Travel Weekly Magellan Awards gives the gold to Corinthia Hotel Lisbon


The five-star Corinthia Hotel Lisbon was named a 2011 Gold Magellan Award Winner this week for its outstanding business and conference services in the Hotel/Resort Category. The prestigious Travel Weekly Magellan Awards each year honor the best in travel and salute the outstanding travel professionals behind it all.

Roderick Micallef, General Manager of Corinthia Hotel Lisbon, said: “It is an honor for us to be selected by such a distinguished panel of judges to be named a 2011 Gold Magellan Award winner. The Corinthia Hotel Lisbon strives for excellence in all of its services, especially in regards to our Meeting and Incentives’ Events at Corinthia promises.”

With its state-of-the-art conference facilities, The Corinthia Hotel Lisbon boasts the largest hotel conference center in Lisbon. The hotel gained recognition as the top conference center hotel in Portugal in 2009 when it was named “Best Events Hotel” at the third edition of the Events Annual Gala that took place in Oporto, Portugal. This coincided with the launch of the “Meet for Free” campaign, which offers free meeting space for groups of ten rooms or more. This campaign was extremely successful, providing meeting and event planners with the best value for money and leading to a sharp increase in conference and corporate meetings business for the year for the hotel. The program has now been re-launched as “back by popular demand” for all bookings received by the end of January 2012.

The luxurious Corinthia Hotel Lisbon is located in the heart of the financial district, a short distance from the historic city center, as well as the Lisbon International Airport. The modern, stylish hotel offers stunning views of the 18th century Aqueduct and beautiful Monsanto Natural Park. The hotel is owned by Malta-based International Hotel Investments (IHI) and operated by CHI Hotels & Resorts, a joint venture between IHI and the Wyndham Hotel Group
