Last night the Boutique Hotelier’s Personal Service Star Awards 2017 were presented to an audience of hoteliers and their staff at the Hilton London Olympia. These awards celebrate the hard work and dedication of the staff that work within the boutique hotels throughout the country. These individuals have gone above and beyond to give their guests the best possible experience and to create lasting memories for them.
