Urban Stay Wins Serviced Apartment Awards 2018 As Best Operator of 51 to 200 Units
Urban Stay has won the Serviced Apartment Awards 2018 in the category as Best Serviced Apartment Operator of 51 to 200 units. The prestigious awards ceremony was held at the annual International Serviced Apartment Awards 2018. After only four years of operating in the corporate housing sector, Urban Stay has been recognised as best serviced apartments company in the year of 2018. The award was given to Urban Stay at the 3rd annual International Serviced Apartment Awards by Serviced Apartment News held at the Grange Hotel Tower Bridge on March 19th 2018. The gala night event was attended by over 300 guests of the serviced apartment, aparthotel, extended stay and short term rental industry. It is therefore an exceptional honour for the whole Urban Stay team to stand out as one of the leading international serviced apartment companies. Urban Stay is very proud and humbled to have been recognised for implementing forward-thinking initiatives in this sector and for providing outstanding short stay accommodation and service.
The judges’ comments at the Serviced Apartment Awards 2018 were: “An excellent submission providing a comprehensive overview of the brand and how they engage with their guests. The innovation they delivered through the creation of pet welcome packs and other key value adds stood out.”
In addition, Urban Stay’s Co-founder and Director of Finance and Marketing Jenny Dreiling was also shortlisted for the Rising Star Award – an award demonstrating best practice, innovation and excellence on an individual level. It is the third year in a row that one of Urban Stay’s directors has been nominated for the Rising Star award. Urban Stay’s Director of Operations and Business Development James Swift has been nominated in 2016 and 2017 at the ASAP Serviced Apartment Awards, and his partner Jenny Dreiling now in 2018 at the awards hosted by Serviced Apartment News. Urban Stay therefore is very proud to have such strong and well recognized leaders in the team who’s capabilities and skills complement each other perfectly.
James Swift Co-founder and Director of Operations and Business Development adds: “It is an incredible achievement to have won this. It’s been an amazing, challenging and rewarding 4 years of having started Urban Stay. We’re very proud to have won this award and it reconfirm that what we’re doing is going into the right direction, for our guests, industry partners, our team and the industry overall. We look forward to another 4 successful years and will take this opportunity to set the bar even higher year by year. Thank you to everyone for your continued support.”
Ms. Jenny Dreiling, Urban Stay’s Director of Finance and Marketing added: “We were overwhelmed by winning this award. We were up against some fierce competition and the win came as a complete surprise to us. It is the biggest achievement for Urban Stay thus far. To have won in such a prestigious category only after 4 years of operation and also to be recognised on an individual level is an honour. I’m very proud of the whole team.”
