Commenting on this year’s award, Matt Turner, Editor-in-chief of Sleeper Magazine, said:

“Once again, the European Hotel Design Awards have recognised the incredible diversity of talent and the ingenuity of the hospitality sector today. Our overall winner, Lanserhof Tegernsee beat off intense competition from runners up such as EDITION London, Aman Canal Grande and the Chedi Andermatt. The panel agreed that the design had created a new paradigm in hospitality, combining hotel, wellness resort and healthcare facility. On a personal note, it was particularly gratifying to see Ace Hotel London triumph and that we were able to honour the memory of its creator, Alex Calderwood. This is another genuinely innovative project that has moved the industry forward, reinvented the hospitality experience and contributed to its local community.”

The 2014 European Hotel Design Awards dinner was held in London’s Park Plaza Westminster Bridge, hosted by BBC arts programme presenter, Katie Derham and Sleeper Magazine Editor-at-Large, Guy Dittrich.
