LUCIANO Pavarotti is only the latest high-profile guest to be staying with the Corinthia Group. In the summer of 2006, the Corinthia Grand Hotel Royal in Budapest, Hungary, will host the leading tenor during his farewell concert in Budapest and the hotel will offer opera fans a variety of concert packages.
The award-winning five-star property will also host the maestro’s farewell gala dinner following the concert on August 19, in the hotel’s grand ballroom, offering Pavarotti fans an extraordinary opportunity to participate in this historic final concert stop in Budapest, with VIP Concert tickets and invitations to the Gala dinner.
Fans will be able to select from a range of exclusive platinum, gold and silver packages ranging from 1039 euros upwards including superior accommodation, buffet breakfast, airport transfers, VIP concert tickets, entrance to the VIP room with buffet during concert break and invitations to the post-concert gala dinner with Pavarotti. For as little as 299 Euros (approx LM128) per person, a Bronze economy package includes two nights accommodation with breakfast, airport transfers, standard concert tickets and an ‘Addio Pavarotti’ souvenir.
“Corinthia Hotels is truly honoured to host Maestro Pavarotti in Budapest”, says Geoff Andrew, group director, sales & marketing, Corinthia Hotels International. “We are also pleased to be able to offer our guests the unique opportunity to share in this singular moment of world class cultural history in the making.’’
Pavarotti fans attending the historic concert and gala will also be able to enjoy Corinthia Grand Hotel Royal’s new luxury spa which is scheduled to open in April 2006.
The award-winning five-star Corinthia Towers Hotel in Prague hosted the 2006 WorldHotels’ Annual Conference held in the Czech Republic recently. WorldHotels is one of the world’s leading global hotel groups for independent hotels and regional hotel brands. The Conference attracted 290 hoteliers from 38 countries, representing 90 per cent of WorldHotels’ overall membership.
At last year’s WorldHotels’ Conference in Hong Kong, Corinthia Towers Hotel was recognised as the Best MICE Market Hotel for 2004. Says Christian Grage, Corinthia Towers’ general manager, “We were honoured to have been selected to host the WorldHotels’ Conference and appreciated the confidence placed in us. There is no greater challenge to a hotel than to host hundreds of fellow hoteliers from around the globe.”
Established in 1971, the WorldHotels’ Annual Conference has become a traditional institution for its members, providing important updates on the travel industry and insights into the latest technological and consumer trends.
Michael Ball, CEO of WorldHotels congratulated Christian Grage and his entire team for the world class service and hospitality that contributed greatly to the resounding success of this year’s Conference. “The Corinthia Towers Hotel has certainly lived up to the high expectations we all had when selecting the property as the venue for this year’s conference.”
