The awards, launched last year by Boutique Hotel News in partnership with leading guest feedback and online reputation management specialist GuestRevu and renowned hospitality management institution Glion Institute of Higher Education, are designed to reward the boutique, lifestyle and hybrid hotels who provide the very best in guest experiences.
The BoHos reward the boutique, lifestyle and hybrid hotels who provide the very best in guest experiences. They are unique in that the winners were decided, not by judges, but by the hotels' guests, using a combination of aggregated verified guest feedback from review sites and booking engines worldwide, and direct guest feedback via questionnaires. Each have a 50 per cent weighting in a hotel's overall score to give a true picture of the guest experience provided.
