York Marriott has been shortlisted for not one but TWO White Rose Awards - the biggest tourism awards in the UK.
York Marriott has made it through to the final of two categories: Large Hotel of the Year and Business Tourism Award.
Winners will be announced at the glittering ceremony on November 11 at New Dock Hall near the Royal Armouries, Leeds.
Winners of each category will not only scoop one of these prestigious accolades, but they are also entered into the national tourism awards next year.
Speaking on behalf of York Marriott Hotel, General Manager Mark Leyland commented “Being selected for not one but TWO awards is a testament to our team who work tirelessly to deliver consistently a first class service at our hotel. York Marriott is the perfect leisure and business environment but it is without a doubt the warm, friendly and personable atmosphere our team delivers that makes our business and leisure guests come back to us time and again”.
Gary Verity, Chief Executive of Welcome to Yorkshire, said: "Competition this year was so fierce that every business making it to the shortlist should consider it a huge achievement in itself as they have had to contend with some real quality competition. It's always a close run thing, but there's every chance they could go on and win one of these prestigious White Rose Awards."
More than a thousand people are expected to attend the awards and tickets plus more information are available at www.whiteroseawards.com
