The Oryx Rotana Doha has been named once again as the Best Airport Hotel in the Middle East this year at the 2014 World Airport Awards held at the Passenger Terminal EXPO in Barcelona, Spain.

“In a region where it seems there is a new luxury five-star hotel opening each month, the Oryx Rotana Doha is pleased with their success in being named as the Best Airport Hotel in the Middle East. The hotel has also maintained its 3rd position in the World’s Best Airport Hotel global category. To deliver such exacting standards in one of the most competitive high-end hotel markets is no small achievement, and the management and staff are proud of their place as the jewel of Middle East airport hotels,” said Kevork Deldelian, Oryx Rotana Doha General Manager.

Oryx Rotana General Manager Kevork Deldelian, said, “It was a real feat to win the award, given the high level of competition that the hotel faced across the region.” “We are so proud of this award – it symbolizes all that we set out to achieve since opening our doors four years ago,” said Deldelian. “Doha is growing at an incredible rate and with so many new hotels and restaurants planning to open, the competition is very high. But our commitment to delivering a five-star service with the backing our airline parent company Qatar Airways, and our attention to detail, is what makes our hotel a favourite not only among travelers, but locals as well,” Deldelian added.

Edward Plaisted, Chairman of Skytrax, said, “We congratulate Oryx Rotana Doha on a most successful performance at the World Airport Awards that serve to show how the hotel has become established as one of the finest airport hotels in the world. The results demonstrate that the Oryx Rotana Doha has established itself as a true guest favourite, with the hotel not only named as the Best Airport Hotel in the Middle East for 2014, but also ranking in 3rd position worldwide for the Best Airport Hotels in the World. This result is quite astounding, and shows the meteoric rise of the Oryx Rotana Doha on a global scale. In 2011 the hotel was ranked number 26 in the world, by 2012 it had risen to number 10, by 2013 it had risen to number 3, and now in 2014 we see the Oryx Rotana Doha again in the third position in the world. The award reflects the standard of the hotel rooms and facilities, with a very large part of winning decided by the quality of staff service provided, and I am pleased to say that is an area where Oryx Rotana Doha scored very highly.”

“The Rotana brand is renowned in the MENA region for its ambitious expansion plan and for the highest levels of service quality and guest comfort. By winning the Best Airport Hotel in the Middle East and by being ranked number three worldwide, Oryx Rotana Doha is clearly living up to these exacting standards,” added Deldelian.

“It is an honor to receive such outstanding recognition from the travel and hospitality industry, and from our guests, for a second year in a row. Rotana is proud to have created its first hotel in Doha, and to have established such a strong following since our opening in August 2010. We will continue to provide sparkling integrated experiences throughout the hotel and strive for excellence in every aspect,” added Deldelian.
