The George, New Zealand’s Top City Hotel 2012
Christchurch hotel, The George, is delighted to be included in Travel + Leisure World’s Best Awards again in 2012. The George secured New Zealand’s Top City Hotel 2012, with only two New Zealand properties included in the top 10 City Hotels in Australia, New Zealand and the South Pacific 2012. In addition, The George greatly improved its position from ninth in 2011, to fourth this year with its score rising from 86.13 to 87.76.
Considering the recent downturn in visitors (and therefore possible voters) to Christchurch over the past year, The George is delighted with the result and attributes its ongoing success to its team and their ability to perform professionally during various challenging situations.
Travel + Leisure is a well regarded international magazine with a discerning readership of close to one million. Each year its readers have the opportunity to vote for their favourite hotels, spas, airlines, cruise lines, outfitters, cities and islands around the world. With the largest audience of any travel magazine, The George’s inclusion in the prestigious Travel + Leisure awards also helps draw attention to Christchurch & Canterbury in the international market.
With the sheer volume and quality of experiences available, it takes incredible commitment from an organisation to provide experiences that are memorable and meaningful enough to motivate guests to select you as their resounding favourite. Nonetheless, The George has a long history of success in the Travel + Leisure Awards, 2012 being the fifth year that it has been a recipient of these awards.
