October, 2017

Condé Nast Traveler announced this week the results of its 30th annual Readers’ Choice Awards, recognising 44 hotels from the Small Luxury Hotels of the World (SLH) portfolio, 16 more hotels than were awarded in 2016.  

Filip Boyen, CEO, Small Luxury Hotels of the World says: “SLH has been immensely focused on the quality of our hotels to ensure higher, consistent standards for our guests.  To have 44 of our hotels recognized by Conde Nast Traveler readers is a magnificent accomplishment which continues to validate the position of our independently spirited hoteliers. We are thrilled to congratulate our hoteliers on their continued excellence.”

SLH matches independently minded guests with independently spirited hotels. The diverse portfolio of over 500 hotels in more than 80 countries around the world includes everything from cutting edge design hotels and city centre sanctuaries to historic country mansions and remote private islands.

Over 300,000 readers submitted millions of ratings and tens of thousands of comments, voting on a record-breaking 7,320 hotels and resorts, 610 cities, 225 islands, 468 cruise ships, 158 airlines, and 195 airports.

 

Five regionally diverse SLH member hotels were also included in the 50 best hotels in the world list, where service, style, good eats, and sublime views make for a memorable stay: Archipelagos Hotel in Mykonos (9), Como the Treasury in Perth (12), Canaves Oia Santorini (28), La Pavillon de la Reine in Paris (36) and Château La Cheneviere in Port-en-Bessin, France (48).

 

The Condé Nast Traveler Readers’ Choice Awards are the longest-running and most prestigious 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.

The Readers’ Choice Awards are announced in the November issue of Condé Nast Traveler, on newsstands nationwide on October 24, 2017. The full list is published exclusively online, at www.CNTraveler.com/rca.
