The awards recognize the most outstanding Peru hotels identified in categories of Top Boutique, Luxury, Sustainable, Historical, Family, Destination Retreat, Romantic, and Cruise.
In addition to the awards, Peru For Less has also published a 54-page e-book that details each hotel’s special features and amenities, stunning photographs and insider tips for travelers.
The Peru’s Top Hotel Awards 2015 e-book is available for free download on the Peru For Less website.
The selection process of this year’s award recipients began with a survey of Peru For Less travelers’ favorite hotels. A panel of judges were responsible for hand-picking the final 12 hotels. The three judges, Diego Maguiña, destinations manager; Brynna Burguard, quality control manager; and Matt Greenberg, sales manager, took several criteria into account, including price, customer satisfaction, unique amenities, staff, and comfort.
“The best hotel is not always the one that’s the most expensive,” says Mr. Greenberg.
“A hotel has to feel a certain way, sort of like home, but not at all like that either,” he adds. “When selecting hotels, it’s about forgetting who we are as a company and walking into each room and having an honest reaction of a traveler; this is what matters, traveler to traveler.”
Richard Leon, general manager at Peru For Less, says the right hotel is a big part of the travel experience.
“Travel is all about experiencing the local food, the noises, the smells, and new views,” says Mr. Leon. “Peru has some of the most unique properties in the world, ranging from jungle lodges in the Amazon — heart of one of the most diverse ecosystems — to small boutique gems, and properties located on historical sites.”
“Since hotels are such a big part of your travel experience,” he says, “we really do our homework to thoroughly investigate and pick the best ones for you to enjoy, and we feel this award and e-book is the perfect way to share some of our favorite Peru hotels.”
