New York, NY (PRWEB) February 06, 2014
The 2014 Best Hotels recognize hotels that were ranked based on an unbiased methodology that includes the collective opinion of travel experts and guests, expressed through online reviews and ratings.
To create this year's rankings, U.S. News factored in the prominence of industry awards a hotel receives along with its reputation among travel experts and guests. In total, 1,693 U.S. hotels, 271 Caribbean hotels, 342 Mexican hotels and 223 Canadian hotels were evaluated for the 2014 rankings.
Hotels named "Best" in their destination are typically the properties that have ranked the top 30 percent of U.S. News-evaluated properties in that region. A smaller, more selective group of hotels that are ranked in the top 10 percent of all ranked luxury hotels in the United States, the Caribbean, Mexico or Canada received a "Best Hotels in the USA," "Best Hotels in the Caribbean," "Best Hotels in Mexico" or "Best Hotels in Canada" award, depending on their location.
“We are proud to be recognized by such a highly respected publication, renowned for its exemplary rating system,” said Randy Taormina, General Manager, Refinery Hotel. “Our staff strives to create a truly tailored experience for every guest by anticipating their needs, and we could not be happier that their efforts have been recognized.”
"The 2014 Best Hotels were selected because they meet the highest standards of travel experts and guests alike," said Miriam Weiner, travel editor for U.S. News. "These properties are renowned in the travel industry for their luxury amenities and quality customer service."
