2019 has been an absolutely outstanding year for the Hilton Diagonal Mar. This year has seen the fabulous cosmopolitan hotel be awarded with an array of impressive prizes from the World Travel Awards™, namely Europe’s Leading Meetings & Conferences Hotel’ and ‘Spain’s Leading Business Hotel’ (for the second year in a row). Now, to top it all off, the hotel has received the incredibly prestigious accolade of ‘World’s leading Business Hotel’. Well, you know what they say, “good things come in threes”!

The stellar World Travel Awards™, celebrating distinction across all key sectors of the travel, tourism and hospitality industries, are colloquially referred to as the ‘Oscars’ of the industry; their awards recognized globally as the ultimate hallmark of industry excellence. Thus, for the Hilton Diagonal Mar to have received three awards this year alone is a monumental achievement!

Located a stone’s throw from the vibrant beach-side district of Poblenou, bursting with character, the stylish Hilton Diagonal Mar is fast propelling itself into the highest echelons of the already glittering hotel industry here in Barcelona. The nearby district of Poblenou is positively a hive of activity, playfully juxtaposing Barcelona’s rich past with its progressive, forward thinking future. This stimulating atmosphere permeates the hotel, forming one of its essential characteristics; as a dynamic, contemporary and exciting hub, with the ability to attract visitors from all walks of life, be they international business clients, emerging city talent, or, naturally, holidaymakers and locals alike.

Alongside receiving awards from the World Travel Awards body, the hotel has also had the illustrious honour of a Michelin Star bestowed upon it for its exceptional restaurant Aürt, just a mere 8 months after opening! Reflecting on these awards, Joachim Hartl (General Area Manager of Hilton Iberian Peninsula) proudly commented: 

“It is so rewarding to see that our hard work has once again been reflected with these awards…which in turn not only consolidates us as a leading business destination in Spain, but also for visitors worldwide. Without a doubt this has been our most dynamic year, and we are putting all our efforts into continuing to offer distinguished experiences to every type of traveler for the next coming years.”

In short, to quote Frank Sinatra, it was a very good year. The many prestigious accolades that the Hilton Diagonal Mar has received this year alone are fitting testament to the hotel’s brilliance, the exceptionally high calibre of its facilities and services, its ethical and environmental conscience and its eloquent interpretation of cosmopolitan contemporaneity.
