Hotel Jen Scoops “Best Budget Hotel” at the TTG Asia Travel Awards 2008

Hotel Jen picked up its first prestigious award last night at TTG Asia’s 19th annual Travel Award Ceremony held at the Centara Grand & Bangkok Convention Centre.

The hotel, which only opened its doors in March of this year was named “Best Budget Hotel” for Asia Pacific at the glitzy ceremony attended by some 700 hospitality professionals.  

Speaking after the ceremony, Mr. Gordon Aeria, General Manager of Hotel Jen, said: “We are delighted and honoured to have won this high-profile award.  The TTG Asia Travel Awards are particularly noted, and to be recognised as leaders in our field by consumers of the product itself is superb.  We are focused on delivering affordable chic accommodation and look forward to developing the Hotel Jen brand over the coming years.”

Taking its name from a Chinese character which signifies the Confucian ideal of love and goodwill towards people, Hotel Jen aims to bring the gracious traditions of Asian hospitality into the modern hotel context.  Its approach is to provide travellers with the essentials of a quality hotel room without the expensive extras. A clean and functional room, a comfortable bed and a great shower are at the heart of the Hotel Jen experience.  The chic, modern design showcases clean lines and functional creativity, and the guest rooms are highlighted with natural colours and light wood finishes.

Through natural, gracious service and thoughtful attention to details, Hotel Jen offers an affordable, contemporary interpretation of traditional hospitality appeals to a growing class of entrepreneurs and travellers from around the world.

The much coveted annual TTG awards is recognised as a hallmark of excellence and since its introduction in 1989 has grown from a humble 10 awards to 72 awards spanning across four categories.

They not only serve as a benchmark for high standards across the industry but also as a trajectory for the travel industry’s advancements – recognising the luminaries of the travel industry from across the board from airlines and hotels to spa operators.

Thousands of votes were cast by TTG readers across Asia Pacific over a designated voting period before the final winners were announced last night.
