Family Vacation Critic has released its second annual Favorite Hotel Awards just in time for summer.
The list of more than 500 family-approved hotels spans 15 regions across the world, including 10 within the U.S. In addition to having received stellar reviews from families, the award-winning properties have been experienced firsthand by Family Vacation Critic's team of experts.
In fact, that's part of the criteria.
In order to earn the designation of a Family Vacation Critic Favorite, the hotel must have been visited by a Family Vacation Critic hotel expert, receive a four- or five-star editorial and review rating and be recommended by at least 75 percent of families who reviewed it.
"These winners represent hotels that truly excel as family-friendly properties," said Family Vacation Critic editor-in-chief Lissa Poirot in a statement. "Because awards are only given to hotels that receive a high rating from both our team of experts and family travelers who have stayed at the property, the Family Vacation Critic Favorite Hotels designation offers parents a credible stamp of approval to use when searching for the perfect hotel for their family."
Together, the 2015 winners account for the top 12 percent of the site's hotels.
