Millennium Hotels and Resorts (MHR) was recently conferred “Best International Hotel Management Group of China” at the 2021 AHF Asia Hotel and Travel Forum Annual Meeting and 16th China Hotel Starlight Awards Ceremony. The event, which was held in Shanghai, China, also saw MHR win at the property level, with Millennium Resort Wuyishan listed among the “Top 10 Resort Hotels of China”.
A total of 250 hotels and hospitality groups took part in this year’s awards. For the “Best International Hotel Management Groups of China” category, judges reviewed the company’s reputation and size of its hotel portfolio, among other criteria. MHR joins an illustrious list of hotel groups including Accor, Marriott International, Hyatt and Shangri-La Hotels & Resorts, who were previously accorded this prestigious award. To clinch its spot among China’s top ten resorts, Millennium Resort Wuyishan was shortlisted from a list of 30 hotels.
“As an international hotel group that has been in the Chinese market for more than ten years, Millennium Hotels and Resorts is honoured to receive these awards. We have always made it our main focus to provide high-quality services and these two awards affirm the confidence that the Chinese market has in us,” said MHR North Asia Senior Vice President Mr Lawrence Yip.
