Thanks to reviews written by guests who have actually stayed in the properties, Hotels.com has introduced a new program to recognise hotels that have achieved excellent to outstanding guest review ratings from customers around the world. In the first phase of the program, Hotels.com has identified more than 6,400 boutique properties in 117 countries that have achieved an average guest review rating of 4.5 or higher* (out of 5). To determine the initial recipients, Hotels.com analysed its database of more than 15 million Genuine Guest Reviews, which are verified upon the completion of each guest’s stay. “Our accommodation partners are invaluable assets to Hotels.com and we’re committed to recognising their hard work and dedication to provide guests with the best possible experience,” said Jessica Chuang, Regional Marketing Director, Greater China, Hotels.com. “This program is also a testament to our customers who’ve contributed to the more than 15 million guest reviews that determined these top-performing properties.” Get the full story at Travel Daily News
