Since 2022, Best Hotels Anywhere has been a growing resource for finding the best hotels in popular tourist destinations around the world. This page explains the established process we always follow to provide trustworthy, accessible and accurate information.
We’d like to draw your attention to our editorial process because it’s the foundation for our entire business. We want to show you why you can trust us with your travel plans. All of the content you will find on our site is based on the 4 pillars below.
1. First Hand Travel Experience
In today’s world, information is incredibly easy to access, but it can be inaccurate, irrelevant, overwhelming and biased. Too many sites regurgitate similar versions of what someone else has already written, and often without any real life experience.
We provide quality content that is trustworthy, evidence-based, accurate, understandable and actionable because we have personally visited every location you can read about on this blog.
We’ve been traveling the world full time since 2018. And over the last 6 years, we’ve spent days, weeks or months of our time and energy in travel destinations around the world in order to provide you with the best information possible.
Every guide is written directly from first hand experience because we have lived those experiences ourselves. Our goal is to always provide completely original hotel guides to help with planning your upcoming trips.
2. Written By Us
In addition to personally visiting every place we write about, every guide you read on Best Hotels Anywhere has been exclusively written by us, Mark and Kristen Morgan.
We do not allow guest posts and we do not outsource any writing or content creation of any type. While we agree AI automation can be helpful in certain scenarios, we do not use AI for any of our content or writing.
Since we personally travel to every destination, we’re subject matter experts in everything we write about, so it’s very easy for us to create our hotel guides from scratch with no additional tools.
We also use our own photos in every single hotel guide we write, which proves that we have visited each destination ourselves. This is important for building trust with our readers. You know beyond a doubt that we have genuinely visited each place we write about.
These processes ensure high journalistic standards for all of our content which showcases our individual perspectives written for people by people. As a team of two, we both influence every piece of content as it’s published to ensure accuracy and quality.
The biggest hurdle we face is time. It’s slow going with just two writers creating content from the ground up with no automation. But we’re determined to continue publishing original content directly from our own experiences to provide the best information possible.
3. Proven Scientific Method
We’re scientists by trade and the hard skills we learned in our various laboratory leadership roles translate into our strategic and methodical approach to creating content. This scientific background is what makes our brand unique. You can read more about us here.
Here’s our proven scientific approach to creating helpful and original hotel guides:
- Extensive research and planning before visiting any destination
- Staying in at least one or two hotels in each place we visit
- Collating unbiased reviews from thousands of travelers across multiple sources
- Assessing what makes a great hotel in terms of cost, location, quality and amenities
- Hours of writing hotel guides directly from our experiences
Each guide we publish takes between one to three full days to complete. It depends on the destination, the amount of hotels available and the depth of each guide.
Just like a scientific research paper, we only reference credible sources and reputable websites that we trust as readers ourselves when planning our own trips.
We also perform regular audits to continually monitor our content to ensure we’re sharing the most up-to-date and accurate information, so you will see two dates on our guides:
- Published date – The date a guide was originally written and published.
- Last updated date – The last time we updated a guide, which could include updates to guest ratings, price categories or replacing certain hotels entirely.
Links in our articles are not for sale. We do not place any links as favors and we do not participate in any link-building schemes behind the scenes.
4. We Pay For Our Own Hotels
We always pay for our own hotels when we visit new places around the world. This means you’re never going to read biased guides based on a paid collaboration or a sponsored trip. You can rest assured every guide we write is completely genuine and without bias.
An Editorial Process Created For You
Our readers are always our first priority. We strive to be your go to resource for finding the perfect hotel in your next travel destination. This editorial process is essential to give you the most trustworthy, accessible and accurate information possible.
We can honestly say we have the best job in the world and we genuinely look forward to waking up every morning so we can help you choose the right hotel for your budget and travel goals.
