Your Favorite Hotels Revealed

Honoring 40 independent hotels and resorts from four global regions, the I Prefer Members’ Choice Awards 2022 were voted on by I Prefer Members who have personally stayed at each hotel or resort and loved each property’s unique experiences and outstanding service.

Selected from 650 destinations in more than 85 countries, this year’s winners are located across the globe in destinations as far-flung as Indian Ocean atolls in The Maldives and as familiar as Paris and Tokyo.
