Blancpain joins in salute to the three Best Hotelier of the Year
Each year the prestige group of hotels, Leading Hotels of the World, selects three hoteliers as the “Best Hotelier of the Year”.

For the year 2007 the awards go to:
Gold
Halekulani, Honolulu, HI, USA
Ms Janis Clapoff, General Manager

Silver
The Ritz London, London, England, UK
Mr. Stephen Boxall, General Manager

Bronze
The Alex Hotel, New York, NY, USA
Ms Mary Lou Pollack, General Manager

As Blancpain time pieces celebrate the finest values of traditional hand craftsmanship brought up to date with contemporary innovations, there is a natural bond between the manufacture and hoteliers, grand chefs and others, in the domain of art de vivre who hold to similar high standards in their respective métiers. Thus, it is natural that there has been a strong bond between Blancpain and the Leading Hotels of the World, known for its always distinctive, meticulously maintained hotels and unsurpassed hospitality.

It is an honor for any hotel to be accepted into the group and, thus, a particularly rarified prize to be selected from within elite company as “Best Hotelier of the Year”. Blancpain salutes the managers of Hotel Halekulani in Honolulu, The Ritz in London and The Alex Hotel in New York for there achievement. Marking the occasion of the presentation of the award that has taken place on November 15 in Monaco, Ms Clapoff, Mr. Boxall and Ms Pollack have been presented with a Blancpain Leman series, complete calendar and automatic winding watch. This painstakingly hand finished watch is outfitted with Blancpain’s exclusive 100 hour power reserve movement.
