Best List of 2013: The Master List of Worldwide Hotel Openings
It's that time of year again: the 2013 HotelChatter Awards! Today and tomorrow, we'll be showcasing the best (and worst) of hotels over the past year. But we couldn't do it without you! Let us know your thoughts in the comments below, or shoot us an email. And the Award goes to...
You may have noticed that Lists are kind of a big deal on the internet. Apparently, humans are only able to
linger on a web page process information if it comes in a list format anchored by giant photos. And the more inane the topic, the more people will want to read it.
Admittedly, we love lists here at HotelChatter because there are so many you can write about the hotel experience. Yet we like to keep our lists relevant for hotel guests and filled with actual useful tips. So it's no surprise here that Master List of Worldwide Hotel Openings was the most popular HotelChatter list of 2013. (Stay tuned for 2014's list coming soon!)
Following that was the entertaining 10 Things Everyone Does in a Hotel Room But Won't Admit list. (Ok, that one wasn't so much informative but we bet it made you feel good knowing you weren't the only one who walks around naked in your hotel room while eating a $4 Snickers bar.) Other top lists of the year were 13 Things You Wish Didn't Happen in Hotel Rooms (But They Do), 5 Wedding Elopement Packages For Low-Key Couples, Some Helpful Advice: What NOT To Do in a Hotel, and 5 Hotel Booking Sites You Should Know About and Use. (See? Keeping it useful.)
We'll be rolling out some more lists in 2014 but don't worry, we won't be turning HotelChatter into a site full of nothing but random lists. After all, that wouldn't go well. Would it?
