About KAYAK's Best Hotels

KAYAK's hotel ratings process was introduced to provide hotel customers who use KAYAK with a platform to share their experience staying at different properties. A property must have a minimum Overall Rating of 8.0 and a minimum of 50 reviews published within the last year to qualify for consideration for KAYAK's Best Hotels. The current list of Best Hotels is based on ratings from travellers in 2018.
