The results are in! Conde Nast Traveler just released the results to their 10th Annual Business Travel Awards. And you’ll be surprised who and who did not make the list.
The readers poll was conducted by business travelers ‘who know a thing or two about business travel’. 51.3 percent of the surveyors were men and 48.7 percent were women. The poll was broken into different categories: best hotel chain (domestic and international), best airports (domestic and international), best transpacific and transatlantic routes, and best U.S. routes, both in business/first class and single class service.
Over the next four days, I’ll be highlighting the mentioned businesses in each category. Today, I’m starting with the best domestic and international hotel chains. Please feel free to post comments about the selections as well as share your own personal experiences with the businesses selected, either positive or negative.
According to the magazine, 18 percent of the surveyors are on the road for at least three months a year, so needless to say, they are qualified on the best and worst hotel chains. The criterion was simple: rooms equipped for working, business services/facilities, dining/restaurants, front desk services, and overall design.
Scoring 93.3% out of 100, Peninsula was rated the best
Coming in second was the Rosewood, scoring 88.6% and taking the number one spot for overall design.
Rounding out the top ten were:
Four Seasons 87.5%
Mandarin Oriental 86.6%
Luxury Collection 86.0%
Park Hyatt 76.6 %
Conrad International 75.7%
