HAMBURG, July 6, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --
The Radisson Blu Hotel Hamburg has announced that it has been named to the Expedia Insiders' Select list for 2012, an annual ranking of best-reviewed hotels as determined by the world's leading full-service online travel agency. The Insiders' Select list largely reflects the feedback from more than 500,000 verified Expedia customer reviews received during 2011, combined with a value rating and the local market expertise of more than 650 Expedia employees in local markets worldwide. Insiders' Select is an easy-to-browse list that helps travelers find the perfect hotel using the trusted insight of their fellow travelers.
The exclusive 2012 list designates only 650 hotels as Insiders' Select, from more than 150,000 properties available on Expedia-branded sites worldwide. Insiders' Select helps travelers make confident decisions by identifying the hotels in their destination that have been recognised by other travelers as delivering an excellent overall experience.
"We at the Radisson Blu Hotel Hamburg are consistently focused on delivering value to our guests in the form of superior customer service, ensuring our guests have an enjoyable travel experience," said Oliver Staas, General Manager for Radisson Blu Hotel Hamburg. "It is rewarding to see that commitment has been reflected in our placement on the Insiders' Select list."
"Expedia customers reward value," said Joe Megibow, vice president and general manager, Expedia.com. "Value reflects an everyday commitment to excellence on the part of the hotel. For these hotels, customer satisfaction is paramount and, when we publish the list, we reward those hotels by doing more than sending them a plaque. We lift them up and make them visible through every stage of the booking process. This has an impact: millions of travelers visit Expedia's 30 global- travel sites every day because they are looking for value. So everyone wins."
Visitors to Expedia sites can also find Insiders' Select-designated properties by sorting via the Hotel Preferences amenity drop-down menu. For more information on Insiders' Select, visit http://www.expedia.com/insidersselect.
