this Art-Deco boutique hotel which used to be the tallest building in China and the Far East, marked the new beginning of Chinese modern hospitality. Steeped in rich history, it was one of the main HOTELS IN SHANGHAI to play host to a number of well-known Chinese and foreign guests, and was also where the first long distance phone call was made between China and the United States. The hotel has 261 guest rooms and offers advanced conference facilities to meet the needs of international business travelers.

The lavish awards ceremony, held in downtown Shanghai, was attended by 250 guests including the general managers of top international and domestic HOTELS IN CHINA, corporate hotel groups, and leading travel industry executives from a number of tour operators and tourism boards. There were 10 awards categories, and the awards were presented to a carefully selected range of top four and five star hotels located around East China following a voting process that involved a panel of 10 leading tour operators and travel industry consultants. The award’s judging criteria was based on collected guest feedback from the nominated hotels and the quality of the facilities and service excellence of each hotel. All winners will be featured in the November 2013 issue of City Traveler. 

On behalf of Jin Jiang International Hotels I would like to wish a big congratulations to the entire dedicated and hardworking teams of both the Jin Jiang Tower and Park Hotel, whom we are all very proud of,stated Mr. Bernold Schroeder, CEO of Jin Jiang International Hotels:“We are thrilled for these two HOTELS IN being selected to receive such prestigious awards from City Traveler and to be acknowledged alongside other top hotel brands around East China and this, in addition, truly demonstrates the continued recognition of the Jin Jiang brand in China.
