LA LISTE to unveil World’s Best Hotels,
a must-have guide for discerning travellers
Paris, June 8, 2023
LA LISTE, known for its World’s Best Restaurants ranking, today announces World’s Best Hotels and Special Awards Hotels with Top 1,000 to be revealed June 2023
Profiles of 5,000 luxury outstanding hotels across 200 countries will be available for download this month on the LA LISTE mobile app offering the world’s best selection at your fingertips.
LA LISTE cuts through the chatter of hundreds of guidebooks, magazines, and review sites to bring users all the hospitality information they need in a simple, practical way. In a world where hyper-connected travelers want to plan trips with a scroll and a click, LA LISTE is the only digital tool to provide a truly global selection of the World’s Best Hotels.
Thanks to its unique algorithm, LA LISTE can offer much more than any other hotel ranking. Consider it ‘the ranking of rankings’ because of its meta-classification method, a technique widely used in the entertainment industry by sites such as Rotten Tomatoes and Metacritic. The LA LISTE approach has already proved itself indispensable to food lovers with its annual Top 1,000 World’s Best Restaurants ranking, published since 2015.
To compile its unique hotel ranking, LA LISTE aggregates reviews and results from over 300 travel guides, other rankings, media publications, and customer review sites, both national and international. From this research, 5,000 exceptional hotels emerged, each of which is now featured in the app. Using its bespoke algorithm, LA LISTE calculates a weighted average out of 100 for each entry and uses this to rank the Top 1,000 World’s Best Hotels around the world.
“LA LISTE is much more than a ranking system,” says Philippe Faure, President, and Founder of LA LISTE. “It’s the go-to source for the discerning traveller in search of excellence. Following the success of the World’s Best Restaurants and World’s Best Pastry Shops, our selection of the World’s Best Hotels completes LA LISTE’s contribution to luxury tourism.”
“By the summer, everyone who downloads the LA LISTE mobile app will be able to discover the Top 1,000 World’s Best Hotels as well as 5,000 hotels with a truly global spread across 200 countries.”
This new product – LA LISTE World’s Best Hotels – has evolved out of the world-renowned expertise of LA LISTE, which has published the industry-leading Top 1,000 World’s Best Restaurant selection every year since 2015 at prestigious culinary events. The 5,000 chosen hotels will further strengthen the LA LISTE database, which already features over 32,000 restaurants and pâtisseries.
LA LISTE’S World’s Best Hotels, the Top 1,000 World’s Best Hotels, and LA LISTE Special Awards Hotels will be announced at the end of June by press release and on the LA LISTE website and social networks. The LA LISTE app will be updated immediately to reflect the new launch.

About the LA LISTE Hotels methodology
LA LISTE is an independent ranking inaugurated in 2015. Our methodology for the new LA LISTE Hotels follows the restaurant ranking methodology: www.laliste.com/en/method
At LA LISTE, we firmly believe that many opinions are better than one. Our method identifies, collates, and condenses all the opinions that matter, from 300 travel guides, other rankings, media publications, and customer review sites, both national and international. From this research, 5,000 exceptional hotels emerged, each of which is now featured in the app. Using its bespoke algorithm, LA LISTE calculates a weighted average out of 100 for each entry and uses this to rank the Top 1,000 World’s Best Hotels on the planet.
“Our method is inspired by the meta-classifications used in other fields,” explains Jörg Zipprick, Co- Founder and Editor-in-Chief of LA LISTE. “These include the Shanghai Ranking in academia, tennis’s ATP, Rotten Tomatoes for movies and Metacritic for video games. Not only does this give us international reach, but it also provides real-time insights into new trends and how the media is interpreting them.”
