Guests give boutique properties a boost on Hotels.com
Hotels.com has recognized more than 6,400 boutique properties in 117 countries worldwide 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.
?Hotels.com guest reviews are a helpful starting point to planning any vacation because they are written by guests who have actually stayed at the hotels, so travelers have an idea of what to expect,? said Hotels.com travel expert Taylor L. Cole. ?You can filter our reviews by trip type like ?Family, Business, Romance? and see the time of year the guest traveled, which gives a better indication of the guest?s experience.??
To receive an award, properties must have achieved an average customer review score of 4.5 or higher, based on a minimum of 50 reviews as of January 31, 2015.
