Serviced Apartment Awards Winner 2016
London, England, March 21st, 2016 – Over 350 industry leaders attended the black tie ceremony to celebrate the best in the serviced apartment, extended stay and short-term rental industries. 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. The panel of independent judges each judged two awards, looking for clear evidence of achievement based on the judging criteria set.

The Serviced Apartment News said, “Above all, winning entries will be exceptional in the success they have delivered. Innovative solutions to problems being faced in the industry will receive extra credit, and providing tangible evidence of how the solution benefited the guest, provider or industry as a whole will stand out against those that do not.”

Andrew Fowler, director of Urban Villa, said: "It's super news that the inaugural Serviced Apartment News Awards' will be a standalone event. Putting the spotlight on the individuals and businesses, and rewarding best in class achievements, will help drive the serviced apartment, aparthotel and extended stay sectors' quality standards and awareness. That's great news for all of us".
