Hotel Nacional of Cuba nominated for major tourist award

Havana, Dec 18.- An official statement from the Hotel Nacional of Cuba in this capital informed that the facility is nominated for the 2020 World Travel Awards (WTA), considered the ‘Oscars’ of the hotel industry.

 

The message indicates that the Nacional appears in the category of Cuba’s Leading Hotel 2020 along with others such as the Gran Hotel Manzana Kempinski, Hotel Florida, Iberostar Parque Central and Melia Cohiba (all in Havana), and Melia Cayo Coco in northeastern Cuba.

The WTA 2020 final will be held in Moscow, as the Russian capital received the title of Best Destination City in this year’s edition.
