2017 Travelzoo Member Favorite Award Winners
Travelzoo members take dining and relaxing seriously. In 2016 alone, they purchased over a quarter of a million restaurant and spa offers, and we asked them to leave detailed feedback about each of their experiences. From Michelin Guide picks to Four Seasons spas, these are the best of the best – see if your favorite made the cut!
The top 5 in the restaurant category are:
Alexander’s Steakhouse (Pasadena, California)
Alexander’s Steakhouse is not only one of Pasadena’s top restaurants, but also the highest rated among our members of any Travelzoo restaurant partner to date. That’s no easy feat, but it’s not hard to see why: “The food was excellent, and the overall experience was absolutely amazing” (Christopher H., Travelzoo member).
Starlite (San Diego, California)
This craft cocktail bar is consistently ranked one of San Diego’s best spots to drink, and its Moscow mules and juicy burgers are a favorite of food critics and bloggers across the city. “I’ve never had a bad meal here!” says Jodette L., Travelzoo member.
Kristalbelli (New York City)
New York City has no shortage of mouthwatering Korean barbecue restaurants, but Zagat calls Kristalbelli one of the city’s best. That’s just one the many reasons our members repeatedly flock to this Michelin-recommended spot. Among the others? “Can’t give this place enough great remarks…from the minute we walked in, the staff was fantastic. The food was top notch. You will love it!” raves Drew S., Travelzoo member.
The Birchwood (Tampa, Florida)
The Tampa Bay Times says The Birchwood is “red-hot” with its “buzz, location and talent,” and the picturesque views of North Straub Park and Tampa Bay from the terrace are not to be missed. Our members can’t get enough of its winning formula: “culinary delight matched with impeccable service” (Ricardo Y., Travelzoo member).
The Fourth Estate at The National Press Club (Washington, D.C.)
It’s practically neighbors with the White House, and the historic venue and intimate setting makes diners feel like they’re in on D.C.’s best-kept secret.
