has announced the results of a year-long study of the most popular hotels on the web for 2002.
The first entirely web-based hotel ranking index, TripAdvisor`s “Best Hotels On The Web - 2002” award identifies the top hotel in each major city and continent worldwide based on the quantity and quality of information found out on the web by TripAdvisor`s specialized travel search engine.
Covering over 80 major cities worldwide and the top continents, TripAdvisor`s “Best Hotels On The Web” award was given to the most popular hotel in each city or region. Unlike other hotel awards that are based solely on editorial opinions or user surveys, TripAdvisor`s award takes into account the overall opinions of the vast information written about a hotel available on the web. The greater the amount of positive articles and reviews published on the web about a hotel, the higher the hotel`s ranking. In this regard, TripAdvisor`s “Best Hotels On The Web” award is the first Hotel award based solely on the democratic input of the entire web.
