The Award of Excellence is an annual award recognizing the very best hotels available in Booking.com Inc.’s global marketplace, as judged by the experiences of customers. Based on more than 500,000 guest reviews submitted annually by travelers, only a very limited number of hotels were designated the 2014 worldwide award recipients.
These properties have been identified by Booking.com customers as consistently delivering superior services, an exceptional guest experience and notable value; earning a place on the this list is a testament to their ongoing commitment to excellence. An overall, ongoing and consistent review score of 8 or above is required.
“This recognition by guests and travel professionals is exceedingly rare and highly coveted. It was not one we searched out in any fashion except to put the comfort and desires of our guests first” said Craig Hulford, Area General Manager of the New Orleans Hotel Collection that manages the hotel for local owners. “We are especially pleased that Hotel Le Marais has won this award as one of only two hotels in the entire region to be recognized this way.”
Of the 650,000 hotels and resorts on Booking.com, less than 5% -only 650 hotels are designated as Award of Excellence recipients. Eligible hotels were ranked with a numerical score. These scores are completely independent of advertisers and partners. Only the top hotels with the highest scores were chosen for the Award.
