Corp Hotel Al Barsha Wins Certificate of Excellence With High Rating in TripAdvisor Traveller Reviews
Online PR News – 28-May-2012 – dubai – Corp Executive Hotel Apartments – Al Barsha has been awarded the prestigious Certificate of Excellence for 2012 by TripAdvisor, the world’s largest travel site, scoring an outstanding rating of 4.5 out of 5 in traveller reviews on the site to achieve an incredible ranking of 53 out of 432 hotels in Dubai.
“This is an achievement that we are truly proud of, considering that our property is just two years old. It builds upon the Certificate of Excellence we won last year for the 2010-11 performance reviews and shows that TripAdvisor travellers have been consistently rating us among the top hotel destinations in the UAE, a country that is globally renowned for the quality and high standards maintained by its hospitality sector,” observed General Manager Aamir Pervez.
“Our team is dedicated in its efforts to ensure that our guests and visitors have a memorable experience and the positive reviews we have been garnering are a recognition of the hard work our staff has put in,” he added.
Congratulating the hotel for its accomplishment, TripAdvisor commented, “Our travellers consistently commend you property with the highest praise and we recognise your 4.5 rating as an excellent achievement. Only the very best in the business are awarded a Certificate of Excellence so display yours proudly in a place where your guests can see it.”
“The award gives hospitality establishments the recognition they deserve and we want to applaud them for offering TripAdvisor travellers a great customer experience,” added Christine Peterson, President, TripAdvisor for Business.
To qualify for the TripAdvisor accolade that honours hospitality excellence, lodging businesses, restaurants and other attractions must maintain an overall rating of four or higher out of a possible five in reviews posted by travellers. Consistency in performance is the key so additional criteria include the volume of reviews received over the previous 12 months.
TripAdvisor has built up a bank of around 45 million reviews of more than 500,000 destinations and some 10% of the accommodations reviewed on the site every year receive this prestigious award.
The power of social media has grown in recent years to a stage where the voice of the customer – the hotel guest – has been extremely important. Guests use sites like TripAdvisor to share their views – some good, others highly critical – about their hotel stays. A hotel that turns a blind eye to these online voices is out of sync with modern times since travellers today increasingly base their travel and stay decisions on the experiences that people share in their reviews. So it makes eminent sense for hotels to become part of the conversation if they do not wish to invite a sharp downturn in business.
