A recent survey conducted by Luxury Branding, a London-based consultancy that specializes in the global luxury market, reveals the ranking of the most popular, luxury hotels and resorts in 2015. 

The study looked at hotels worldwide and independently analyzed 2.25 million public reviews on TripAdvisor to create the scores for each hotel. TripAdivsor receives 375 million unique visitors each month and ranks more than 950,000 hotels and lodgings around the globe. TripAdvisor allowed Luxury Branding to analyze their public data, but the site was not affiliated with the study. 

The top 10 luxury hotels include:

1. The Ritz-Carlton
2. Oberoi Hotels & Resorts
3. Raffles Hotel & Resorts
4. Langham Hotels and Resorts
5. Rocco Forte Hotels
6. Dorchester Collection
7. Capella Hotels and Resorts
8. Park Hyatt
9. Shangri-La Hotels and Resorts
10. Armani Hotels & Resorts

There are some obvious luxury brands missing from the top 10 rankings. Four Seasons Hotels and Resorts took the number 13 spot, The Peninsula Hotels ranked 20th, St. Regis came in 26th and Waldorf Astoria Hotels & Resorts came in 50th.
