Hotels.com has unveiled Perfect Somewheres 2024, a first-of-its-kind program celebrating a selection of the top one per cent of hotels on its app.

The awards are based on a data-driven approach evaluating how hotels treat guests.

This year, more than 60 Canadian hotels made the list, including Le Germain Maple Leaf Square in Toronto, Wedgewood Hotel and Spa in Vancouver, and W Montréal.

Winning hotels were selected based on proprietary guest experience data, which factors in traveller reviews, interactions with staff, ratings on property facilities and condition.

Select winning hotels are VIP Access partners, meaning they offer additional perks to members to elevate guest experience.

Travellers can use this curated list as their go-to authority when searching for the best possible hotel experience.

“Perfect Somewheres 2024 recognizes the hotel industry’s crème de la crème,” said Expedia Group’s senior vice-president of global communications Lauri Metrose. “Most programs use only reviews or focus solely on luxury — our new awards program spotlights hotels that craft extraordinary experiences and elevate the travel journey for our guests, regardless of the number of stars. This program fuels a powerful partnership: We showcase our partners’ excellence and, together, we connect travellers with their perfect somewhere. We look forward to these awards becoming a benchmark for excellence in hospitality.”

Research conducted by Hotels.com found that 61 per cent of travellers admit to suffering from “choice paralysis,” caused by too many options when deciding where to stay.

Over a quarter (27 per cent) spend more than 10 hours researching which hotel to stay at, and 27 per cent have also given up altogether due to how time-consuming it became.

A shocking 26 per cent of travellers even said they would clean the bathroom or mop the floor (19 per cent) to avoid the stress associated with booking their stay.

Almost half (45 per cent) of travellers are more likely to use a credible hotel-grading program to source their stays.

Canada’s 2024 Standout Stays

From hidden gems to world-renowned destinations, these hotels are just a few properties representing the 700 that displayed hospitality excellence across the globe in 2024.
