The annual survey, now in its sixth year, gives Global Traveler readers the chance to voice their opinions on "the best" in many categories of business and luxury travel.
"We sincerely thank Global Traveler readers for this honor," said Bill Hague, executive vice president of International for AT&T Mobility and Consumer Markets.
