Expedia Reveals 2011 “Insiders’ Select” List Featuring the World’s Top Hotels for Quality and Value

BELLEVUE, WA, May 5, 2011 –®, the world’s leading online travel agency, today unveiled the Expedia 2011 Insiders’ Select® results. Insiders’ Select is a global program that identifies the top hotels based on “quality and value,” rather than pure luxury.

The ranking is determined primarily by Expedia customer reviews. Every year more than 500,000 reviews are submitted, verified and analyzed to compile the Insider’s Select list.

This year’s top 10 Insiders’ Select properties are:

1.       Cedarbrook Lodge – Seattle, Washington (USA) (top left photo)
2.       iQ Hotel Roma – Rome, Italy (middle right photo)
3.       Hotel Antiche Figure – Venice, Italy
4.       Hotel Berchielli – Florence, Italy
5.       Hotel Monterey Kyoto – Kyoto, Japan
6.       The Nines – Portland, Oregon (USA)

8.       K&K Hotel Central - Prague, Czech Republic
9.       Hotel Teatro – Denver, Colorado (USA)
10.   Sofitel New York - New York, NY (USA)

“When it comes to hotels, opulence is a fairly easy thing to measure. What’s more difficult to measure is value – those hotels that regularly deliver a quality experience night in and night out. Insider Select features the world’s top hotels for value,” said John Morrey, vice president, eCommerce at Expedia, Inc. 

“These determinations come from our customers. Every year, hundreds of thousands of travelers take the time to share their experiences with Expedia and with one another. The 2011 Insiders’ Select List reflects that collective wisdom.”
