Amsterdam – 17 March 2017 – Crowne Plaza® Changi Airport has been voted the World’s Best Airport Hotel by international travellers for the third consecutive year, in the World Airport Awards, announced by Skytrax on 14 March 2017 at the awards ceremony at Passenger Terminal Expo in Amsterdam, Netherlands. The hotel received its first award in 2015.
Edward Plaisted, CEO of Skytrax, commented: “This is a most remarkable achievement for Crowne Plaza® Changi Airport. After retaining their title as the World’s Best Airport Hotel in 2016, to have succeeded for a third consecutive year underlines their popularity with international travellers, in what is a most competitive award category.”
The 2017 awards for best airport hotels are based on nominations by travellers around the world. The survey evaluates key performance indicators of the guest experience, including overall experience, hotel service staff standards, cleanliness and comfort of rooms and accessibility between terminal and hotel.
Sunshine Wong, General Manager of Crowne Plaza® Changi Airport said: “It is indeed a great honour to be bestowed with the coveted World’s Best Airport Hotel Award for three consecutive years. This global recognition is a huge accolade which serves as a testimony of our commitment towards service excellence. On behalf of the hotel, I would like to congratulate our team who continuously strives to improve the guest experience and create a Great Hotel Guests Love. I would also like to take this opportunity to thank all our guests for the confidence and support through the years and we look forward to seeing you again.”
As the World’s Best Airport Hotel, its strategic location and seamless connectivity to Changi Airport perfectly caters to transiting passengers, while its proximity to nearby business parks makes it a suitable choice for business travellers.
With a total capacity of 563 rooms, Crowne Plaza® Changi Airport is poised to cater to an increasing number of visitors to Singapore as Changi Airport continues to grow as a key regional aviation hub with upcoming developments such as Terminal 4 and Jewel Changi Airport in the next few years, and with the tripartite collaboration between Singapore Tourism Board, Changi Airport Group and Royal Caribbean to bring in more fly-cruise tourists to Singapore.
