One of Queenstown’s finest boutique hotels, Hotel St Moritz, has been recognised for its business excellence in the accommodation sector. The hotel won the Air New Zealand Excellence in Hospitality and Accommodation Award at the Queenstown Chamber of Commerce Business Awards. Award organisers had noted that entries into this year’s competition were of an extremely high standard, so general manager Jo Finnigan was particularly thrilled that St Moritz fared so well.

“The award is testament to the hard work and dedication of all our staff, past and present, to deliver on our vision to be recognised as one of New Zealand’s leading boutique hotels,” said Finnigan.

“We have a charming and unique property that’s defined by our long-standing reputation, service delivery and commitment to excellence.”

The five-star 134-room Hotel St Moritz has had much to celebrate in recent months. Earlier this year it announced a major ‘brand shift’ within the luxury accommodation market in Queenstown by joining the Sofitel brand universe.
