Radisson Blu Glasgow management duo scoop top honours at The Scottish Hotel Awards
The efforts of the Radisson Bu Hotel Glasgow's management team have been recognized with two awards at this year's Scottish Hotel Awards.
[UKPRwire, Tue May 14 2013] The management team at the Radisson Blu Hotel Glasgow is celebrating the recognition of two team members at the recent Scottish Hotel Awards.
The efforts of General Manager David Allan and Director of Sales Frances Hope were acknowledged at the flagship award ceremony for the Scottish Hospitality industry which took place at the end of April.
Glasgow born Allan was among only four awarded the highly regarded General Manager Laurel for Excellence in recognition of his work at the hotel in Glasgow after judges conducted a rigorous assessment of standards at the Radisson Blu.
Throughout the judging process, the hotel in Glasgow city centre was visited three times by different judges to ensure strict requirements were met. During the visits, the judges aimed to experience the hotel from a guest's perspective as much as possible.
Meanwhile, Hope's long career in the hospitality industry was recognised as she received the Dame of Hospitality award. Hope has been spent a total of 25 years in the hotel business, including 11 years at the 5 star hotel in Glasgow, and this service was reflected in her award.
"It's an honour to even be up for a Scottish Hotel Award but to win is special. We have a great team at the hotel and any award for me is a reflection of their hard work. Frances has given so much to the hotel and the industry so this is a fitting way for her efforts to be recognised" said Allan, the General Manager of Radisson Blu's Glasgow accommodation.
In total, over 50 awards were presented at the prestigious Glasgow ceremony, attended by around 500 guests from the industry. 2013 marked the 10th anniversary of the awards – known to many as the "Scottish Hotel Oscars."
