New Guidebooks Feature More Than 1100 Exquisite Properties, including Trout Point Lodge
New York ‐‐‐Condé Nast Johansens, the international luxury travel guide of premium resorts, hotels and spas from the most trusted name in travel, Condé Nast Publications Ltd., today announced the release of its beautiful new portfolio of guides including the 2010 Recommended Hotels, Inns, Resorts and Spas – The Americas, Atlantic, Caribbean and Pacific. For the 2nd year, Trout Point Lodge of Nova Scotia was among just 2 properties in Atlantic Canada in the guide.
Highlighting more than 300 of the most luxurious hotels, inns, resorts and spas in the Americas, Atlantic, Caribbean and Pacific regions, the 2010 Condé Nast Johansens guide acts as a road‐map to quality and value. Recommendations are based on excellence of service, cuisine, location and unique style, making the Guides one of the most trusted resources for exemplary accommodations.
“We do all the research for you”, says Lesley O’Malley‐Keyes, Condé Nast Johansens vice president and publishing director for the Americas. “Our inspectors visit all the properties to make sure that each meets the exacting standards of the Guides and in turn the expectations of our 12 million readers. The Guides help you to pick your perfect vacation – whether it is relaxing at the Horned Dorset in Puerto Rico, enjoying an exquisite romantic getaway at the historic country house hotel Blantyre, MA, or escaping to a luxury wilderness lodge like the Clayoquot Wilderness Resort in British Columbia, Canada – we make it all so easy”.
A breath‐taking photo of the Gansevoort Turks and Caicos graces the cover of the 2010 guide, and new properties for 2010 include Trump International Hotel and Tower, in New York City, Castle Hill Inn and Resort, in Rhode Island, and the Villa Rolandi and Thalasso Spa in Mexico.
The Condé Nast Johansens website, http://www.condenastjohansens.com, is also updated alongside the launch of the 2010 Guides, allowing visitors to find a hotel by zip code, town, country or – if inspiration is needed – the site will give recommendations based on criteria, such as “spa” or “gourmet food”. The site also offers late availability options, special offers and the ability to check availability.
The Guides easy‐to‐use format simplifies the independent traveler’s task of selecting and booking accommodations. Each Recommendation features rich, full color exterior and interior hotel photographs, location maps and details about facilities, rates and contact information. This year, each hotel that participates in a minimum of 3 environmentally friendly practices as specified by Condé Nast Johansens, is clearly identified with a leaf symbol. “Many of our readers want to support eco friendly hotels and the time was right to identify properties, however large or small, that are making efforts to engage in environmental practices” says Lesley O’Malley Keyes.
The 2010 Recommended Hotels, Inns, Resorts and Spas – The Americas, Atlantic, Caribbean and Pacific – and the entire Condé Nast Johansens international collection of guides will be available from mid‐November at select bookstores nationwide, including Borders and major online bookstores.
