Bardessono, Villas of Grand Cypress & Willows Lodge All Honored with Condé Nast Traveler's 2013 Readers' Choice Awards

The Woodlands (Houston), Texas, November 2013 … Benchmark Hospitality International®, a leading U.S.-based hospitality management company, has announced that four of its Personal Luxury Resorts & Hotels® properties have achieved the 2013 Condé Nast Traveler Readers' Choice Awards list.  The coveted Readers' Choice list is one of the most prestigious consumer awards within the U.S. travel industry.  The Readers' Choice Awards list is released annually in the November issue of Condé Nast Traveler magazine.  The Personal Luxury properties on the list include Bardessono in Napa Valley, Hotel 1000 in Seattle, Willows Lodge in Woodinville and The Villas of Grand Cypress in Orlando.

"This is a significant honor for us," said James Simkins, chief operating officer for  Personal Luxury Resorts & Hotels.  "To be so recognized by readers of one of the nation's most important consumer luxury travel magazines is wonderful for our people and properties, and helps us know we are providing a most memorable experience to our guests, which is always our goal.  We're very appreciative of this recognition."

Personal Luxury Resorts & Hotels on the 2013 Condé Nast Traveler Readers' Choice Awards List

Bardessono - #6 of the Top 25 Hotels in Northern California list

Hotel 1000 - #3 of the Top 20 Hotels in the Pacific Northwest list

Villas of Grand Cypress - #23 of the Top 40 Resorts in Florida list 

Willows Lodge - #2 of the Top 10 Resorts in the Pacific Northwest list 

Hotels and resorts that achieved placement on the Conde Nast Traveler Readers' Choice Awards list were determined by the casting of 1.3 million votes from 80,000 participants in the magazine's annual Readers' Choice Awards survey. The list reflects the combined opinions of Condé Nast Traveler readers, rating the hotels, cities, and islands they visited in the past year.  According to the magazine, luxury creates discriminating critics.  Luxury also seduces with readers praising quality where it thrives, and finding it where it emerges.  The 2013 Condé Nast Traveler Readers' Choice Awards list is a tangible reflection of this.
