Best Hotels on Earth 2022 per new Tripadvisor list Travelers’ Choice Awards

Costa Rica is home to the world’s best hotel, as New York City’s The Mark Hotel took the top spot in the United States, the second straight year a hotel in NYC won the award, according to a recent report.

Tripadvisor announced the winners of the annual Travelers’ Choice Awards for hotels, ranking the most well-reviewed hotels on Tripadvisor over the last 12-month period from Jan. 1 through Dec. 31, 2021. Rankings are determined based on the quality and quantity of traveler reviews and ratings. 

“We know there is not a one-size-fits-all approach to travel planning. Some travelers are looking for unique stays – ranging from cave hotels to overwater bungalows – while others are looking for a quaint B&B,”  Kanika Soni, chief commercial officer at Tripadvisor, said in a statement. “No matter what type of trip you are looking for, this year’s Travelers’ Choice Awards – with winners spanning six continents and 90 countries – showcase the top recommendations from other travelers.”

The No. 1 Top Hotel in the world for 2022 is Tulemar Bungalows & Villas in Costa Rica, located on a hillside overlooking the Pacific Ocean. Tulemar is frequently called an “amazing stay in paradise,” according to Tripadvisor. 

The Mark Hotel was ranked the best hotel in the U.S. for 2022, the debut appearance for the hotel in the Travelers’ Choice Best of the Best awards, with the hotel visited by celebrity guests including Kim Kardashian and Meghan Markle. The Mark is located in a landmark building built in 1927 which has been updated on the interior. 

“We are honored that The Mark has been selected as Tripadvisor’s No.1 Top Hotel in the U.S. and as the No. 1 Luxury Hotel in the U.S. for 2022. I speak on behalf of our entire team when I thank each guest who took the time to leave a review and share their experiences with others,” Andrew Jeffries, director of Sales & Marketing for The Mark, said in a statement.

Candleberry Inn in Cape Cod was ranked the No. 2 best bed and breakfast and inn in the world, No. 1 in the U.S., with five U.S. properties ranked in the top 25 bed and breakfasts and inns in 2022.
