The Westin Princeville Ocean Resort Villas was awarded the prestigious 2011 Insiders’ Select Award by Expedia.com®, the world’s leading online travel agency. Insiders’ Select, a global program that identifies the top hotels available on Expedia based on “quality and value,” ranked the Westin Princeville Ocean Resort Villas number 11 out of 500 top hotels and resorts worldwide. It was the highest ranking of any Hawaii hotel.
The ranking is determined by Expedia customer reviews as well as Expedia hotel experts. More than 500,000 guest-submitted reviews of hotels across the globe are verified and analyzed by Expedia to compile the Insiders’ Select list. Of the 130,000 hotels and resorts offered on Expedia sites internationally, only 500 hotels with the highest scores are deemed Insiders’ Select winners.
The Insiders’ Select program debuted in 2007. This year, Expedia made the requirements more rigorous; the company required more reviews per property and higher scores per review to make the list. Hotels that made the 2011 list received an average review score of 4.7 and a 98.2 percent recommendation rate.
