At the Hotelier Middle East Awards, we aim to shine a light on the hardworking men and women, from the concierge to the laundry managers, who each make an invaluable contribution to the amazingly complicated machine that is a modern hotel. Over 600 guests are expected to attend the event, but only 19 will walk away with a coveted trophy.

Housekeeper of the Year

It's one of the more thankless tasks within the industry, but no less crucial. An effective housekeeper needs to be both diligent and detail-oriented, able to locate and cut costs when needed, and able to show leadership to one of the hardest-working teams in the business. Our nominees show these skills as a matter of course, and then go above and beyond the call of duty, using targeted team-building exercises to take their team to the next level.
