UK: The Association of Serviced Apartment Providers (ASAP) has announced that four of its members have been shortlisted for industry awards this month.
Staying Cool at the Rotunda, Birmingham has reached the national
final of VisitEngland's Awards for Excellence 2014 for the second
consecutive year. It has reached the final five for the Self
