SAN FRANCISCO, Calif. (PRWEB) February 15, 2006
TravelPost.com, the premier source for personalized hotel ratings and travel advisory services, today revealed its first “Top Rated Hotels,” a new regular feature that will uncover which hotels are the highest rated by TravelPost.com members. In addition, TravelPost.com will share why the winning hotels were highly rated. The first “Top Rated Hotels” will spotlight the highest rated hotels in Las Vegas among women under 30 traveling for leisure on an average budget, but the city and reviewer demographics will change with each future announcement.
And the February winners in Las Vegas are the Bellagio, Mandalay Bay and Paris hotels. When rated by females under 30 on a leisure trip with an average budget, each hotel received a cumulative rating of nine-and-a-half out of 10. The Bellagio won out for its outstanding service and “pampering,” while the Mandalay Bay edged other hotels for its vast array of entertainment options. The Paris hotel was given high marks for its comfortable and relaxing atmosphere.
A 27-year-old female from Stoneham, Mass. wrote of the Bellagio: “Everyone was sincere and happy to see us and more than willing to do anything necessary to make us happy.”
“There was a wealth of things to do,” wrote a 24-year-old woman from Attica, NY of the Mandalay Bay, where she stayed for four nights. “I never had a chance to get bored, and I never really had to leave the premises.”
Of the Paris hotel, a 26-year-old female from Gainesville, Florida wrote: “It was a great experience and I can't wait to go back! The room was terrific. The furniture was comfortable and the people were friendly.”
