Read the full report here
The Serviced Apartment Awards are the only awards to exclusively recognise excellence across the serviced apartment, extended stay, aparthotel and short-term rental sectors.
Now in our 5th year, we have again received hundreds of entries from around the world - which shows the impact and showcases excellence within our sector.
These were reviewed by a panel of independent judges which includes journalists, architects, designers, investors, consultants and travel buyers.
In 2020 we have introduced two new categories.
The first - Best Coworking or Coliving Development, is in recognition of the growth of coliving and coworking in hospitality as the lines between asset classes continues to blur.
The second - the Profit with Purpose award - is a response to the increased importance of sustainability, diversity and inclusivity in best business practice.
The standard of the entries in 2020 was outstanding, and, as ever, the response to the Readers Choice categories has been incredible, with thousands of votes cast for the Rising Star and Industry Inspiration categories.
Two categories – the Rising Star and Industry Inspiration awards – have once again been voted for by Serviced Apartments News readers in their thousands.
