Finding the right hotel can make or break a business trip or leisure vacation, but to help take the hassle out of the process, Jetsetter.com has announced the winners of the 2015 Best of the Best hotel awards.
According to Jetsetter.com, this year’s awards included 23 categories, the company recognized the best in each category and the two runner-ups. The editorial team collected feedback from over 200 travel correspondents and a committee narrowed the selections down to the final award winners.
Jetsetter.com managing editor Colleen Clark released a statement about the award-winning hotels, saying, “We spend every day at Jetsetter curating the best hotels around the world. The winning hotels on this list go above and beyond to deliver the best experiences in their categories. They're the kind of places that belong on the bucket lists of every discerning traveler.”
As for the list itself, there were some surprises and other obvious winners. One of the biggest winners from the awards was 25hours Hotel Bikini in Berlin, Germany, being named the hotel with the best nightlife. Judging from the hotel’s website, the bars and rooftop terrace overlooking the city would be a perfect location for a party.
Another big winner was The Line Hotel in Los Angeles, California that won the award for Best for Foodies. Set in Koreatown, the Korean inspired POT restaurant and the Taiwanese, Salvadorian and Mexican infusion at the cafe make this is a foodie’s dream come true.
For those looking to travel for love, the hotel that earned the Best for Romance award is the One&Only Palmilla in Los Cabos, Mexico. The hotel has gone through some major changes in recent years, and it is better than ever with adult outdoor lounging areas and an atmosphere conducive for being in love.
