Cycas Hospitality Lands Double Whammy at Serviced Apartment Awards 2016

Cycas Hospitality was a double award winner at the first Serviced Apartment Awards.

The team took home the award for ‘Best Independent Operator’ while Giovanni Valentini, GM for Staybridge Suites London-Vauxhall, managed by Cycas Hospitality, scooped the accolade for ‘Rising Star’.

Roughly 350 guests from around the world gathered at the Grange Hotel Tower Bridge for the gala dinner presentation. Judging the awards was an independent panel of consultants, designers, journalists and service providers, while the ‘Rising Star’ and ‘Industry Inspiration’ winners were chosen by Serviced Apartment News readers via an online poll, drawing more than 8,700 voters.

“The exceptional standard of the nominees demonstrates the advances of this exciting sector and to pick up not just one, but two awards is a fantastic feat”, says John Wagner, Director of Cycas Hospitality. “We are absolutely thrilled with winning ‘Best Independent Operator’.

This award belongs to everyone at Cycas Hospitality, recognising the hard work and achievements of each and every one of our team. I am also equally delighted that Giovanni has been acknowledged for his exceptional work in launching Staybridge Suites London – Vauxhall, his dedication as GM has been nothing short of outstanding.”

The Serviced Apartment Awards are the first and only dedicated awards created for and by the serviced apartment, aparthotel, extended stay and short term rental industry.
