Another Great Reason to Visit: World Luxury
Winner of the 2014 World Boutique Hotel Award in the Classic Elegance Category.
The Great George Hotel is thrilled to announce that they have won the 2014 World Boutique Hotel Award in the Classic Elegance Category. This prestigious and highly renowned International award was presented in London, England on November 12th, 2014.
Rachel Vidito, General Manager of The Great George described the nomination process: “The nomination and award were based on a number of factors and the process to win this award was not an easy one. The Great George Hotel was nominated – by a guest, travel agent or tour operator. In order for the nomination to stand, an in-depth interview was conducted via telephone. I (Rachel Vidito, General Manager) was interviewed by a nomination panel of three representatives from The World Boutique Hotel Awards (WBHA). The interview was approximately three hours. Two weeks after the interview, The Great George team found out that our nomination was approved by the WBHA nomination panel. Needless to say, we were very excited!”
This past summer, three esteemed judges from WBHA met and stayed at The Great George to evaluate the property. In October, Rachel and the rest of her team were informed that they did in fact win the award under the Classic Elegance Category. They were asked to keep the information classified as the awards are not formally announced until November in London, England.
Kevin Murphy, owner of The Great George adds “Kathy and I are so proud of Rachel and her team in achieving this recognition. The Great George continues to be Atlantic Canada’s premiere boutique hotel. Congratulations Rachel!”
