The coveted China Golden pillow Awards, now on its sixth year as the leading awards programme for China’s hospitality industry, is organized by the 21st Century Business Herald & Business Travel Magazine and is recognised as one of the most prestigious hotel evaluations in China and Asia.

Accor China won the award of 2009 China’s Most Investment-value International Hotel Management and Mr. Robert Murray, Senior Vice President of Accor Greater China, won the award of “Leaders of the Hotel Industry of 2009” two years in a row.

All along, Sofitel has been known for its French elegance and quality of service. These awards not only further enhance its positioning in the international market, but also motivate continuous improvement in providing the best of hospitality. All 150 Sofitel hotels combine French elegance with the unique culture of each region, placing them among the globe’s leading brands. By using scarves of Hermes, the French traditional luxury brand renowned for their high quality production and perfect artistic design, in its guestrooms and other hotel areas, Sofitel Forebase Chongqing creates a unique and captivating design aesthetic and brings the hotel a never-before-seen artistic ambience.
The accolades endorse Accor’s reputation in hotel development and management in China, and “will certainly raise the confidence of our associates and attract more investors to partner with Accor”, added Mr. Murray.
