  • TripAdvisor has exclusively revealed to MailOnline Travel what the most-booked hotels are via their site
  • A Best Western Premier by the Grand Canyon was the most-booked in the world, with prime park access
  • The Montague on The Gardens was the UK’s most-booked homestay, with London’s British Museum close by 

Sadie Whitelocks for MailOnline

It doesn’t look like much, but there is something remarkable about the Best Western Premier Inn at the Grand Canyon, Arizona – it’s the world’s most-booked hotel.

At least, it is on TripAdvisor. But given that 390million people visit the site every month, it makes the achievement rather noteworthy.

The site has revealed to MailOnline Travel its most-booked hotels in the world, in Europe and in the UK – and it seems that location is a major factor in ensuring a steady flow of visitors.

The Best Western Premier’s location next to one of the natural wonders of the world no doubt helps with footfall, and the hotel in Britain that’s top of the popularity stakes must surely be given a boost by its proximity to one of London’s most popular attractions.

The most-booked hotel in Europe is also in a prime spot, next to some of Dublin’s best bars. 

Scroll down to see the most-booked hotels in the world and what past guests have had to say about them.

There are two shuttle stops right outside the doors of this lodge, and the main general store of the park is right next door! The lodge itself was very clean and had two great places to eat. The staff was very friendly and helpful, especially since it was our first trip to the park. Highly recommend.’
