Ritz-Carlton most popular hotel brand in China
Beijing, China – 10 July 2017 –
The Ritz-Carlton Hotel Company, a Marriott International luxury brand, was honoured with two top awards by the highly-respected Hurun Report’s Chinese Luxury Traveller Report 2017.
Announced at the recent International Luxury Travel Mart in Shanghai, the brand was recognised as the “Most Popular Luxury Hotel”, as voted for by Chinese high net-worth individuals for the second consecutive year. In addition, Ritz-Carlton Rewards also topped the voting as the “Most Popular Luxury Hotel membership programme”.
“Chinese luxury travellers are sophisticated and savvy – they seek authentic experiences wherever they travel and true personal service is highly valued, which is why The Ritz-Carlton has been recognised with these two prestigious awards,” said Rupert Hoogewerf, chairman and chief researcher of The Hurun Report.
The report also revealed that affluent Chinese are travelling overseas with increasing frequency and their choice of experiences is reflected in their accommodation choices. In winning The Most Popular Hotel award, The Ritz-Carlton was recognised for its globally renowned personalised service, which Chinese travellers ranked as their top factor when choosing a hotel.
The Luxury Chinese Traveller Report 2017 by Hurun Research is based on the responses of 334 high-end travellers from cities across China with an average travel consumption of US$55,000.
