Travel + Leisure Readers' 100 Favorite Hotels in the World for 2023

Travel + Leisure


Thirty countries and five continents are represented in our readers’ 100 favorite hotels as voted in our annual “World’s Best Awards” survey for 2023.

Travel + Leisure readers have wide-ranging personalities, interests, and preferences — and all of that is reflected in their favorite hotels around the world. In their picks for this year’s list, you’ll read about hotels in some of the world’s greatest urban centers: Paris, Rio, Mumbai, New York City. You’ll also discover Lake Como haunts, Caribbean beach hideaways, and luxurious safari lodges staffed by local wildlife experts. You’ll find a resort with just nine rooms — and another with more than 900.


How Voting Works


Every year for our World’s Best Awards survey, T+L asks readers to weigh in on travel experiences around the globe — to share their opinions on the top hotels, resorts, cities, islands, cruise ships, spas, airlines, and more. Nearly 165,000 T+L readers completed the 2023 survey, an increase of nearly 25 percent over pre-pandemic voting levels. A total of more than 685,000 votes were cast across over 8,500 unique properties (hotels, cities, cruise lines, etc.).

Hotels were classified as either resort hotel, city hotel, or safari lodge based on their location and amenities, and they were specifically rated on the criteria below:

  • Rooms/facilities
  • Location
  • Service
  • Food
  • Value

For each characteristic, respondents could choose a rating of excellent, above average, average, below average, or poor. The final scores are averages of these responses.


#4 (Tie): Goldener Hirsch, Auberge Resorts Collection, Park City, Utah


“My new favorite hotel in Deer Valley,” wrote a T+L reader of this recently renovated 68-key resort. Conveniently located to Silver Lake Express and Sterling Express lifts, among others, it also has plenty to offer outside of ski season — from hiking to Park City cultural events to elegant Austrian-influenced cuisine from chef Nicolas Lebas.

Reader Score: 98.67
