Citadines Islington London, part of The Ascott Limited (Ascott) and the newest addition to the Citadines Apart’hotel portfolio in London, has won Best Property in the 2021 Serviced Apartment Awards for Best Property 71+ apartments category.

Around 300 leading industry players attended a black-tie ceremony in London for an evening of celebration to mark the achievements of the industry’s brightest stars. The awards recognised the outstanding dedication of the industry during the course of the pandemic, as well as those making a difference in how the industry operates.

The judges commented: “The staff and customer engagement strategies are incredible and the innovation in the set-up of the service is wonderful. For a newly established business, the sales and marketing plan was very smartly designed and executed, and the overall performance is a just indication of the level of effort and dedication that is put in place. I was particularly impressed with both the internal and external wellbeing of both staff and clients, with yoga, bike hire and ‘Space as a service’ that can also be used for fitness and EAP and mental health support for their staff.”
