Transcorp Hilton Abuja has won four (4) awards, including Africa’s Leading Business Hotel, for the seventh consecutive year at the 28th annual World Travel Awards.

The hotel, which is owned by Nigeria’s leading hospitality brand, Transcorp Hotels Plc., also won the awards for Nigeria’s Leading Hotel, Nigeria’s Leading Business Hotel, and Nigeria’s Leading Hotel Suite (the Presidential Suite).

Similarly, Transcorp Hotels Calabar, Transcorp Hotels Plc’s business in Nigeria’s Cross Rivers State, also emerged as the winner of the Best City Hotel in Nigeria at the 2021 International Travel Awards.

Mrs. Dupe Olusola, the MD/CEO of Transcorp Hotels Plc., in her remarks, highlighted the significance of receiving such awards, despite the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on the hospitality industry.

“The awards show how innovative our business has been; improving our offerings and introducing new ideas in line with our commitment to continue to offer guests exclusive and exceptional experiences. We understand that the needs of our customers are evolving to be more experience-driven, hence our focus on ensuring every experience at any of our touchpoints is memorable,” Mrs. Olusola said.

“We have consistently delivered excellent hospitality and remain committed to exceeding expectations always, across all our businesses. We have proven this over the years with our flagship property Transcorp Hilton Abuja. Our Calabar business is also delivering excellent services and getting recognised for it. This is who we are, and this is what our stakeholders have come to expect from all our businesses, including the recently launched Aura by Transcorp Hotels, a digital platform for booking unique accommodation, ordering great food and memorable lifestyle experiences,” Mrs. Olusola added.

Transcorp Hotels Plc has worked extensively to cater holistically to the needs of its guests and hospitality stakeholders and this is evident in the barrier-breaking projects the company has been executing. With a strategy grounded in a deep understanding of rising consumer expectations, Transcorp Hotels Plc. is expanding its business with new developments that cater to different segments.

Earlier in the year, the hospitality giant launched Workspace by Transcorp Hotels, a co-working space with private offices and a board room at Transcorp Hilton Abuja. According to the company, plans are on track to take the co-working space brand to different locations, fitted within an atmosphere with the experience of relevant services perfect for today’s workers.

The World Travel Awards was established in 1993 to acknowledge, reward, and celebrate excellence across all key sectors of the travel, tourism and hospitality industries, and 2021 marks the 28th anniversary of the award ceremony. Its annual programme is renowned as the most prestigious and comprehensive in the global industry.

Likewise, the International Travel Awards, organised by Golden Tree Events, is crafted to honour the excellent performers in the tourism and travel industry around the world.
