presents 2015 Stellar Stays logo #StellarStays

More than an award. A recognition you can trust.

The guests have spoken

We believe in making amazing tools to make people's life easier. With HotelsCombined, we help millions of travellers make the right accommodation decisions.
Now, we decided it was time to recognise those hotels that go above and beyond for their customers. With hotel guests posting reviews on a wide range of different travel and booking websites, blogs, forums and on social media, it was almost impossible to really understand the complete customer picture.
Not anymore.

We've crunched the data

Our world leading meta-search technology together with a proprietary algorithm helps our team combine, analyse and rank millions of points of customer feedback to form a complete and comprehensive understanding of over 800,000 hotels worldwide. This was a massive undertaking which took months of analysis by our team of data experts.
This is what makes the HotelsCombined 'Stellar Stays' awards unique, unlike any other travel award program.

World's best hotels

This award recognises the world’s best hotels that have achieved outstanding customer satisfaction.
The criteria was strict and included the quality and consistency of guest reviews, the absence of recurring or unresolved issues, and, of course, the overall score.
This year’s winners are placed within the top 3% of hotels worldwide and are representative of the absolute highest standards in the industry.
