The Hotel Experience Awards

On Monday night the 1st of February the top hotels in New York City were honored for their achievements in travel, tourism and service to all those who visit our great city.

NYPD Commissioner Raymond Kelly received a lifetime achievement award.  New York City is now “Officially the Safest Big City” in America (and probably the world)!

Hotel honors were given for everything from the Best Overall Hotel Experience , The Concierge Desk of the Year, and even the Most Family Friendly Hotel in all of New York (both big and small).  Yes, we have hotels in all sizes in New York!

Starbright was honored to be a sponsor of the Hotel Experience Awards this year and for every year since their inception (the better part of a decade).  The awards evening was held at Cipriani’s Wall Street and there were well over 500 in attendance.  Many have called this event “The Oscars of the Hospitality Industry” and I for one attending last night agree.   It was a fun night, a night of making new friends and catching up with old ones.

Floral decor was provided by our very own Creative Team at Starbright.  We presented a short cylinder vase with a ti leaf wrapped on the inside (so that the water and the stems were not visible).  Each centerpiece had twenty stems of balm dendrobium orchids and about ten stems of vanda orchids (in lavender).

To top off the evening?  It was my personal honor to be selected to give the award to The Most Family Friendly Hotel in the over 500 room category.  The Marriott Marquis won this category and it was a dream come true when my close personal friend George Ntim (Director of Guest Relations) received the award on behalf of the property.

The complete press release and better photos of the event will be on this scribe soon… But for now – enjoy!
