Isn’t it nice to get away from it all? Whether it’s overnight or several days, most getaways require a hotel stay.

But choosing the right hotel can be a trying task, especially when you take into account the tantalizing photos, customer reviews and eye-catching promotions.

The Observer-Reporter Best of the Best awards continues to celebrate the best businesses, organizations, people and more that the residents of Washington County, Greene County and the South Hills thought deserved the distinction of best in their respective categories.

The response from the community and nominees was overwhelming. More than 425,000 votes were captured from 28,000 unique voters, validating the vitality of the communities that comprise the Observer-Reporter’s coverage area.

One of our most popular categories was Best Hotel. Here’s what our readers came up with.

Hilton Garden Inn Pittsburgh/Southpointe
