JW Marriott Hotel Jakarta was awarded the BEST NEW BUSINESS HOTEL IN ASIA by the Business Asia magazine and Bloomberg TV Asia Pacific. The award is based on stringent criteria such as quality assurance and guest satisfaction ratings. It is awarded to hotels that are open less than two years.

General Manager John Jaskula officially received this prestigious award at the 5th Annual Best Business Hotels in Asia Awards Ceremony earlier this month at the Portman Ritz-Carlton Shanghai. 

"We are proud to have achieved this great recognition," says Jaskula. "The accomplishment is even more meaningful knowing that we were directly nominated by our guests. This award is really an excellent present for our first anniversary."

The Best Business Hotels in Asia Awards, now in their fifth year, have become one of the most sought after prizes in the highly competitive Asia Pacific Hotel industry. It was established in 1998 to recognize the Hotels that provide the business traveler with excellence in service and facilities. The awards honor the top Business Hotels from 14 countries across in the Asia Pacific in 17 different categories. 

The awards process involved more than 85 hotels in Asia Pacific. The nominees in each category were chosen by a panel of industry experts and the winners were determined by popular vote via a ballot paper, published in Business Asia Magazine and available online at the First Charlton website.
