Business Destinations Travel Awards 2014 announces The Torch…

THE TORCH DOHA, member of Leading Hotels of the World is the proud winner in the Best Luxury Hotel category, as announced last week by Business Destinations Travel Awards 2014. The winners will be published in the Autumn 2014 edition of Business Destinations magazine.

Nominated for the third consecutive year in the Business Destinations Awards, the 5-Star luxury hotel located at the heart of Aspire Zone – Doha’s Sports City receives the highest accolade for showcasing the latest in-room technology, signature dining and high-end amenities.

After assessing the four finalists in this category, The Torch Doha was chosen by a vast and diverse cross section of primary users and purchasers of corporate travel, including company travel buyers from Fortune 500 companies, MICE solution providers, members of the Association of Corporate Travel Executives (ACTE) and other influential members of the business travel community.

Gathered from an international email campaign and online voting, submissions are asked to consider criteria including quality and range of services, customer satisfaction and business acumen.

Hotel Manager of THE TORCH DOHA, Mr. Sherif Sabry said: “The award for Best Luxury Hotel in Qatar in 2014 is a great example of what we can achieve as a property through our staff combined efforts. We are proudly representing Qatar in the world hospitality scene as the premier venue for those who are looking for state-of-the-art accommodation. The award reinforces our commitment to service excellence and shows our ongoing dedication to guest satisfaction.”

In 2012 THE TORCH DOHA was the overall winner in the same Best Luxury Hotel in Qatar category for its performance, followed by obtaining the award for Best Business Hotel in Qatar in 2013.

“The team at THE TORCH DOHA has continued to forge higher standards, offering exceptional hotel services which placed them above the competition for this category,” said Business Destinations in a statement. "The hotel’s dedication to fantastic customer service and expansion is admirable and sets the benchmark for others within the hospitality industry.”

The Torch Doha opened its doors to the public in January 2012 and is designed to provide exclusive access to International caliber sporting and leisure facilities, latest technology, state-of-the-art presentation and audio-video facilities and high-end dining options. The hotel is the result of comprehensive architectural, engineering and technical design, formerly shaped to represent a colossal torch which for the duration of the 15th Asian Games in 2006 held its symbolic flame.
