Social trip-planning site Gogobot announced the latest edition of its semi-annual Travelers’ Favorite Awards on Thursday, with Las Vegas taking honors in two categories.
The city placed fifth among the Top 20 destinations in the world — up a rank from last year — placing behind San Francisco, Paris, New York City and London.
In the World’s Best Hotels category, Steve Wynn’s Encore took second place behind the Royal Hawaiian in Honolulu. MGM Grand also made the list, ranking 11th in the Top 20.
