Global group honours Da Vinci’s Hotel


The Ramada Da Vinci’s Hotel has been honoured as one of the best in a global group of more than 7,000 hotels.

The Culmore Road hotel has been given the Silver award for outstanding quality by Wyndham Hotel Group, the world’s largest hotel company.

Unveiled at the Wyndham Hotel Group’s Europe, Middle East and Africa Awards event in London, the accolade places Da Vinci’s Hotel Derry among the very best in the hotel company’s global portfolio. Da Vinci’s Hotel had the second highest quality scores for the brand as measured by the Hotel Group’s audit in the areas of guest service, cleanliness and compliance with brand standards.

In addition, the hotel was praised for its ongoing commitment to its chosen charity Children in Crossfire. Ramada Da Vinci’s Hotel organised multiple events including a firewalk, a comedy night with Brendan O’Carroll and a local business luncheon, alongside promoting the charity throughout the hotel to guests.

Rui Barros of Wyndham Hotel Group said “Ramada Da Vinci’s Hotel Derry is a truly fantastic hotel which obviously places great pride in the quality of the guest experience as well as in the livelihoods of others.”

Andy O’Doherty, the hotel’s General Manager, said: “This is a great honour for our hotel and a testament to the hard work of our wonderful staff. This award gives our team great confidence as we prepare to welcome 1000’s of new tourists to the Derry in 2013, this year is our chance to show off and show what Derry has to offer and all the team at Da Vinci’s Hotel are ready for that challenge. We look forward to continuing to serve our valued guests and ensuring that they are met with the high standards and quality accommodation that they should expect from a Ramada hotel.”
