My key criteria for hotels: basic cleanliness, safety, value for money.
Worst hotel experience: probably dingy shack in the middle of the Colca Canyon in Peru.
Best hotel experience: The Oriental, Bangkok (sheer quality of service, character and attention to detail trumps noisy river boats and groups of tourists taking pictures)
