Gold List

Picking the perfect place to stay in Chicago, Chile, or China is no easy matter…unless you consult the Gold List.

Almost 21,000 travelers completed the Readers' Choice Survey, thereby selecting the world's top hotels and resorts. To get at the nuances behind the numbers, we contacted readers to discover precisely what made a specific room, view, or locale nonpareil.

The upshot? This list of heart-stirring havens, here and abroad.

The Gold List is based on data collected from the annual Readers' Choice Survey; to qualify for inclusion in these rankings, a property had to receive a required minimum number of responses.
