London, 12 July 2023 - The highly anticipated GuestRevu GREAT Awards, which recognise and celebrate Guest-Rated Excellence in Accommodation and Travel, has announced a much-anticipated extension to the entries deadline. In an exciting development, GuestRevu has partnered with leading hospitality tech providers Hop and Cendyn, who were eager to join in celebrating and showcasing the GREATness of their clients' hotels.
“We could not anticipate the astounding influx of both entries from hoteliers but also the massive interest shown by our industry partners. We are amazed and excited to see what these new partnerships mean for our GREAT Awards,” says Chris Alexandre, CEO of GuestRevu.
Due to this exciting collaboration, and the continued interest in the Awards, entries for the GuestRevu GREAT Awards will be reopened for just 72 hours, providing even more hotels with the opportunity to showcase their exceptional guest experiences. The new deadline for entries is now set for the 14th of July.
The awards have already attracted many hotels of all shapes and sizes from around the world, ranging from intimate two-room guesthouses to prestigious 100+ room resorts and hotel chains. To ensure late entries will compete on even footing with the hundreds of hotels that have already entered, all participating hotels will be able to use GuestRevu LITE free of charge, which will retrospectively collect any reviews received during the data collection period, which runs from 1 July to 30 September.
