"To compile the Fodor's 100 list, we look for properties within emerging destinations, trends our editors have been seeing throughout the year, new and noteworthy hotels and enduring favorites to create a list that will inspire all types of travel and travelers."

As a 2013 Fodor's 100 Hotel Award-winning property, Hotel Maison De Ville will be featured on and in a free interactive eBook, available in the iBookstore. A complete list of all 100 selected hotels is available at
