Travelers looking to stay in the world’s best hotels have two options right here in New England, according to Travel + Leisure readers.
Travel + Leisure released the results of its annual World’s Best Awards on Wednesday, and The Row Hotel at Assembly Row in Somerville as well as Rabbit Hill Inn in Lower Waterford, Vermont, both made the magazine’s list of top 100 hotels in the world.
The Row Hotel at Assembly Row, one of Marriott International’s Autograph Collection properties, ranked No. 44 on the magazine’s world list and No. 3 on the magazine’s list of 15 best city hotels in the continental U.S. The 158-room boutique hotel is steps from the many shops and restaurants at bustling Assembly Row.
The Rabbit Hill Inn ranked No. 27 on the magazine’s world list, No. 3 on the magazine’s list of top 15 continental U.S. resort hotels, and No. 1 on the list of top 10 resort hotels in the Northeast. The Rabbit Hill Inn is a 19-room bed-and-breakfast in northern Vermont where guests can enjoy rooms with fireplaces, candlelit breakfasts, and views of the White Mountains.
The No. 1 hotel in the world is The Leela Palace Udaipur in India.
The 2019 World’s Best travel survey was available online from Nov. 5, 2018 to March 4, 2019. The hotels were scored for their rooms and facilities, location, service, food, and overall value. A numerical score was determined based on those ratings, and T+L tabulated the results with research firm M&RR.
Readers also rated airlines, airports, car rental agencies, cruise ships, destination spas, islands, hotel brands, cities, tour operators, and safari outfitters. The results will appear in the August issue of Travel + Leisure.
