The George Hotel, in Limerick’s shopping and entertainment quarter, has won a major gong at the annual awards of global travel group, TRIVAGO at a recent ceremony.
The TRIVAGO Awards are the highest endorsement TRIVAGO gives to hotels in recognition of their achievements throughout the year. One of the six categories in the awards annually is for Direct Bookings, where the 10 hotels in each country that have driven the most direct bookings through TRIVAGO using Rate Connect are recognised with TRIVAGO Awards in the Direct Bookings category.
The first-placed hotel is considered the overall category winner for their country – this year The George Hotel won the coveted Best Direct Bookings category at the Irish TRIVAGO Awards 2019, fighting off competition from hundreds of other Irish hotels to emerge victorious.
“We are delighted to win the Irish TRIVAGO Award for Best Direct Bookings,” says Altaf Khan General Manager of The George Hotel. “Our experience with TRIVAGO and Rate Connect has been an enormously positive one and continues to be a major factor in our commercial success.
“As a leading global hotel metasearch with data on millions of aggregated guest ratings, we are well positioned to identify the top-rated hotels that are delivering exceptional guest experiences,” says Johannes Thomas, TRIVAGO Managing Director and Chief Revenue Officer. “At the same time, being a digital marketing channel used by hundreds of thousands of hoteliers around the world enables us to recognise the hotels that are embracing technology and excelling online. The TRIVAGO Awards give us the chance to honour the hard-working and forward-looking hoteliers behind these exemplary hotels.”
To help celebrate their award, The George Hotel is offering all guests who book directly for stays in January 2019 a €10 gift card per room for the newly opened Alex Findlater & Co. Food & Wine Hall, the impressive 18,000 sq. ft. food & wine emporium located on the ground floor of the hotel, in the heart of Limerick city’s shopping and restaurant quarter – an original and inspirational new resource for food and wine lovers.
