Hotel Le Marais of the New Orleans Hotel Collection receives highest Expedia Travel Award

NEW ORLEANS - November 11, 2013 - The Hotel Le Marais, a boutique hotel of the New Orleans Hotel Collection announced that is has received the coveted   Expedia Insiders' Select award from the worldwide travel company.  

The Expedia Insiders' Select is an annual award recognizing the very best hotels available in Expedia's global marketplace, as judged by the experiences of customers. Based on more than 500,000 guest reviews submitted annually by travelers, only 650 hotels were designated the 2013 worldwide award recipients.

These properties have been identified by Expedia customers as consistently delivering superior services, an exceptional guest experience and notable value; earning a place on the Insiders' Select list is a testament to their ongoing commitment to excellence.

"This recognition by guests and travel professionals is exceedingly rare and highly coveted.  It was not one we searched out in any fashion except to put the comfort and desires of our guests first" said Craig Hulford, Area General Manager of the New Orleans Hotel Collection that manages the hotel for local owners.   "We are especially pleased that Hotel Le Marais has won this award as one of only two hotels in the entire region to be recognized this way."

Insiders' Select methodology:       Guest Reviews+ Value+ Expedia Hotel Expert input

Of the 150,000 hotels and resorts on Expedia, less than 5% -only 650 hotels are deemed Insiders' Select 2013. Eligible hotels were ranked with a numerical score. These scores are completely independent of advertisers and partners. Only the top hotels with the highest scores were chosen for the Insiders' Select list.

Guest Reviews
Expedia is home to more guest reviews than any other online travel company. Last year, travelers submitted more than a million new Guest Reviews of hotels across the globe. To ensure authenticity, the company verifies each Guest Review by confirming that the reviewer has stayed at the property. To qualify for the honor of inclusion on the Insiders' Select list, a hotel had to have a minimum number of reviews.

Judges systematically compared hotels and resorts to nearby properties with similar star ratings and amenities in order to determine the best value for money.

Expedia Hotel Expert Input
An extensive network of hundreds of experts in top destinations worldwide, provided their insight and firsthand knowledge of their destination's best hotels.
