The 100 Best Hotels in the World

With international travel’s steady revival, Travel + Leisure readers have finally been able to revisit (and celebrate) their favorite hotels around the world — and check off many that have long been on their must-stay lists. This year’s top 100 winners reflect the resurgence of global jet-setting, especially as European countries reopened their borders to American travelers. But as always, it’s not just geography that determines which properties ranked highest. Through their votes and comments, our readers championed hotels that delivered great service and thoughtful amenities, ones that make the journey not only easier but also more memorable.


Every year for our World’s Best Awards survey, T+L asks readers to weigh in on travel experiences around the globe — to share their opinions on the top hotels, resorts, cities, islands, cruise ships, spas, airlines, and more. Hotels (including safari lodges) were rated on their facilities, location, service, food, and overall value. Properties were classified as city or resort based on their locations and amenities.


Excitement around a return to Europe is reflected in how high hotels in some of the Continent’s great cities placed on this year’s list. It’s noteworthy that two newcomers placed among those properties: Hôtel Madame Rêve, in Paris, at No. 9 and Rosewood Villa Magna, in Madrid, at No. 10. More impressive still is that for the first time in more than a decade, our readers selected a European hotel as their No. 1 in the world: Rosewood Castiglion del Bosco, in Italy’s iconic Tuscan countryside, is 2022’s best hotel.


That’s not the only big shift in this year’s top 100 rankings. Last year, India was the clear “country winner,” with 12 hotels placing in the top 100. While India still fared well this year, with 11 properties (the same number as Italy), the country best represented in 2022 was the United States, with 19 properties. Our readers loved a variety of hotels from sea to shining sea. The charming Pickering House Inn, in New Hampshire, landed highest at No. 4, followed by the iconic Lowell in New York City at No. 8.

Supplying Comments When Checking Out Of Hotels…

I just experienced what I’d explain as disastrous services at an or else amazing resort. To be crystal clear, it is not that any 1 specific terrible detail took place, but company was just regularly inadequate from commence to finish, and this is a hotel exactly where you ought to be expecting specifically the opposite.

I’ll have a entire overview quickly, but wished to discuss a bit about the basic way that motels solicit responses, converse about how I share comments with inns, and listen to what OMAAT readers think.

How inns solicit comments at test-out

Inns are all about obtaining comments today, supplied that they are quite concerned with the evaluations that people leave on line, which can make or crack their business enterprise.

When checking out of a lodge, I discover that associates just take one of a few methods to soliciting feed-back:

  • Some motels really do not ask for feed-back, or how every thing was with a continue to be
  • Some hotels check with how almost everything was with a stay
  • Some resorts talk to what could have been carried out far better

If you continue to be at a hotel that falls into the third category, you know you are in for a address. It’s a bold problem to check with what could be performed to increase, mainly because it changes the feed-back dynamic. Relatively than just hoping folks say a keep was “fine” or “good,” you truly want to know what persons truly believe, and what could be improved. The very last lodge I stayed at the place I was requested for this type of comments was the Waldorf Astoria Dubai DIFC, which also had the ideal support of any resort I have stayed at in Dubai.

The next classification is the trickiest, in my view. It is of program superior to ask for responses on how a stay was, but the associate needs to be all set to answer if the remedy is something other than “great.” You shouldn’t be requested how something was, have comments or share what went wrong with the remain,

NYC couple’s dream wedding ceremony ‘destroyed’ by hotel’s noise restriction, $5M fit promises

Let the wedding bells ring — extremely quietly.

The daughter of a wealthy Significant Apple genuine estate family’s dream nuptials grew to become a nightmare when a Brooklyn hotel unsuccessful to disclose a “severe” sounds restriction that forced company to move to a cramped, “dingy” room off-web site for tunes and dancing, according to a new lawsuit.

The wedding was moved from a spacious reception place to a bare-bones “afterparty” space.

But the newlyweds discovered just after the reception started that a rule restricted audio to a “woefully low” decibel amount that attendees could hardly hear, in accordance to the go well with submitted very last Monday in Brooklyn Supreme Courtroom.

The audio-shushing disaster spoiled the couple’s initial dance and — after a DJ refused to change up the tunes — relegated company to a smaller, dark home on the second ground of a creating subsequent doorway, according to the Newmans, who are suing the hotel and their wedding planner, “The Genuine Housewives of Miami” star Guerdy Abraira.

From bees to bins: how a London hotel aims to become truly net-zero | Hotels

We’ve all seen that sign in hotels where we are encouraged to reuse our towels for the sake of the planet. Often it’s just lip service. But what if that idea is taken a level upwards – to make your whole hotel sustainable?

That’s the premise at room2 in Chiswick, west London, said to be the world’s first net zero “hometel”. It’s forecast to be 89% more energy efficient than a typical UK hotel and has a host of sustainable measures, from solar panels to recycled furniture, zero food waste and a wildflower roof.

It’s the brainchild of owner Robert Godwin, who is passionate about driving a cultural shift in an industry where sustainability is often an afterthought.

I didn’t think an overnight hotel stay could make me think about climate change, but here it does, and not in a preachy way. The staff are all on board and proud of their sustainable goals – and all the small details add up.

As we arrive, someone is picking up an order from Too Good To Go, an app that connects people to restaurants and shops that have a food surplus, and the lobby is packed with plants and upcycled furniture.

Another welcome innovation is flexibility: check-in is from 2pm, as is check-out, so you get a full 24 hours to make the most of your stay.

Each room has a kitchenette – hence the hometel moniker – so it’s great for those who want to keep costs down by self-catering. Coffee and delicious food are available in the Boca restaurant on the ground floor – more on that later.
