Preferred Hotels & Resorts Celebrates More than 105 Members Honored in Condé Nast Traveler’s 2019 Readers’ Choice Awards

October 7, 2019

NEWPORT BEACH, CALIFORNIA – October 7, 2019: Preferred Hotels & Resorts, the world’s largest independent hotel brand representing more than 750 hotels, resorts, and residences across 85 countries, is pleased to celebrate more than 105 member hotels within its global portfolio that have been recognized by Condé Nast Traveler’s 2019 Readers’ Choice Awards.  

Carefully selected by the publication’s global readership of discerning travelers – with barely 15 percent of the nearly 10,000 hotels, resorts, and destination spas rated included within the final list – the awards honor the most elite and sought-after travel experiences in the world. This year, seven of Preferred’s member hotels were recognized on the esteemed “Best Hotels / Resorts in the World” lists, and more than 30 member properties were recognized within the “top 5” rankings in their respective categories, five of which earned the #1 distinction and 10 of which earned the #2 distinction. Hotels represented at the top of their class include Amerikalinjen (#12 Best Hotel in the World; #1 Hotel in Europe/Northern), Aranwa Cusco Boutique Hotel (#13 Best Hotel in the World; #1 Hotel in South America), Finca Cortesín Hotel, Golf & Spa (#1 Hotel in Europe/Spain & Portugal), The Sebastian – Vail (#1 Hotel in Colorado, USA), Hotel Casa del Mar (#21 Best Hotel in the World);  The Watergate Hotel (#41 Best Hotel in the World; #1 Hotel in Washington, DC, USA).  

“With a record 600,000 travel enthusiasts submitting votes, it’s incredibly inspiring to stand alongside these esteemed hoteliers as they are recognized by the readers of Condé Nast Traveler for their excellence in providing insightful and tailored experiences for guests,” said CEO Lindsey Ueberroth. “These award wins are due largely to the passionate team members behind each hotel who work tirelessly to provide guests with genuine and memorable hospitality every day.” 

Following on the heels of Travel + Leisure’s 2019 World’s Best Awards in which Preferred Hotels & Resorts represented the #1 and #2 hotels in the “Top 100 Hotels in the World” category, the brand’s continued presence in these prestigious annual travel awards further showcases the strong value the travel community places on intuitive and personalized service, which independent hotels and resorts innately provide.
