NEW YORK, October 13, 2010 - Conde Nast Traveler today announced the results of its 2010 Readers' Choice Awards, ranking the best cities, islands, cruise lines, airlines, hotels, resorts, and car rental agencies worldwide. The awards appear in the November issue (on newsstands October 19) and are derived from the Conde Nast Traveler Readers' Choice survey. This year, an overwhelming 25,916 readers voted on more than 10,000 properties and destinations. This year, the ratings are stratospheric, as 281 places and properties achieve scores of 90 or above.
"The big news is that our readers' appetite for travel has proven to be undeterred and indestructible, and their standards are more exacting than ever," said Conde Nast Traveler Editor in Chief Klara Glowczewska. "They are an army of trusted judges, and their votes and evaluations have rendered a Readers' Choice Award one of the highest encomiums in the entire travel industry."
The results of the 2010 Readers Choice Awards reveal some surprising news:
The Readers' Choice Awards gala was held on Tuesday, October 12th in New York City at the IAC Building and was hosted byAngie Harmon and Liev Schreiber.
METHODOLOGY Every year since 1988, a select sample of Conde Nast Traveler readers have taken the Readers' Choice Survey. The questionnaire is available to all readers through a secure Web site. The final tabulations of 25,916 responses were done by Global Market Insite, Inc., of Boston. Organization: Poll categories (Cities, Hotels, etc.) are followed by the criteria for each. Questionnaires contained lists of candidates (individual cities, hotels, etc.), and write-ins were allowed. Only candidates that received a required minimum number of responses were deemed eligible for an award. Evaluation: Each candidate was rated, criterion by criterion, on a five-point scale: excellent, very good, good, fair, and poor. Criterion scores, which represent the percentage of respondents rating a candidate excellent or very good, were averaged to determine the final score. For example, in the Islands category, Maui's 90.7 is the average of its scores for Activities, Atmosphere/Ambience, Beaches, Friendliness, Lodging, Restaurants, and Scenery.
