The Hotel at Auburn University and Ariccia Cucina Italiana have each been recognized as one of the best in the region based on 2019 traveler reviews on Tripadvisor. The Travelers' Choice Award is given to the top 10% of establishments listed on the travel website, and the 2020 award marks The Hotel’s seventh year in a row to win this award.

These awards are based on a full year of Tripadvisor reviews, prior to any changes caused by the pandemic, and show travelers’ ultimate favorite, top 1% of hospitality businesses around the globe.

“We are honored to have received this award from Tripadvisor,” said Hans van der Reijden, managing director of The Hotel at Auburn University & Dixon Conference Center. “This year has certainly had its share of challenges to overcome, but our mission has always remained the same– to treat our guests with courtesy and create memorable experiences for them. Our team members have done that and more, despite the limitations imposed by the pandemic. This award shows that we are accomplishing that goal.”

“Winners of the 2020 Travelers’ Choice Awards should be proud of this distinguished recognition,” said Kanika Soni, Chief Commercial Officer at Tripadvisor. “Although it’s been a challenging year for travel and hospitality, we want to celebrate our partners' achievements.
