Condé Nast Traveler: Readers’ Choice Awards 2012

Z Ocean is proud to be recognized as the second best hotel in Miami and ranked #7 out of top 20 hotels of Florida, according to The Condé Nast Traveler. Award participants included 46,476 readers who elected 1,306 of the best properties and places from all over the world.

This year’s Condé Nast Traveler Florida award had readers rate the top hotels in Delray Beach, Fort Lauderdale, Islamorada, Key West, Miami, Miami Beach, Naples, Palm Beach, and St. Augustine. The overall rate is based upon the exceptionality of rooms, service, food, location, design and activities.

Each category gets a score out of a 100, these six scores are then averaged to determine the final Reader’s Choice Rating. Z Ocean scored high with a 90.5, placing above other Miami notable hotels such as The Four Seasons Miami, The W South Beach Hotel & Residences and The Setai.

Behind the Poll

In 1988, The Condé Nast Traveler Readers’ Choice Survey was made available to all readers through a secure Web site. This year’s final tabulations of 28,876 responses were administered by Global Market Insite, Inc., of Boston.

The online questionnaire contains lists of candidates in various categories (Cities, Hotels, etc.). Individual candidates are judged by relevant criteria for each. Those that receive a required minimum number of responses are deemed eligible for a Readers’ Choice Award.

The Evaluation

Each candidate is rated, criterion-by-criterion, on a five-point scale: excellent, very good, good, fair, and poor. Those scores, which represent the percentage of respondents rating a candidate excellent or very good, are averaged to determine the final score published.
