    Cosmosphere Honored as Best for Geeks in TripSavvy Editors’ Choice Awards

    October 28, 2021

    Cosmosphere announced today that it has been named a winner in the 2021 TripSavvy Editors’ Choice Awards in the Best for Geeks category.

    Find all the winners in the Best for Geeks category here.

    The TripSavvy Editors’ Choice Awards are unlike any other travel honor on the internet, in that they use a combination of proprietary machine learning and real, human vetting to recognize the world’s very best restaurants, hotels, and attractions.

    From a pool of over 60,000, only one percent of businesses, including the Cosmosphere, passed TripSavvy’s rigorous testing and standards. The evaluation process for choosing winners considers reviews, audience metrics, customer service and value.

    Businesses that outrank competitors in these areas must then be highlighted by TripSavvy editors and writers as being the most special, noteworthy and trustworthy businesses to be named an Editors’ Choice winner.

    “The 2021 award winners are truly remarkable” says Molly Fergus, VP & General Manager of TripSavvy. “Our writers and editors are tasked with discovering the best of the best in the travel and hospitality industry, and Cosmosphere stood out. We’re thrilled to honor them.”
