Four Seasons continues to dominate surveys completed by sophisticated travelers and the latest proof is in the results of the two most recent, prestigious surveys.
Four Seasons Hotel Seattle claimed the number one position in Institutional Investor’s 22nd Annual World’s Best Hotels Survey, rising to the top from 12th place last year. Eleven additional Four Seasons properties were also listed in the ranking - more than any other luxury hotel company.
Fifteen Four Seasons properties were also cited in the Andrew Harper’s Hideaway Report, 21st Annual Survey of Sophisticated Travelers, including Four Seasons Hotel George V Paris, which won first place in the Top 20 International City Hotels category. Four Seasons Hotel San Francisco and Four Seasons Hotel Prague both received special mention as “Rising Stars,” having been open for less than two years and ranking 19th and 29th respectively in their categories.
“Our readers have always recognized the consistency and quality of the Four Seasons experience,” said Andrew Harper. “Four Seasons always resonates with our sophisticated readers and its properties once again dominate our listings of the world’s best hotels.”
The results of the Institutional Investor survey were compiled from the votes of more than 100 senior financial executives from 31 countries who averaged 61 nights a year at hotels last year. Similarly, Andrew Harper’s survey is based on feedback from senior business people who have traveled outside the U.S. for business and leisure in the past 12 months.
“Each year, Four Seasons properties are singled out by readers of these esteemed publications,” said Wolf Hengst, president, worldwide hotel operations, Four Seasons Hotels and Resorts. “It’s rewarding that sophisticated travelers recognize our efforts to provide unparalleled service at our hotels and resorts.”
In addition to these accolades, Travel and Leisure magazine also recognized 14 Four Seasons hotels in its feature on the World’s Best Business Hotels.
