"It's clear that our community ventured far and wide last year: Our 10 winning subcategories encompass 37 regions around the world and include a wide range of amazing places to stay," said Sarah Firshein, Head of Editorial at Tripadvisor. "An opulent palace in Jaipur topped the charts, while hotels ranging from a 'glamping' retreat in Patagonia to a rock 'n' roll–themed boutique in Boston made their mark as well. As our savvy reviewers know, hotels can sometimes be the entire reason for the trip—I'm personally very excited to consult this list as I plot out the next year of vacations with my own family."

And the Winners are…
This year's No. 1 Hotel in the prestigious Top Hotels category is Rambagh Palace in Jaipur, India.

In the U.S., The Perry Lane Hotel in Savannah, Georgia, ranks No. 1 for travelers this year. The luxurious, cosmopolitan hotel provides a rare duality in contemporary design and draws inspiration from the historic city it calls home. Ranking No. 22 in 2022, The Perry Lane rose to the top this year based on glowing traveler reviews highlighting its chic rooftop bar, food and beverage offerings, and warm Southern hospitality, to name a few.

A second new subcategory for 2023 also spotlights relaxation: the Best Hotels with Spas. While many hotels aim to induce zen, none succeed quite like The Ritz-Carlton, Hong Kong, the No. 1 rated Spa Hotel. This is the "highest" hotel in the world, so the views alone are worth visiting the spa on the 116th floor, which redefines the urban spa experience in the city and across Asia. The full top 10 is as follows:
As the hospitality industry continues to rebound, many new hotels have opened their doors, the best of which are recognized in Tripadvisor's Hottest New Hotels for 2023. OBLU SELECT Lobigili in the Maldives secures Tripadvisor's "rookie of the year" status, ranking No. 1 in the world. This 5-star resort exclusively for adults features nature-inspired designs that bring to life a secluded, castaway feel, once again proving wellness is paramount for travelers. In the U.S., San Francisco's design- and art-driven LUMA Hotel takes the crown.
