For the fifth time, Corinthia Hotel St. Petersburg has been named Russia’s Leading Conference Hotel by the World Travel Awards. The event, also known as, “The Oscars of the Travel Industry,” acknowledges outstanding achievements in the tourism industry around the world. The Gala Awards ceremony took place in St. Petersburg, for the first time, on September 30, 2017. The hotel also won the award in 2011, 2012, 2013, and 2016.
Corinthia General Manager Jonathan Pace said, “We are extremely honored to receive such a prestigious award for the fifth time and in the hotel’s 15th anniversary year. It underlines the exceptional professionalism and care our teams deliver every day when looking after all our guests and MICE partners. We provide service at the top level of global hospitality.”
The 388-room Corinthia Hotel St. Petersburg is the only five-star property which offers such a large number of rooms and event spaces in the historical city center. The hotel offers 17 convertible event spaces with a total capacity of up to 1,000 people. The hotel caters for a variety of events, including international conferences, sumptuous banquets, private weddings, and high-end events.
Currently, Corinthia Hotel St. Petersburg is implementing a large-scale investment project aimed at updating the design of guest rooms and the concept of the lobby. Some 162 newly-designed rooms will be opened in the coming months, following on from phase one, when 120 guest rooms were refurbished and opened in the main wing of the hotel this spring. The renovation is expected to be completed by the summer of 2018.
