Kempinski Wuxi and Kempinski Yixing have received awards from the 13th Golden Horse Award Gala, the OSCAR of China's Hotel Industry. Being just opened for 3 months, Yixing has been awarded "Best New Opening Hotel" and "City Landmark Hotel". Kempinski Wuxi has also received the "Best Mice & Meeting Hotel".


Guangzhou, March 23, 2013: Two hotels, one team, three awards!

Despite the fact that Kempinski Hotel Wuxi is already 6 years old, the hotel is still one of the top destinations within the Wuxi hospitality industry. With its quality service and outstanding reputation Wuxi's leading international 5*hotel outperformed 100 other top hotels. During the 13th Golden Horse Award Gala Kempinski Hotel Wuxi has been awarded as "Best Mice & Meeting Hotel" in 2013.

Kempinski Hotel Yixing on the other hand only just recently opened on 5th January 2013. Only three months after the opening, the hotel has established itself as the landmark property of Yixing’s hotel industry and the place to be in China’s capital of pottery. During the 13th Golden Horse Award Gala, Kempinski Hotel Yixing was awarded “Best New Opening Hotel” and “City Landmark Hotel” for its excellent facilities, its outstanding architecture and location as well as its first class service.

The Golden Horse Award is the oldest, one of the most important and remarkable hotel industry awards in China. The competition has been fierce, as many international hotel groups are participating. A jury, consisting of professionals and consultants of the Asia Pacific Hotel Association, has selected the hotels according to special criteria and handing out the luxurious golden horse statue to the award winning hotels.

The Management and Team of Kempinski Hotel Wuxi and Kempinski Hotel Yixing are very honored to win these awards. It is not only a great recognition for the two hotels but at the same time a strong driving force for the properties and their people. Sebastien Mariette, the General Manager of both hotels proudly says: "Kempinski Hotel Wuxi was the first European luxury hotel in Wuxi. Our hardware might already be a couple of years old, however our big strength relies in our software. We have a remarkable team in place which allows us to provide the best service. “

It does encourage all our staff and we will continue to carry on maintaining our warm European hospitality, especially our distinguished courtesy and efficient service."
