DUBAI, UAE, Dec. 30, 2010 /PRNewswire/ -- Jumeirah Carlton Tower, the luxury Knightsbridge hotel, has been voted as one of the world's best hotels in Conde Nast Traveller magazine's seventh annual Gold List - one of only three UK hotels to be recognised for outstanding service.
The panel of judges cited the hotel's above and beyond service as the outstanding feature that propelled the hotel onto the Gold List. Feedback from the panel noted the Knightsbridge hotel staff are willing to go that extra mile, from preparing a private meal for two in the gardens of Cadogan Square to setting up cooking lessons with the chef.
Chosen by the magazine's editors and travel experts, the Gold List is a definitive guide to the top hotels worldwide, with properties judged on six criteria - ambience and design, location, food, rooms, leisure facilities and service.
Commenting on the accolade, Derek Picot, regional vice president in Europe for Jumeirah said: "This is an exceptional achievement and I'm incredibly proud of my entire team who all deserve congratulations for the part they have played. It is testimony to our ongoing commitment to offer the very best in luxury hospitality and a great way to prepare for the hotel's 50th anniversary in 2011."
The 5 star hotel in London combines first-class service and facilities, including 216 luxurious rooms and suites, its own premier health and beauty centre - The Peak Health Club and Spa – plus an array of gastronomic delights. Guests can enjoy dinner in the renowned Rib Room restaurant, afternoon tea in the elegant Chinoiserie, a choice of energizing smoothies and healthy buffet lunch option in the Club Room and Champagne and mouthwatering oriental snacks in the decadent GILT Cocktail Lounge. What's more, it's perfectly placed in one of London's most exclusive fashion districts - Sloane Street - and surrounded by designer boutiques and world-renowned department stores including Harvey Nichols and Harrods.
