BEIJING -  Hilton Beijing Wangfujing was voted yet again “2010 World’s Leading Lifestyle Hotel,” adding to its string of accolades since its opening in July 2008. The hotel picked up the trophy for the third year in a row at the World Travel Awards Grand Final 2010 Ceremony at London’s Grosvenor House hotel on 7 November 2010.

It is an award feat for Hilton Beijing Wangfujing, which was also given three regional awards – 2010 Asia's Leading City Resort, 2010 Asia's Leading Lifestyle Hotel, and 2010 China's Leading City Resort – during the 2010 World Travel Awards for Asia and Australasia held earlier in the year in New Delhi, India.

Nominations featured 5,000 companies in 1,000 categories across 162 countries. The winners were selected by thousands of industry professionals and consumers worldwide who have been voting online.

Graham Cooke, president and founder, World Travel Awards, said: “This year, like the last, continues to challenge every strata of travel and tourism. However tonight’s World Travel Awards winners see struggle not as sign of weakness or failure, but as an opportunity for growth and renewal, and a chance to put their business model through the ultimate test.” He added: “By combining flair and ambition with savvy business acumen, these organizations are spearheading the worldwide recovery of travel and tourism. In doing so they are also reinforcing our industry’s role as one of the mainstays of the global economy.”

Commenting on the award Hilton Beijing Wangfujing General Manager Nils-Arne Schroeder remarked: “Several milestones have been happening and recognitions have been awarded over the last 2 years since Hilton Beijing Wangfujing opened just in time for the Beijing Summer Olympics. We are truly delighted and honored to be recognized by travel industry experts and peers as Hilton Beijing Wangfujing continues its commitment in delivering the distinguished Hilton service, bespoke amenities and intimate indulgences.
