Tripadvisor just announced the 10 best hotels in the United States — Best Life
Choosing a hotel can be tricky. Of course, you can rely on reviews from professional writers or information provided on a hotel’s website. But the most reliable source of information comes from actual travelers who have experienced the property. That’s the beauty of Tripadvisor, a travel website focused on user reviews, photos, and recommendations. Every year, Tripadvisor compiles a list of the best hotels, chosen by people, not travel experts.
Travelers’ Choice Best of the Best Award takes into consideration the quality and quantity of traveler reviews and ratings and divides them into a variety of sub-categories. Of the millions of properties worldwide, less than 1% make the annual list and only ten hotels have been named to the top 10 in the United States in 2022.
