The best hotels were awarded during the Haute Grandier Gala event in Dubai

One of the most important events for hoteliers on a global scale is the Haute Grandier Prize, which took place at the Pallazzo Versace in Dubai in early November 2018.

The event was attended by hotel representatives, VIP celebrities from Near East countries and media representatives who mapped out the hoteliers and operators who would be awarded for their restaurant, hotel or spa.

The award was based on the vote of the general public as well as the activities of individual hotels on the Internet. Subsequently, the decision was made by experts, who always guarantee the transparency of the voting process.

Slovakia was represented by Elizabeth Hotel based in Trencin that won the Best City Hotel in the region. The award from the hands of Marinique De Wet, the founder of Haute Grandier, was taken by Jan Svoboda, director of the nominated hotel.

"This award in such a strong global brand competition is a great advertisement not only for the city of Trenčín but also for the whole of Slovakia, a destination that deserves to be visited. It is clear that it is possible to find here high quality hotels with corresponding services," said Jan Svoboda after receiving the award.

The Elizabeth Hotel was opened in September 2012 after almost two years of renovation. It offers 78 comfortable rooms, the Caracalla spa, the Art Nouveau café Sisi and the original Elizabeth restaurant. In the past, the hotel won several European awards and nowadays is run by current hotelier of the year Tiago Viganó.

Hotel Elizabeth, however, was not the only award-winning object of the Synot Holiday tourism products. The Grandhotel Tatra in Velké Karlovice in the Czech Republic also won the prize and therefore the hotel can be proud of several prestigious world awards.
