For the 5th time the award goes to an Italian hotelier

This year, as in previous years over 4,000 travel advisors and partners gathered at the Bellagio Hotel in Las Vegas, and at the end of the event, the personalities who best represent the sunconditional passion of hoteliers were honoured. This is the 5th time that an Italian hotelier has been awarded but only the second time that it went to the owner of an independent hotel. 

Honouring leaders in hospitality

Valentina De Santis, who has been involved in the family business for over ten years, was already named Italian Hotelier of the Year last year. The award was established for the first time in 2021 as a tribute to Patrizio Cipollini, historical general manager of the Four Seasons of Florence, a recognized master of style and elegance in hospitality, who was also named Virtuoso Hotelier of the Year in 2018. 

“My teams are the true winners” 

“This prestigious award… is a significant honour that belongs first and foremost to my parents, who created something magical and taught me to cherish and respect it,” said Valentina De Santis. “Ans then it belongs to my large extended family, as well as to my incredible teams at the Grand Hotels Tremezzo, Passalacqua, and Sheraton Lake Como. They are the true winners, the legends.”
