The best new hotel development award went to Ahmed Siddique, owner of the Radisson SAS Media City Dubai which opened in two phases and is already achieving outstanding occupancy levels of above 90 per cent, as well as one of the highest guest satisfaction levels within the Radisson SAS hotel group.
The innovation award went to Doha City Centre, owned by HE Shaikh Faisal bin Qassim bin Faisal Al Thani whose vision to create a downtown hub for the Qatari capital has been translated by the HOK design practice into a unique five hotel cluster wrapped around the original 450-store shopping mall.
On completion, the centre will offers five distinct hotel brands with Shangri-La, Rotana, Renaissance, Courtyard by Marriott and Marweb. Together, 1,276 rooms, 23 food and beverage outlets, 13 pools and spas will be added to Doha’s burgeoning hospitality inventory.
