We have been an official Davis Cup sponsor since 2004. For NH Hoteles it is a great honor since the unique profile of this tennis competition  makes it possible for us to reach millions of viewers in more than 170 countries and in 5 continents! Exciting, right? We think so, and for that reason we are thrilled to announce that we have renewed our Davis Cup sponsorship for another three years! 

Last November 16th to 18th, the 100th Davis Cup by BNP Paribas Finals were held at the O2 Arena, Prague and as we did in the semifinals we wanted to involve our online community to this historic event. In this sense, we reactivated our #NHDavisCup contest where fans could send their messages through our NH Hoteles Facebook, via @nh_hoteles Twitter with the hashtag #NHdaviscup or through our special NH Hoteles Davis Cup micro-site

Emilio Arévalo was the lucky winner!  We were extremely happy since he is truly a NH fan, always full of positive energy, smiles and better yet an infectious passion for tennis. Emilio won the amazing prize of two round trip flights to Prague, two tickets to the Davis Cup final, a stay at our brand new NH Prague and an invitation to the final dinner with the Davis Cup tennis players! Sounds great? Let’s hear from the lucky winner all the details of this unforgettable experience! 

Thank you to everyone for participating and providing amazing messages of support for the players and don’t forget to check out NH Hoteles Facebook and Twitter profiles daily to learn more about our contests that are tailor made for fans like you.

Emilio, how did you find out about our #NHDavisCup contest? 

Through Facebook. I’m a fan of NH Hoteles fan page and that’s how I found about it.

I just couldn’t believe it. I had to read it several times before realizing that the name written next to “winner” was mine. It’s an indescribable excitement. Winner!!!!! I still can’t believe my eyes.

At NH we love tennis and we have been lucky to sponsor the Davis Cup since 2004, have you always been a tennis fan?

Yes, I’ve always liked watching the playoffs and I usually follow the Grand Slams if I can.

The O2 Arena at Prague was filled with energy and passion, since you were there at first row, can you tell us a little bit more about the mood at the Davis Cup Final?. 

The matches were more than exciting given both teams are pretty even and it was a true clash of titans. Besides, the tickets you guys gave us were awesome and we had the chance to live the final first hand.

On Saturday 17th we invited you to assist to the official Davis Cup cocktail party, which we hosted. Could you tell us about it?

It was a very tasteful touch. The tickets were already enough but we really loved our time at that party.

Food was exquisite and desserts were really outstanding which made me a little sad because now I have to travel to Prague to have my favorite strawberry cookies. Any chance the chefs could relocate to Spain?

After the games, attending the official dinner with the tennis players was one of the most exciting moments we lived! We were extremely happy to share the experience with you! 

Yes, another NH detail that speaks volumes. Just being there was a prize in itself. The mood was wonderful and it made me really happy to know I was hobnobbing with people I thought I never would.

The matches were so intense and even that the post-events were a little delayed and in a rush but since it was for the sake of tennis it doesn’t blur the whole outstanding experience.

Prague is a very beautiful city. Did you like it?

Well, I had already been there and I do agree, it’s wonderful. It’s one of those places you don’t mind coming more than once because you are able to  see beautiful picturesque places again and discover things you missed on your last visit.

We have just opened the brand new NH Prague. As part of the prize was staying there, what do you, as one of the first guests, think about this hotel?

NH Prague it’s a magnificent hotel. Its location and the views over Prague’s Old Town, is just amazing. To add even more enchantment, reaching the hotel by a cable car  is a very appealing and special experience.

How would you describe your experience?

Wonderful!!! I can’t find the right words to show my feeling.

I know I’m supposed to say this but I really mean it. Since minute zero, everything from NH has been attention and care, we felt like honored guests.

I would like to take this opportunity to thank Ana, Raquel, Ida, Peter and many other staff from NH that made it possible. My most kind gratitude and regards for your special dedication to your work.
