Oakland, CA (PRWEB) February 18, 2014
Lonely Planet has announced its picks for the Worlds Best Hotels for 2014. Unlike other lists, Lonely Planets Worlds Best Hotels arent necessarily the most popular hotels with travelers. Instead, its a carefully curated list of 30 extraordinary and unique places to stay around the globe, some of which may be well-known, while others are delightfully under-the-radar.
To create Worlds Best Hotels, the beloved travel media company called upon its network of expert travel writers to submit their choices for the best-of-the-best in three categories: Most Extraordinary Places to Stay, Best-Value Accommodations and Top Eco Retreats. From there, an in-house panel selected the top 10 for each.
Extraordinary: Lonely Planets authors are always on the lookout for experiences which will create exceptional memories for travelers, and accommodation is no exception. Included in the cut of the 10 most extraordinary places to stay are Saugerties Lighthouse in New York State and the Gibbon Experience Treehouse in Laos.
Best-Value: Having visited thousands of hotels and guesthouses, Lonely Planets authors know good value and understand how important it is for travelers to stretch their dollar throughout their trip. Old Plovdiv Guesthouse in Bulgaria and Oztel in Rio de Janeiro are just two places that offer the most bang for the buck.
**Lonely Planet will also host a Twitter chat featuring budget travel expert and blogger Kash, from Budgettraveller.org. The chat will discuss money-saving travel tips, exceptional value accommodation and favorite budget destinations. Follow the hastag #LPchat on Thursday, February 27th at 12-1 p.m. EST/9-10 a.m. PST to participate**
Eco: Traveling responsibly has always been at the core of Lonely Planets values and mission. With this in mind, our authors strive to find places that are committed sustainable practices. Our picks for eco stays have made impressive strides to minimize their environmental impact and contribute to local communities, like Chole Mjini in Tanzania and Machu Picchu Pueblo Hotel in Peru.
