Condé Nast Traveler announces 2018 Readers’ Choice Awards for best hotels


The 2018 results are all about comfort. Readers stayed closer to home than ever before, pushing more cities like Chicago, Charleston, and Nashville to the top of our lists.

They favored the Caribbean and domestic islands in the southeast, like Hilton Head, Amelia, and Kiawah.

The properties that impressed them most were smaller and less flashy than in years past, and our small-cruise-ship list is longer than it's ever been, suggesting that the right kind of less is more.

The 2018 Readers' Choice Awards are celebrated in Condé Nast Traveler's November issue on newsstands October 16 and on online at http://www.cntraveler.com/rca
