To create their twelfth annual list of the world’s best hotels, U.S. News & World Report asked their readers to rate 35,000 properties worldwide. To find the best hotels in any destination, they evaluated amenities, facilities, and overall value. The top-rated hotels were deemed “top” by readers based on their overall score, as well as their reputation for customer service. Each hotel was also categorized as a resort or city hotel, based on the amenities offered.
One of the best hotels in Times Square is the Hyatt Centric, which features a rooftop bar and nice rooms with floor-to-ceiling windows. It is also located in the heart of the Theater District and has a rooftop lounge with spectacular views of the city. It also boasts a prestigious spa, plush bathrobes, and every luxury accessory. The hotel is also walking distance to many of the city’s attractions.
The luxurious Belmond Hotel Caruso, located in Ravello, overlooks the Amalfi Coast and the Mediterranean Sea. The hotel’s lobby resembles a museum.
