Preferred Hotels & Resorts, the world’s largest independent hotel brand, has earned the prestigious distinction of being named the number one “Most Excellent” large hotel chain in the world by TripAdvisor. For its first-ever “Most Excellent” awards, TripAdvisor selected the winners based on which brands have the highest percentage of Certificate of Excellence recipients globally for 2018. With 532 distinctive properties within its global brand portfolio boasting this prominent seal, Preferred Hotels & Resorts made the top of the list in the “large hotel chains” category (>500 hotels).
