Condé Nast Traveler

The Leading Hotels of the World, a collection of uncommon luxury hotels, announced today that Condé Nast Traveler's Reader's Choice Awards named more than 140 member hotels the top hotels and resorts in the world—the most out of any hotel and resort brand. Nearly 130,000 readers selected members in more than 35 countries including the United States, Italy, Germany and French Polynesia.

"We are very proud to have so many Leading Hotels selected again this year by the readers of Condé Nast Traveler,” said Ted Teng, president and chief executive officer of The Leading Hotels of the World. “As travelers look for authentic and enriching experiences, it comes as no surprise that more and more are choosing our member hotels.  Offering an uncommon perspective on their destinations is intrinsically part of their DNA."
