Matt Turner, editor-in-chief of Sleeper Magazine, said: "This was a vintage year for the European Hotel Design Awards. The shortlist reflected the diversity and dynamism of the sector, with a great balance between independent and branded properties, and a wide variety of projects from restored grandes dames to contemporary boutique hotels. A mix of old and new Europe was also revealed in the winners, with the likes of the Peninsula Paris and The Beaumont London sitting alongside Mandarin Oriental's newly built Bodrum resort. The overall winner, Les Bains in Paris, was described as 'a perfect melange of historical significance and design vision, encapsulating the new wave of hospitality based on old world roots.' We were also delighted to honour Nick Jones, founder of Soho House, with the Outstanding Contribution award. Nick has reinvented the hospitality experience and been an inspiration to the hotel industry."

Also celebrated on the evening was the winner of the Radical Innovation Award, organised by John Hardy Group in association with Sleeper Magazine, a movement which challenges the hotel industry to elevate the guest experience using new thinking in design and operations. The winning project Zoku, from the Netherlands, is a concept for a home-office hybrid as a new type of extended hotel, meeting market demand for a new style of live/work space. Zoku was submitted by Hans Meyer and Marc Jongerius and designed by concrete.

The 2015 European Hotel Design Awards dinner was held in London's Park Plaza Westminster Bridge, hosted by Celia Geyer and Sleeper Magazine Editor-at-Large, Guy Dittrich.
