NEWPORT BEACH, CALIFORNIA – December 21, 2023 – Today, Preferred Travel Group – the family-owned company that operates hotel brands Preferred Hotels & Resorts, Beyond Green, Historic Hotels of America, and Historic Hotels Worldwide – announced the winners of the sixth annual I Prefer Members’ Choice Awards. This year, 40 hotels from four global regions were selected as winners across the regional categories, with Woodstock Inn & Resort, NJV Athens Plaza, The Fullerton Hotel Singapore, and Half Moon named as winners of their respective categories and Woodstock Inn & Resort named the overall global winner. In appreciation of the awards participants, I Prefer has launched a limited-time offer where members can earn 10,000 bonus points per valid booking made at any of the winning properties, earning up to 40,000 bonus points in total. 

“These awards provide us with the opportunity to gain insight into the experiences of I Prefer members who have journeyed around the world, reflecting on the authentic moments only made possible by the dedication and commitment to excellence from our member properties,” said Lindsey Ueberroth, CEO of Preferred Travel Group. “I am so pleased to stand alongside and celebrate the continued success of our hotels and appreciate the extraordinary travel experiences they create.” 

The I Prefer Members’ Choice Awards winners are decided by members of the I Prefer Hotel Rewards program, the world’s biggest loyalty program for independent and unique hotel experiences. This year, voter participation nearly doubled, indicating growth in both the program as well as member engagement. Ballots were cast throughout the month of October in recognition of the inimitable experiences I Prefer members enjoyed at any of the 600 participating properties.
