Hotel Gotham in Manchester has added two more gongs to its impressive trophy haul, after scooping Best New Hotel and Best Boutique Hotel in Europe at the World Boutique Hotel Awards 2016.
The trendy hotel, which opened last year to huge acclaim, was crowned the winner at the ceremony on November 9 at Merchant Taylors’ Hall in London and beat off stiff competition from numerous luxury hotels around the globe.
Now in their 6th year, the Awards recognise excellence among boutique hotels internationally and handed out other accolades including World’s Best Beach Boutique and World’s Most Inspirational Design Hotel.
This year’s keynote speech was delivered by Tim Dingle, a figure in leadership and motivation training, while another speech was delivered by founding member of The Master Key Society, Manolis Vordonis, owner of the Poseidonion Grand Hotel.
“The World Boutique Hotel Awards was a truly inspiring evening celebrated with passionate hoteliers from around the world. We are excited to work with these fantastic boutique hotels and their inspired and inspiring leaders. We look forward to helping convey their unique luxurious features to an American audience hungry for new and interesting experiences,” says Brian Froelich, Chairman of JDB Fine Hotels & Resorts.
The Art Deco Hotel Gotham is housed inside a former bank and is home to a rooftop bar and private members club, Club Brass. It’s been a hit with both the A list celebrity crowd and tourists, since it opened its doors last year and will kick start a roll out of the Gotham brand across the UK, according to Bespoke Hotels.
