As the tourism industry continues to take steps towards wider recovery and travel restrictions are eased or lifted in many parts of the world, Accor and its worldwide network of leading brands and hotels are very honoured to be recognized with more than 50 awards in the 2021 Condé Nast Traveler Readers’ Choice Awards.
Condé Nast Traveler Readers’ Choice Awards represent the longest-running and most prestigious recognition of excellence in the travel industry. This year over 800,000 Condé Nast Traveler readers submitted responses rating their travel experiences.
Across the Accor group, notable highlights from this year’s rankings include THREE #1 category listings: Raffles Istanbul, Fairmont Austin and 21c Museum Hotel, Kansas City, as well as three Fairmont and one Sofitel properties recognized in the top 10 Canadian resorts.
Within Southeast Asia region, five Accor properties, including Raffles Hotel Le Royal and Raffles Grand Hotel d'Angkor (Cambodia), Raffles Makati (Philippines), Sofitel Legend Metropole Hanoi (Vietnam), and Sofitel Phnom Penh Phokeethra (Cambodia), are listed in the Top 30 Asia Hotels category. Raffles Singapore has been recognized within the Top 10 Hotels in Singapore.
“This outstanding recognition is testament to the emotional connection that our guests have with the wonderful teams of these iconic hotels. Even with the pause of international travel, it is clear that people across the world are still dreaming of travel and perhaps planning their next escape to these renowned addresses. We remain confident in the return of travel and our teams feel truly proud to be recognized by readers of Condé Nast Traveler”, commented Garth Simmons, Chief Executive Officer for Accor in Southeast Asia, Japan & South Korea.
