Traveling and Hotels

Traveling and hotels are both part of the travel industry, which is one of the largest service industries in the world and becoming increasingly important in the modern age. The travel industry is centered on the movement of people between different locations on a temporary basis in exchange for money or other goods and services.

The hotels industry is a subset of the larger travel industry that provides travelers with overnight accommodation. Hotels differ from motels and inns because they are typically more luxurious and offer more amenities such as meeting spaces, private rooms and concierges. Additionally, hotels are generally located in more centralized locations such as airports, downtown districts and tourist areas where there is heavy foot traffic.

In this year’s 2023 survey, nearly a quarter of a million T+L readers shared their feedback on the best hotels in the United States and around the globe. While the results reveal that passion for travel has not waned during the pandemic, it’s clear that our readers prefer to stay in hotels they can truly love and are proud to recommend.

Whether you are looking for something romantic, family-friendly or even a hostel in the heart of the city, there are plenty of options to choose from. In fact, hostels have become popular amongst solo travelers who want to save on their accommodation while enjoying the party scene. Hostels also usually feature communal spaces, rooftop/in-house bars and some offer organized pub-crawls and tours to help you make the most out of your trip.
