Congratulations! Your hotel has made the first-ever list of Best Values, from Budget Travel Magazine and TripAdvisor.
The awards were created to spotlight the hotels that give travelers what they really want: A reliably satisfying experience at a reasonable price.
The winners were determined by a combination of the highest traveler ratings and the TripAdvisor Popularity Index, a measurement of overall traveler satisfaction. TripAdvisor, as you certainly know, is the world's leading source for hotel reviews. Budget Travel, founded by travel icon Arthur Frommer, now has 600,000 devoted subscribers.
The Best Values are the cover story of Budget Travel's February issue, a copy of which is already on its way. Your status as a Best Values winner will also be noted on your TripAdvisor review page. In the meantime, you can view a list of the winners at BudgetTravel.com/bestvalues.
