Asking this is much like asking 'which is the best linux distro'. You won't get one answer.
What type of system are you most comfortable with operating? If it is Microsoft system (for example) you have already got you answer. Are you are looking for a bare-metal hypervisor? Do you need GUI-heavy management tools? What sort of hardware are you going to use (old/new?). Probably looking at a comparison chart would be your best option.
I could tell you what I use and why but that won't do you a bit of good. (kvm, stable and easy).
