Travel+Leisure USA - Sofitel ‘World's Best’ List
In results released worldwide this week the popular Queenstown hotel was ranked number six in the ‘ Top City Hotels’ category, and for the first time was also ranked as one Travel+Leisure’s 500 best hotels in the world, the only New Zealand hotel to enjoy this accolade in 2012.
Every year, Travel+Leisure readers vote on their favorite hotels, resorts, spas, airlines, cruise lines, tour operators, rental-car agencies, and more from around the world as part of the magazine’s annual World’s Best Awards survey.
Sofitel Queenstown Hotel & Spa General Manager Vincent Macquet says, “It is wonderful that the hotel has again been acknowledged by world travellers and Travel+Leisure magazine again as part of this World’s Best annual survey. This honor is a testament to how well our hotel serves readers and luxury travelers as they explore the world.”
This year’s accolade follows on from the hotel being named World’s Best Hotel Spa as part of Travel+Leisure 2011 World’s Best Awards, an award that saw the boutique New Zealand hotel beat out not only its competitors in New Zealand, Australia and the Pacific but all other regions too including Asia, Europe, Mexico, the Caribbean, South America, Hawaii, the USA and Canada.
This year’s World’s Best Awards list will be published in the August 2012 issue of the magazine, and is also available on travelandleisure.com, and in T+L’s digital editions.
Travel+Leisure is one of North America’s most respected and highest circulating travel magazines with a focus on authentic, innovative, and irresistible experiences across the globe. Survey results are based on readers' ratings, with hotel spas specifically judged on the basis of their ambience, treatments, service and value.
