Trivago.com Names Newport a Top 20 City to Stay for 2015

Tuesday, February 03, 2015

 

The world's largest hotel search site, Trivago.com, recently compiled a list of America’s Top 50 Cities for quality accommodation and Newport, Rhode Island is ranked #17.
 
“Today’s savvy travelers increasingly rely on online reviews to choose lodging best suited for both their leisure and business travel needs,” says Evan Smith, President and CEO of Discover Newport. “They also use search sites to compare rates. Trivago offers a comprehensive search and booking experience and we’re delighted that Newport was ranked in the Top 20 Cities to Stay, especially as the site garners more than 80 million visitors per month.”
 
More than 140 million hotel ratings aggregated from 31 booking sites were used to calculate the Reputation Ranking. Hotels with more than 60 reviews and cities in the U.S. with over 50 hotels were analyzed with 100% as a perfect score.
 
“Newport’s ranking between major tourism hubs like Philadelphia and New Orleans places it amongst some of America’s most sought after vacation spots,” says Samantha Fanelli, US Communications at Trivago. “A city’s reputation as a tourist destination depends largely on the quality of the accommodation available for travelers. With its seaside culture, celebrated history and some of the best rated hotels in the nation, Newport is definitely a top city to discover in 2015.”
