It also carries features from leading journalists and celebrated personalities, a release issued by the hotel stated. The awards are decided by regular contributors to Business Destinations, industry professionals, and experienced business travelers and magazine subscribers celebrating the top hotel around the world under the luxury, business and service hotel categories, the release also said. The hotel has been recognized for achieving overall excellence in innovativeness, unparalleled standards in product and service, corporate values and sustainable practices. One of its unique offerings in addition to its international service levels, the hotel has also launched the first purpose built floating venue in the country “8 on the lake”. It was pointed out that Cinnamon Lakeside was the first in South East Asia to offer a “trolley-less” housekeeping service instead using baskets without cluttering their corridors, Mr. Gruhier explained. A further step ahead it provides an improved service for executive floor check-ins as guests are ushered in immediately upon arrival with priority check-in carried out at the room itself.

This is carried out with the use of a wireless tablet and credit card machine system, the hotel’s GM said. Mr. Gruhier observed that the hotel management was dedicated towards providing space for training their staff and involved in further development of human skills. These training programmes would ensure that in the future the new staff would be able to take on the new properties, he said.
