Sneak Preview: The Robb Report 100 Hotels

<< Back to Robb Report, November 2007

The abundance of rankings and ratings systems available to travelers can serve more to confuse than to inform. Stars, diamonds, numerals, and even crowns purport to denote comparative quality, but they frequently fall short of answering the most fundamental question: Which hotel is the best in its given location? On newsstands this November, the second annual edition of Robb Report Luxury Hotels addresses this issue head-on, offering a comprehensive guide to the premier accommodations in 100 cities worldwide. As chosen by the editors and writers of Robb Report, the properties showcased in Luxury Hotels—selections from which appear on the following pages—rank unequivocally as the ultimate urban retreats.
