GM Roderick Micallef elated!  

“I am the happiest man this evening. I am very happy. I am very happy for my staff and I will be delivering this (the trophy) to my staff as fast as possible because they all deserve this.” This was the first reaction of Roderick Micallef, the Corinthia Hotel Lisbon General Manager, shortly after he collected the award.

The five-star Corinthia Hotel Lisbon has been awarded World’s Leading City Hotel by the World Travel Awards which is considered by many as the ‘oscars’ for the travel industry and this year, the high-profile gala ceremony was held on 1st December 2018 in Lisbon, Portugal. It marked the climax of the World Travel Awards Grand silver jubilee, honouring excellence in the international hospitality industry by acknowledging luxury hotels for their world-class facilities and excellent guest service.

With this award, the five-star Corinthia Hotel Lisbon was recognised for its world-class facilities and excellent service. This esteemed accolade is testament to Corinthia Lisbon’s commitment to excellence and dedication to craft the ultimate hotel experience. The annual voting is cast by hotel guests, international tour operators and travel agents.

Clearly elated, Mr Roderick Micallef the General Manager of Corinthia Hotel Lisbon (pictured above holding the trophy), has already set his sights on next year’s awards.
