"Jaz in the City" website receives an award from the American Web Marketing Association
The Internet presence of the new urban hotel brand is recognised in the "Hotel and Lodging" category
Jaz in the City, the new brand from the Steigenberger Hotel Group, has won a prize in the USA for its website. The American Web Marketing Association recognised the new Internet presence of the brand by conferring an award in the category "Hotel and Lodging". The Internet site www.jaz-hotel.com was developed in conjunction with the service provider "Workmatrix".
This year was the 20th occasion on which the award has been made. A high-calibre jury including representatives from companies such as Microsoft, Yahoo and Starwood Hotels & Resorts evaluated web projects from 40 countries. Numerous website development disciplines were scrutinised, and the jury was particularly impressed by the innovative design and interactive features of the Jaz presence. This led to a "Standard of Excellence" rating. Hasan Yigit, Vice President of Jaz Hotel GmbH, commented: "We are delighted that our new young concept has attracted such attention, even in the USA. We would like to thank our partner Workmatrix for their good contribution and are already looking forward to the opening of the second Jaz in the City Hotel in Stuttgart."
As well as boasting an innovative Internet presence, the hotel also makes use of state-of-the-art technology within the building itself. Guests are able to open the doors to their rooms by smart phone, and check-in, check-out and payment also take place via a convenient app. In the conference area, all systems can be controlled via touch panel.
The first hotel to operate under the Jaz in the City brand opened in Amsterdam in 2015. This is an exciting new concept which is young, urban and in tune with pulsating cosmopolitan life. For example, the Jaz Amsterdam enjoys direct access to the Ziggo Dome, a location which attracts well-known stars and stages major concerts. Alongside a close affinity to music, the latest trends from the local restaurant scene and modern room design also lend the hotel a particularly creative character.
The second Jaz Hotel will open in Stuttgart in the spring of 2017.
