TAA (NSW) director Carol Giuseppi said it was great to see a NSW hotel win overall hotel of the year (accommodation division) against some stiff competition.
“Accommodation in NSW really is of a world class standard and that was on display at the Awards for Excellence last night,” she said.
“For the NSW accommodation sector to take out so many awards at the national level shows the hard work and determination of management and staff at our leading hotels really is paying off.
“Sydney is the gateway to NSW, and NSW is the gateway to Australia so it is pleasing to see we continue to set the benchmark nationwide.
“I would like to congratulate all winners, especially the Hilton Sydney which won four awards.
“It was also pleasing to see regional accommodation hotels like Fairmont Resort MGallery (Leura) and Echoes A Luxury Collection resort Blue Mountains recognised at the national level.”
