Orbitz Customers Name Favorite Hotels for 2013
Travelers Get $50 Off Vacation Packages to All "Best In Stay" Award-Winning Hotels
CHICAGO, IL, November 14, 2013 - Orbitz today announced the winners of the 2013 Best In Stay Awards, which recognize top-rated hotels in 75 markets based on reviews by Orbitz customers.
Orbitz Best In Stay Award winners are selected based on the overall numeric score of nearly 300,000 verified hotel reviews submitted by Orbitz customers that have booked and stayed at hotels over the past year. Customers are asked to rate a variety of hotel attributes on a scale of 1 to 5, including amenities, maintenance, hotel staff, room comfort, location, and value. Those ratings are supplemented by input from nearly 150 Orbitz hotel experts who factor in other market conditions, such as the number of reviews, frequency of booking and reputation of hotel staff.
"Finding the right hotel is an important part of the travel experience- whether it be its convenience to attractions or clients, amenities like a spa, pool or beach access, comforts like the room décor and dining, or of course the overall value of what you get for the price," said Peggy Bianco, group vice president of global hotel services for Orbitz. "Orbitz combines a great online and mobile shopping experience with the insight of over 1.4 million verified hotel reviews to assist travelers in making smart hotel choices that will add to up to a memorable travel experience. And now with our Orbitz Rewards program, our customers can book and earn rewards for discounts on great hotels in every market that we serve."
From now until November 27, travelers will receive $50 off a vacation package that includes a flight and hotel stay of three or more nights at any of these top-of-the-line havens using promotion code BESTINSTAY50.1 Visit www.orbitz.com/bestinstay for a complete list of Orbitz Best In Stay winners.
