Condé Nast Traveler

The Leading Hotels of the World, Ltd, a curated collection of uncommon luxury hotels, in more than 75 countries, announced today that Condé Nast Traveler's Reader's Choice Awards named more than 100 member hotels the top hotels and resorts in the world—the most out of any hotel and resort brand. Over 300,000 readers – nearly twice as many as last year – selected members from 37 countries, including the United States, Ireland, France and Italy.

“We are truly honored to have so many of our members recognized by the readers of Condé Nast Traveler this year” said Ted Teng, president and chief executive officer of The Leading Hotels of the World. The hotels selected, along with our entire collection, are predominantly family-owned and have all perfected the art of the welcome. Though all distinct, our curated collection of independently-operated hotels, continues to provide guests with the authentic and unexpected travel experiences that make lasting impressions on curious travelers.”
