The Hotel Schloss Leopoldskron received an award by the hotel association `Heritage Hotels of Europe` in November 2018.
The results of the first award ceremony of the "Heritage Hotels of Europe" in the Slovak royal palace Château Béla in November 2018 were eagerly awaited. The young hotel association, which was founded just a few months ago, now has more than 100 historic hotels in nine countries. "With this award we want to honor the best European heritage hotels", explain the two founders Jan Svoboda (Slovakia) and Max Eidlhuber (Austria).
Three of the coveted prizes go to Austrian companies: the Hotel Schloss Leopoldskron (Salzburg City) received the award in the category "Heritage and Culture". The Romantik Hotel Gmachl Elixhausen (Salzburger Land) as well as the Strasserwirt (Strassen, Osttirol) also received an award.
The award winners were judged and selected in a combination of audience and expert vote. For several months, hotel guests had the opportunity to vote for their favorite hotel in a specific category. At the end of this public voting, a jury of 7 judges decided which of the hotels nominated by the guests deserved the distinction in each category. The reviews on various online rating platforms also contributed to the decision.
