The Aloft Aberdeen has won a top industry award. Located in the newly redeveloped The Event compound, the Aloft Aberdeen picked up an award for Best New Hotel at the 2019 Hotel Awards Scotland ceremony.
The 150-roomed hotel only opened in August 2019, but has taken the industry by storm. Not only does it offer a range of next generation tech facilities to guests, but the décor itself celebrates urban design, culture and living.
The awards ceremony, which is currently in its first year, is keen to highlight the top hospitality experiences available to Scottish tourists and travelers.
Speaking about the awards, a spokesperson explained: “These awards have just celebrated their first year and are well on their way to becoming a staple event in the country’s business calendar.”
He added that most of the finalists and winners were long-term industry stalwarts, who were committed to improving and supporting the Scottish tourism industry. In recent years, Scotland has become increasingly popular with international visitors, and tourism sectors from Europe and the US have brought significant revenue to the Scottish economy.
The Hotel Awards Scotland will continue to be an annual event that will celebrate the great and the good of the hospitality industry in Scotland. More categories may be added at a later date too. The spokesperson added that the awards event had already shown itself to be an excellent platform for networking hospitality professionals.
General manager of Aloft Aberdeen, Mark Leyland, said winning the award was a great honor. He paid tribute to his team, saying: “Having opened our doors to guests less than two months ago, we were delighted to be recognised at the inaugural Scottish Hotel Awards, and to come top in our category is fantastic.
“This award is a brilliant recognition for the team at Aloft Aberdeen TECA, all of whom played integral roles from pre-launch to opening our doors to the public. It really is testament to their commitment and hard work. Congratulations to everyone involved, I’m excited to see what’s to come for the hotel and our team.”
