Bargain Beauties and Five-Star Finds Highlighted in Seventh Annual Awards
ROXBURY, NY, January 28, 2009—The Roxbury was chosen as a top ten hotel in the United States in not one but two coveted categories, Best Service and Best Hidden Gem, by TripAdvisor® in its 2009 Travelers’ Choice® awards. Now in its seventh year, the TripAdvisor Travelers’ Choice awards honor the world’s best hotels, earning their distinction from those who know them best – real travelers.
Unlike any other hotel awards programs in the world, TripAdvisor® Travelers’ Choice® winners are based on the millions of real and unbiased reviews and opinions about hotels on™ and content from across the web. Hotels received awards in the following categories: Best Service, Best Hidden Gems, Best Luxury, Best Bargains, Best for Families, Best Inns & B&Bs, Best for Romance, Best All-Inclusive and Best Brands.

The Roxbury was ranked as #3 in the United States in the Best Service category and #4 in the United States in the Best Hidden Gem category. “To be ranked so highly among such amazing properties in California, Florida, Cape Cod, and other major tourist destinations seems almost unbelievable to us,” beamed Gregory Henderson, co-owner of The Roxbury. “We have to keep pinching ourselves to make sure this isn’t a dream. The bruises aren’t pretty…”

“TripAdvisor travelers always appreciate great values, and 2009 is certainly no exception. The 2009 Travelers’ Choice awards highlight more bargain properties than ever before with 190, nearly five times as many as last year,” said Michele Perry, vice president of global communications for TripAdvisor. “Millions of real travelers worldwide have helped identify these outstanding hotels, recognized for their exceptional accommodations, service, and value.”
