AccorHotels is delighted to be named as a finalist in the 2015 Premier of NSW’s Export Awards in the category of NSW Asian Exporter for its Optimum Service Standards program for Chinese visitation to Australia.
The Optimum Service Standards (OSS) program ensures that Chinese tourists receive the highest level of service standards when they visit AccorHotels in Australia. The OSS include Mandarin speaking staff and cultural training, translated hotel welcome kits, Chinese newspapers and tailored food and beverage items to the preferences of Chinese guests.

We congratulate AccorHotels on being named a 2015 Premier’s NSW Export Awards finalist.”
