Orbitz Best In Stay Award winners are selected based on the overall numeric score of nearly 300,000 verified hotel reviews submitted by Orbitz customers that have booked and stayed at hotels over the past year. Customers are asked to rate a variety of hotel attributes on a scale of 1 to 5, including amenities, maintenance, hotel staff, room comfort, location, and value. Those ratings are supplemented by input from nearly 150 Orbitz hotel experts who factor in other market conditions, such as the number of reviews, frequency of booking and reputation of hotel staff.
“Finding the right hotel is an important part of the travel experience- whether it be its convenience to attractions or clients, amenities like a spa, pool or beach access, comforts like the room decor and dining, or of course the overall value of what you get for the price,” said Peggy Bianco, group vice president of global hotel services for Orbitz. “Orbitz combines a great online and mobile shopping experience with the insight of over 1.4 million verified hotel reviews to assist travelers in making smart hotel choices that will add to up to a memorable travel experience. And now with our Orbitz Rewards program, our customers can book and earn rewards for discounts on great hotels in every market that we serve.”
