Western Australia’s most outstanding accommodation hotels, resorts and staff were acknowledged at the AHA Accommodation Awards for Excellence on August 21.
AHA(WA) CEO, Bradley Woods, said WA should be proud of the high calibre of accommodation offerings across the state, along with the high level of employee dedication and service.
“Our reputation as a premier destination for corporate and leisure travellers is upheld thanks to the commitments and investments made by our hotel industry,” Mr Woods commented.
The AHA Accommodation Awards for Excellence highlight WA’s leading hotel venues, their staff, and their commitment to building the state’s reputation as a tourism destination.
“The hotel accommodation industry in Perth and regional WA is focused on delivering an exceptional experience that guests will remember, and return for,” Mr Woods said.
“Now, more than ever, it’s imperative that we support our hospitality industry, and recognise the hard work, investment and long hours put into making WA’s venues outstanding,” he concluded.
