Two iconic Monaco hotels in the running for Travel + Leisure’s World’s Best Awards 2024

The Hôtel de Paris Monte-Carlo and Hôtel Hermitage Monte-Carlo, two of Monaco’s most famous hotels and the jewels in Monte-Carlo Société des Bains de Mer’s portfolio, have made it onto Travel + Leisure’s 2024 shortlist for the World’s Best Awards.  

Every year, the online and print Travel + Leisure magazine asks its readers to vote for their favourite experiences in its World’s Best Awards survey. From hotels and resorts to cities and even specific islands, the rankings honour the finest in the travel and hospitality industries.  

In the 2024, two of Monaco’s most emblematic addresses have made the prestigious cut: the Hôtel de Paris Monte-Carlo and Hôtel Hermitage Monte-Carlo, both of which are run by Monte-Carlo Société des Bains de Mer (SBM).  

The hotels also featured in last year’s list, but failed to make the Top 10. In 2023, the top spot was clinched by the Four Seasons Hotel Istanbul at Sultanahmet, closely followed by the Four Seasons Hotel Istanbul at the Bosphorus. In third and fourth place were the Parisian Hôtel Plaza Athénée and Hôtel de Crillon. Madrid’s Rosewood Villa Magna ranked fifth, while the sixth position was taken by Rome’s Hotel de Russie. London’s Mandarin Oriental Hyde Park claimed the seventh spot, followed by One Aldwych, also in the English capital. Ninth place went to the Four Seasons Hotel Milano in Milan and the Top 10 was rounded out by the Shangri-La The Shard in London.

There are some great prizes available to those who take part, but these are unfortunately only available to US-based participants. Voting closes on 26th February and the winners will be announced in Travel + Leisure’s August 2024 issue.
