Over 20 New Candidates to join FAMOUSHOTELS in 2009

( words)

Over 20 new candidates* will be presented to the jury in November 2009. Should all applications be accepted by the jury, The Most Famous Hotels in the World will have 400 members by the end of this year.

"It is not about growth!" insists Andreas Augustin, president of the non-profit organisation; "it is about guarding our history and heritage.

"With the most famous hotels in the world we are taking care of the history of our hospitality industry. 

"On the traveller's side we create the perfect dream of a bygone era, which of course takes place in a presen-day environment. With our work we also influence the owners side of the business: we  inspire renovation, investment and creation of history related merchandising. We have made history one of the USPs in the industry. This is inspiration during a time when I read that 90 per cent of investores take refuge in the 2-star hotels-market."

The over 20 candidates - presented to the jury for the first time in history - are from these cities or regions:

Austria: Arlberg region
Bermuda
Bulgaria, Varna
China: Hangzhou
Denmark, Copenhagen
England: London
Eritrea: Asmara
Ethiopia: Addis Ababa
Fiji: Levuka
Germany: Bremen
India: Bangalore
India: Calcutta
India: Chennai
India: Ooty
India: Shimla
Russia: Moskau
Switzerland: Maloja
Ukraine, Yalta
