Share This:

The October 2011 issue of Andrew Harper’s legendary Hideaway Report reveals the results of an annual survey of his readers’ favorite hotels and resorts worldwide. Harper’s primary focus is on smaller properties, those that offer both distinctive charm and a high level of personal service. The results therefore are divided into six categories: Top 20 United States Hideaways, Top 20 International Hideaways, Top 20 City Hotels, Top 20 Beach Resorts, Top 20 Family Resorts, Top 20 Food & Wine Resorts, Top 20 Golf Resorts, all properties with 75 or fewer rooms.

Despite the continuing downturn, Andrew Harper members still vacation an average of 32 days a year. Most encouragingly, 31 percent of respondents say they will travel more this year than last, with a clear majority (58 percent) saying that they expect to travel “about the same amount.”

Said Mr. Harper, “Much of the pleasure I derive from editing Hideaway Report stems from the knowledge that my audience is composed of active and sophisticated travelers, people with both the inclination and the financial means to accept my advice and to follow in my footsteps.”
