Condé Nast Traveler readers have spoken and continue to choose Four Seasons hotels and resorts as favourite places to stay around the world, including 40 properties on the 2014 Gold List, the most of any hotel brand. This accolade honours the world’s best places to stay as determined by the 2013 Reader’s Choice Survey conducted by the publication.

Notable results include:

In addition, Condé Nast Traveler rewards time-honoured reader favourites with the Platinum Circle, a list of properties that have received Gold List distinction each year for the past five years. Four Seasons continues to be a reader favourite with a record 25 Four Seasons properties included in this year’s Platinum Circle, more than any other brand, including: Four Seasons Resort Hualalai at Historic Ka'upulehu, Four Seasons Hotel Chicago, Four Seasons Hotel Gresham Palace Budapest, Four Seasons Resort Costa Rica at Peninsula Papagayo, Four Seasons Hotel Hong Kong and Four Seasons Hotel Amman.

Condé Nast Traveler’s annual Gold List identifies the best of the best, ­the gold standard of hotels, resorts, and cruise lines. Nearly 80,000 of the world's most discerning travellers (a record-setting number) produced a final selection of the very best places in the world by participating in the annual Readers' Choice survey. Consistency is rewarded: those who make the Gold List five years in a row earn Platinum Circle status. 

The 2014 Condé Nast Traveler Gold List is featured in the January 2014 issue of Condé Nast Traveler, on newsstands December 24, 2013 and the complete list is available now online.
