Ranking in our popularity index throughout the year drives the selection of the annual award winners. We announce the award at the beginning of each year so travelers from around the world can use the selection when planning travel. Your hotel will have a special designation on our site as a Traveler's Choice winner and will be promoted in our outbound communications to customers and the press.

Keep in mind, this is not your average hotel awards listing. So, although, you might be surprised by which hotels are or are not here, if you choose one of these properties for your travels, you won't be surprised when you get there. You'll be delighted."
