The coveted International Hotel of the Year award was presented to the hotel at the leading global hotel management company’s 2014 global leadership conference, ‘The Power of One’ in Arlington, County Virginia, America.
City Hotel Derry General Manager Feargal O’ Canain said: “On behalf of all the team at City Hotel, we’re delighted to win this tremendous award, which acknowledges the exceptional standard of service – judged on an international scale – we offer our guests. But rather than bask in the glory of this award, this recognition will instead act as a spur to strive for ever higher standards of service.”
Ciaran O’Neill, Regional Vice President of Operations, Interstate, said: “Congratulations to Feargal and his team at City Hotel Derry for this fantastic achievement – they’ve really put Derry on the international hospitality map! Their success stands as just reward for their use of intuitive training, experienced leadership and productive working relationships for the benefit of guests.”
