Now in its 21st edition, Tripadvisor announced the winners of its 2023 Travelers’ Choice® Best of the Best Hotel Awards to align with the start of the summer travel season.  The awards provide  inspiration by revealing the best places to stay around the world through an analysis of the quantity and quality of hotel reviews from real travelers over a 12-month period (January 1 and December 31, 2022) covering more than 1.5 million hotels  worldwide. With a high volume of above-and-beyond reviews and opinions from the Tripadvisor community, each winner has passed the rigorous trust and safety standards, and fewer than 1% of Tripadvisor’s 8 million listings are awarded Best of the Best, signifying the highest level of excellence in hospitality.
