Virtuoso continued honoring top figures in the luxury travel industry with a ceremony at Virtuoso Travel Week honoring the winners of its annual “Best of the Best" awards. The 11th annual ceremony celebrated this year’s top 11 hotels and hoteliers before 1,600 of luxury travel’s top partners attending the Hotels & Resorts Dinner. Virtuoso received input from its 800-plus travel agency partners and more than 16,000 professional travel advisors to name the winners in each category. Editors of VIRTUOSO LIFE, the network’s magazine, offered their expert insight and hotel savvy to select the nominees, which the advisors voted for. This year’s Best of the Best award recipients will be highlighted in the publication’s September/October issue. “With this being the 25th anniversary of Virtuoso Hotels & Resorts, we wanted to ensure that this year’s winners were emblematic of the commitment to delivering the world’s best hotel experiences that has served as the hallmark of this program all these years,” said Albert Herrera, senior vice president of global product partnerships for Virtuoso.
