Agoda.com presents its Gold Circle Awards celebrating hotel excellence

Agoda.com, Asia’s leading hotel booking site and part of Nasdaq-listed Priceline Group (Nasdaq: PCLN), has announced the 2012 recipients of its prestigious Gold Circle Awards, recognizing hotels that lead by example in the competitive hospitality industry.

Launched in 2009, the awards are given to Agoda.com partners who are committed to accommodating the unique needs of the online booking industry, which has seen significant and steady global growth as technology continues to make online booking faster, easier and more convenient.

Previous Gold Circle Award winners were chosen because of their outstanding performance on Agoda.com, a high number of positive customer reviews, and their utilization of Agoda.com’s custom-built Yield Control System (YCS). This year, however, the bar has been raised a bit higher, and new judging criteria make the list even more exclusive.

Agoda.com now also takes into account a greater amount of data, including aggregate scores for customer reviews, top-performing properties, competitive pricing, and for showing an understanding of the complex business dynamics that define the industry.

Commenting on this year’s awards, Mr. Errol Cooke, Director of Hotels – Global at Agoda.com said, “We are delighted to recognize our hotel partners for the 2012 agoda.com Gold Circle Awards. Now in their fifth year, the awards are recognized as a mark of excellence in online distribution. This year, we have awarded hotels across the globe for their commitment to online revenue management and consistently offering great value at a fair price to Agoda.com customers.”

When guests of any of this year’s 494 winners see the Agoda.com Gold Circle Award upon arrival, they can be assured that their stay will be relaxing, comfortable, and up to the standards that Agoda.com customers have come to expect.
