Taipei, Oct. 16 (CNA) Two hotels operated by Taiwanese businesses have been listed in the top 10 best hotels in Asia and Venice, Italy, by readers of a U.S. luxury and lifestyle travel magazine for their world-class facilities and excellent service.

Grand Hyatt Taipei was ranked the seventh top hotel in Asia in the 2018 Conde Nast Traveler Readers' Choice Awards.

The prestigious U.S. travel magazine announced the results of its annual awards in New York on Oct. 9. The Grand Hyatt Taipei was the only hotel from Taiwan recognized as among the very best in Asia.

The hotel attributed its high rating to excellent transport links, comprehensive facilities and the service excellence.

Meanwhile, Palazzo Venart Luxury Hotel in Venice owned by Taiwan's LDC Hotels & Resorts Group was named the third top hotel in Venice by Conde Nast Traveler readers.

This year, members of the public have been able to vote as part of the Conde Nast Traveler survey since March. As a result, more than 429,000 participants cast their votes and left thousands of comments on 7,234 hotels and resorts, 583 cities, 453 cruise ships, 100 islands, 172 airlines and 197 airports, resulting in what the magazine calls "the 1,859 best travel experiences in the world."
