The Leading Hotels of the World, Ltd., a curated collection of more than 375 uncommon luxury hotels, is pleased to announce that Condé Nast Traveler recognized more than 130 members in their 2017 Readers’ Choice Awards. Of the 100 hotels and resorts that topped “The 50 Best Hotels in the World” and “The 50 Best Resorts in the World” categories, Leading Hotels had the greatest number of properties recognized out of any hotel and resort brand.

La Réserve Paris Hotel and Spa was honored with the title of #1 hotel in the world, and Royal Mansour Marrakech, The Gainsborough Bath Spa, Fairmont Hotel Vier Jahreszeiten, Hotel d'Angleterre, Geneva, Residence & Spa at One&Only Royal Mirage Dubai, The Lodhi, The Reverie Saigon, Hotel Fasano São Paulo, L’Horizon Resort & Spa, Faena Hotel Miami Beach, Carillon Miami Wellness Resort and The Hay-Adams all took the coveted #1 ranking within their categories.

“The Readers’ Choice Awards are particularly meaningful to The Leading Hotels of the World because they celebrate our shared emphasis with Condé Nast Traveler on customer centricity,” said Ted Teng, president and chief executive officer of The Leading Hotels of the World. “Ultimately, what is important is the ability of the hotel to make an individual customer happy. Our members honored in the Readers’ Choice Awards do this exceptionally well by creating tailored experiences for their individual guests. We can talk about quality and standards, but in the end, this does not matter without a happy guest.”

The Condé Nast Traveler Readers’ Choice Awards are the longest-running and one of the most important recognition of excellence in the travel industry and are commonly known as “the best of the best of travel.” Under Editor in Chief Pilar Guzmán, the Readers’ Choice Awards have become more selective and specific to the passions that inspire today’s travelers.
