The hotels.com list includes hotels that are in super-close proximity to major shopping areas for example, NYC's Park Central was offered as a pick because it's two blocks from a lot of the big shops on Fifth Avenue (but, um, it's not a very nice hotel; seriously). The other hotels that made the list did so for similar reasons or for spa offerings not necessarily for safety or women-focused amenities offered.
Some hotels out there have women-only floors. Some, like Kimpton, offer specific amenities for women and programs targeting toward female travelers. And, of course, there are the seemingly-endless parades of girlfriend getaway packages, some of which are appealing and some of which are so, so, so off-base.
But what do women really want? Ladies, what are you looking for in a hotel? Is it really close proximity to shopping spots? We don't think so but we could be wrong.Tell us.
