Established in 2007, the Concierge Choice Awards (CCA) recognize companies, organizations, and individuals who create exceptional experiences for New York City visitors. Selected by the New York City Association of Hotel Concierges (NYCAHC), these prestigious awards are bestowed upon the city’s elite in the tourist, theater, restaurant, retail, service, and transportation industries.
When seeking guidance on the city’s finest destinations, New York City hotel guests trust their concierges. That is the reason members of NYCAHC are the perfect judges for the awards – they are professionals who know the best of New York in any given category. While NYCAHC can only choose one winner in each division, it is an honor simply to be nominated for a CCA.
Every fall, Davler Media Group, publisher of City Guide magazines, and the NYCAHC celebrate excellence in New York City hospitality and service by hosting the Concierge Choice Awards Dinner. This black-tie event brings together concierges from the city’s top hotels and leaders in the restaurant, retail, theater and attraction industries. The evening allows those who create superior New York visitor experiences to socialize and exchange ideas in an elegant setting, while being appreciated for their commitment to serving New York City’s guests.
The 2016 Concierge Choice Awards dinner will be held September 26, 2016, at Battery Gardens. A portion of the proceeds from the CCA will benefit the Les Clefs d'Or Foundation and NYCAHC Charitable Fund. Visit NYCAHC's page on Facebook.
