New Delhi, October 30th, 2014: TripAdvisor®, the world’s largest travel site*, today announced the winners of its 2014 Travellers’ Choice® Awards for Heritage Hotels. The list recognises top 25 heritage properties in India, based on the millions of valuable reviews and opinions from TripAdvisor travellers.

to the winning hotels. TripAdvisor’s Travellers’ Choice Awards for Heritage Hotels recognize the best heritage properties in the country, and we are proud to honor the winners who have painstakingly and lovingly conserved these properties that have immense
historical and cultural significance.” Among the states, Rajasthan retains the title of the ‘official heritage state’ followed by Kerala on the second spot though the number of properties from Rajasthan has come down to 9 this year from 12 in 2013.
