The five-star Corinthia Hotel Lisbon was named the Luxury Hotel & Conference Center of the European Continent at the 2014 World Luxury Hotel Awards held in South Africa in recognition for its world class facilities and service excellence.    

The Corinthia Hotel Lisbon was selected from over 1,000 hotels in 145 countries across 50 categories for luxury hotels as the Luxury Hotel & Conference Center of the European Continent by international tour operators, travel agents and hotel guests who have the opportunity to cast their votes annually.

The Gala Ceremony held in December in South Africa, marked the eighth annual World Luxury Hotel Awards, recognized as a global organization providing luxury hotels with recognition for their world class facilities and guest service excellence.

Reuben Mifsud, the general manager of Corinthia Hotel Lisbon, said, "We are extremely honored to be recognized as the Luxury Hotel & Conference Centre of the European Continent, it underscores the exceptional professionalism and consistent guest driven focus of our teams. Being acknowledged by such a prestigious organization on the same year of our 10 th Anniversary celebration makes us tremendously proud.  We are determined to maintain our exceptionally high standard of service to all guests."

The Corinthia Hotel Lisbon inaugurated in March the newly renovated Lobby and Lounge Bar. The new look has created a high-end 'residential' warm welcome and the feel of true luxury where guests can enjoy a more intimate atmosphere and feel more comfort.
