Swissotel Hotels & Resorts Selected for Expedia(R) Insiders' Select(TM) 2009

Zurich, Switzerland (PressExposure) July 22, 2009 -- For Expedia Insiders' Select™ 2009, the Swiss hospitality pioneer is represented by Swissôtel Krasnye Holmy, Moscow, Swissôtel Talinn, Estonia and Swissôtel Bremen, Germany in Europe whilst Swissôtel Merchant Court, Singapore, Swissôtel Sydney, Australia and Swissôtel Nankai, Osaka fly the flag for Swissôtel Hotels & Resorts in Asia Pacific. Swissôtel currently manages 28 hotels & resorts globally, with 15 properties in Europe and 10 in Asia Pacific.

These six properties join an elite company of 850 hotels & resorts worldwide. This figure represents less than 1% of all the 99,000 properties reviewed on, which is home to more traveller reviews than any other online travel portal. Swissôtel Nankai, Osaka is only one of two hotels in Osaka to have made it to the list and Swissôtel Bremen, Germany makes this exclusive list only having just opened a year ago in July 2008.

The Expedia® Insiders' Select™ 2009 was first introduced in 2007 by Expedia® to recognise the very best hotels which have been identified as consistently delivering superior service, an exceptional guest experience and notable value. These outstanding service qualities and extraordinary value are measured based on three key criteria: Travellers Opinions, Destination Expertise of Expedia®'s 400 front-line Market Managers and the evaluation on the best value for money.

To compile this highly illustrious list, Expedia® reviewed over 99,000 hotels and resorts. Each property was assigned a numerical score that was completely independent of advertisers and partners and only those with the highest scores made it onto the Insiders' Select List.

"Expedia® Insiders' Select™ 2009 is especially significant to us as we have always prided ourselves in delivering outstanding quality and service as well as exceptional value for money. Guests these days rely tremendously on shared experiences on travel portals and we are delighted that our 'Passion for Perfection' Swiss hospitality is reaping complimentary reviews", says Ms Petra Goetting, VP, Marketing & Sales, Swissôtel Hotels & Resorts.
