HOTEL SCHWEIZERHOF BERN RECOGNISED AS “SWITZERLAND’S LEADING BUSINESS HOTEL 2016” AT WORLD TRAVEL AWARDS
Bern, 6th September 2016 – On Sunday, 4th
September 2016, a number of outstanding achievements in the travel and tourism industry were recognised at the World Travel Awards Europe Gala in Sardinia. The Hotel Schweizerhof Bern won top honours in the category “Switzerland’s Leading Business Hotel”.
The five-star superior Hotel Schweizerhof Bern is adding another award to its long list of
accolades. At the 23rd edition of the prestigious World Travel Awards, Bern’s legendary
hotel was nominated in two categories, “Switzerland’s Leading Business Hotel” and “Switzerland’s Leading Hotel Suite”, and in the first of these categories, the Schweizerhof won first place, besting five competing nominees. “We are very proud to have won this prestigious award as Switzerland’s Leading Business Hotel,” said General Manager Iris Flückiger. “It encourages us to keep on focusing on exceeding our guests’ wishes.”
The Hotel Schweizerhof, located at Bern’s most central address, offers 11 rooms totaling
some 800 m2 in area that are ideal settings for a wide variety of occasions from meetings
and seminars to conferences and banquets. The centrepiece is the 350 m2 Salon Trianon,
a listed ballroom featuring impressive stucco ceilings, imposing marble columns and
chandeliers in the original Belle Epoque design. The three smaller salons, I to III, offer a
unique atmosphere as well for meetings and celebrations of all kinds. Featuring state-of-
the-art equipment, the hotel’s meeting rooms provide solutions tailored to meet all the
needs of a contemporary workplace. The hotel’s technology was completely upgraded in
2015 to guarantee that guests have access to infrastructure of the highest quality.
Since April 2015, some 150,000 honeybees have also been staying at the Hotel Schweizerhof Bern, housed in three “mini-hotels” on the roof terrace, where they produce the hotel’s own “Sky Deluxe” honey. The hotel is contributing toward the survival of
honeybees and promoting ecological balance.
