International award spells confidence in Egyptian hotel brand
THE Thomas Cook Marque of Excellence award 2005 has once again been awarded to the Savoy Sharm El Sheikh, according to a hotel spokesperson, making it one of only two hotels in the city to receive it.
Thomas Cook’s Samantha Clout, says, “Out of all the five stars hotels in Sharm only two hotels including the Savoy have been awarded with the Thomas Cook Marque of Excellence award which is considered as the highest achievement award for services given from the agency to an hotel.”
This excellence award is based upon customer criteria and their recognition of a property achieving an extremely high standard for service and quality accommodation on a consistent basis for the year.
“We are naturally delighted at being awarded such an accolade,” says Peter D Gibbons, general manager, Savoy Hotels and Resorts International, “as it demonstrates our continued commitment to quality service and standards.”
The hotel recently recruited top industry experts from around the world to work towards the goal of a first independent Egyptian brand: a hotel company that incorporates the Savoy brand, five-star resorts and the city hotels, the Sierra, the 4-star all-inclusive resorts and the Royal Savoy lifestyle brand, business and resort locations, under the single banner of Savoy Hotels & Resorts Sharm El Sheikh.
