Enchanté Boutique Hotel owner Abigail Ahrens uttered one adjective when notified that her downtown Los Altos hotel ranked No. 9 on the TripAdvisor Travelers’ Choice Awards list of the Top 25 Small Hotels in the U.S.: “mind-blowing.”
Ahrens received an email with the news Jan. 24.
“Travelers’ Choice Awards are the highest honor TripAdvisor could give – meaning your business is truly exceptional,” the travel website’s email to Ahrens stated. “Based on reviews and opinions from millions of travelers, you’re in the top 1% of hotels.”
Ahrens said she and her team continue to work hard to meet the standard. Her business is now one of nearly 8,000 properties in 94 countries and eight regions worldwide that have received a Traveler’s Choice award over 17 years. California and Florida had the greatest number of hotels honored this year.
