Additionally, the Saxon has been named #32 in the world, in the list of the top 100 hotels overall. Saxon is also a WBA Hall of Fame honouree, this designation means that the hotel has been voted onto the World's Best Awards list for the past 10 years consecutively.
THE METHODOLOGY BEHIND THE AWARDS:
A survey developed by the editors of Travel + Leisure, in association with research firm M&RR, was made available at tlworldsbest.com from November 5, 2018 to March 4, 2019. Readers were invited to participate through Travel + Leisure magazine, T+L tablet editions, newsletters, social media, and travelandleisure.com. M&RR maintained, monitored, and kept the survey website secure, and also collected and tabulated the responses. To protect the integrity of the data, after the survey closed, Travel + Leisure and M&RR screened the responses to identify fraudulent votes, which were eliminated from the final tallies.
A minimum number of responses was necessary for a candidate to be eligible for inclusion in the World’s Best Awards rankings. Some companies were eligible to be rated in multiple categories; they were scored independently for each category.
