  • Upper Upscale Segment: Joie De Vivre Ventana Inn & Spa (Big Sur, California);
  • Upscale Segment: Crowne Plaza Z Ocean Hotel South Beach (Miami Beach, Florida);

Best Performing Hotel Award methodology

The winners were determined based on a number of criteria, including the following metrics: occupancy, average daily rate and revenue per available room, over the two-year period of 2010 and 2011. The 2011 performance was compared against each property’s Market Scale performance as well as the 2010 performance. In order for a hotel to be considered for this award, the hotel was required to report data for the 24-month period, had to be open for those consecutive 24 months and reported no room-count changes during the 24-month period.
