TripAdvisor just released their 2017 Traveler’s Choice Awards and The Cedar House Inn came out on top. They won 1st place in the category, “Top 25 B&Bs and Inns in the United States.” They also won 2nd place for “Top 25 B&Bs and Inns in the World.”
“We’re privileged to carry on the legacy of the previous owner’s vision for the inn and proud to be part of a business community that makes the City of St. Augustine an incredibly popular place to live and visit,” said Cyndi Humphrey, the current owner/operator of Cedar House, in a release on the inn’s website.
Cyndi also says she shares this Traveler’s Choice Award with her committed “5-star team” as well as all the guests who have contributed to TripAdvisor. “I’m thrilled that the Cedar House Inn has been recognized as another feather in the cap of our historic, beautiful city,” Humphrey said in a release.
The Traveler’s Choice Awards first began in 2002 and it is the highest honor TripAdvisor gives. In order to win a Traveler’s Choice Award thousands rate and review the business. Bed & Breakfasts are rated on service, quality and customer satisfaction. More than 7,000 businesses receive the Traveler’s Choice Award. That may seem like a lot; however, that number only represents about 1% of all the businesses listed on TripAdvisor.
This is not Humphrey’s first endeavor in the hospitality business. She has served as a former executive of The Ritz Carlton, The Four Seasons, and was the Senior Vice President for a major league baseball team owner.
Categories for the Traveler’s Choice Awards include, best destinations, best museums, best hotels, and of course best Bed and Breakfasts. Cedar House Inn is located at 79 Cedar Street and is a classic Victorian home built in 1893 and has eight rooms. It is also a member of the St. Augustine Historic Inns. Cedar House Inn is used to receiving awards. The Cedar House Inn has won the St. Augustine Record’s “Best of St. Augustine, Bed & Breakfast” for the past 8 years.
