The 2015 Orbitz Best In Stay Awards honor nearly 400 top-rated hotels in 125 popular destinations based on reviews by Orbitz Worldwide consumer brands (Orbitz.com, ebookers, and HotelClub) customers. There are up to three Best In Stay winners in each destination, and hotels with the highest customer rating are given special distinction as a Best In Stay Elite hotel. In addition to the destination winners, Best in Stay and Best in Stay Elite winners are also selected in six categories: Value, Luxury, Family, LGBT, Ski and All-Inclusive.
Mark Rose, General Manager, said “Receiving an award of this calibre, voted on by Orbitz guests worldwide, is a source of great pride for the hotel and is a reflection of the level of effort made every day by each member of our staff to deliver a consistently high level of service to every guest.”
Orbitz Worldwide Best In Stay Award winners are selected based on the overall numeric score of verified hotel reviews submitted by Orbitz Worldwide customers that have booked and stayed at hotels over the past year. Customers are asked to rate a variety of hotel attributes on a scale of 1 to 5, including amenities, maintenance, hotel staff, room comfort, location, and value. Those ratings are supplemented by input from Orbitz Worldwide hotel experts who factor in other market conditions, such as the number of reviews, frequency of booking and reputation of hotel staff.
“Each day, our customers utilize the nearly two million reviews across our sites to get real-time advice from other customers on where to stay when planning vacations,” said Peggy Bianco, group vice president of global hotel services for Orbitz Worldwide. “We are happy to once again honor the best-in-class hotels around the world that display outstanding amenities and service based on the review scores by Orbitz Worldwide customers.”
