By Amy Schwartz

Below are the three companies in the Hotels, Resorts & Cruise Lines industry with the highest price to earnings (P/E) ratios. P/E is an important valuation tool when comparing companies in the same industry. A higher P/E ratio means that investors are paying more for each unit of net income, so the stock is more expensive compared to one with a lower P/E ratio.

Hyatt Hotels ranks highest with a a P/E ratio of 32.78. Choice Hotels International is next with a a P/E ratio of 25.58. Marriott International ranks third highest with a a P/E ratio of 24.93.
