Park Hotel Amsterdam, member of Warwick International Hotels, awarded as “Best Business Hotel in The Netherlands 2013”
Park Hotel Amsterdam is awarded as “Best Business Hotel, The Netherlands” by the international renowned business travel magazine Business Destinations. Park Hotel has a distinguishing factor when it comes to the story behind the concept, according to Business Destinations.
Park Hotel can be described as a medium-sized hotel with 189 rooms and 700 sqm of meeting & event space, but with the style, personal approach and individuality of a boutique hotel. Business Destinations notes that business hotels are often distinguishable. Park Hotel knows how to combine their business facilities with the intimate feeling and the personal approach of a boutique hotel.
“After the rigorous renovation a few years ago, we wanted to create a mid-sized hotel
with the DNA of some boutique hotels. What we are hearing from our meetings and
event clients, and corporate clients is that they love the hotel because it has all these
elements in it that you would find in a smaller boutique hotel. Business people these
days would like to experience emotion, rather than only the satisfaction of their primary
needs”, says Bram van der Hoek, General Manager of Park Hotel.

WIH represented by Clare Chiu during conference sessions in ITB Asia
Warwick International Hotels has participated for the first time this year to ITB Asia, in Singapore from 19 to 21 October 2011. As hotels from all around the globe were represented on the stand by WIH team members, Clare Chiu was invited to participate in two panels:
"The OTA & Hotel Relationship – Time For a Revolution or Reconciliation?"
With new distribution alternatives emerging – Google and its various tools, social media channels, smartphone apps – the question was is it the right time for hotels to wrestle back control of inventory and customer or is it time for hotels to accept what the OTAs can do, and indeed do better than them, and see them as true partners rather than vampires?
The following panel discussed the above after the opening salvo of Remy Merckx, VP e-Commerce Sales & Distribution, Accor: Clare Chiu, Director of Business Development, Warwick International Hotels, Dan Lynn, CEO, Expedia AirAsia, Roshan Mendis, CEO, ZUJI/Travelocity, Matthew Varley, General Manager, South-east Asia, Wotif Group, Paulo Salvador, Global Vice President of Marketing and Sales And Vice President for EMEA Region, Worldhotels.
