They like us, they really like us. Hawaii hotels and resorts made repeated appearances in the TripAdvisor 2012 Travelers' Choice Awards, its 10th annual listing as voted upon by site users.
The most oft-mentioned Hawaii property among all the lists is the Four Seasons Resort Maui at Wailea, which rates among the Top 25 Hotels in the U.S. (3), the Top 25 Hotels for Service in the U.S. (12) and the Top 25 Luxury Hotels in the U.S. (16).
Also among the Top 25 Hotels in the U.S. are the Four Seasons Resort Hualalai in Kona at No. 16, and at No. 23, the Koa Kea Hotel & Resort on Kauai (built where the Poipu Beach Hotel used to be).
As the sixth-best Luxury Hotel in the U.S. on the TripAdvisor list, the St. Regis Princeville Resort on Kauai outranked the Four Seasons Wailea. At No. 25 the Kahala Hotel & Resort rounded out the list.
Hawaii properties did not appear on two of the domestic lists: bargain hotels and all-inclusive resorts.
