The news comes in the wake of record breaking tourism figures for the capital. The figures released by the Office for National Statistics (ONS) for July-September 2013 show that a record 4.9 million people visited the city. For the first nine months of 2013 London welcomed 12.8 million visitors, an increase of 12 per cent compared to 2012.
The Milestone Hotel in Kensington was named the UK’s top hotel and 15th best in the world. London scooped the awards in the categories for Top Hotels, Family, Luxury, Romance and Small Hotels.
Julie Chappell, Director of Consumer Marketing and Digital Channels at London & Partners says: “We are delighted that so many hotels in our capital are being recognised and revered by TripAdvisor travellers across the globe. Aside from our rich cultural heritage, world class museums and restaurants and unrivalled shopping experiences, London has an incredible range of accommodation options for all kinds of visitors and budgets.
“These awards are a true testament to the hard work carried out by London’s hotel industry and the recent announcement on record-breaking tourism figures means this is a well-timed triumph for the capital.”
James Kay, TripAdvisor spokesperson, comments: “For the twelfth year running, these awards recognise the finest hotels across the globe, according to those that really matter – the travellers themselves.
“It is great to see that London continues to lead the way when it comes to outstanding hotels in the UK.”
The Travellers’ Choice® Award winners were determined based on the reviews and opinions of millions of international TripAdvisor travellers.
