Old Edwards gets Conde Nast accolade

The Old Edwards Hospitality Group has been selected by Condé Nast Johansens as a Recommended Hotel to be included in the publication’s 2007 Guide. The internationally acclaimed Guide to Recommended Hotels, Inns and Resorts covers the Americas, Bermuda, the Caribbean, Mexico and the Pacific. This is the third year in a row that Old Edwards Inn and Spa will be included in the publication.

“It remains an honor to be associated with Conde Nast Johansens,” said Mario Gomes, CEO and General Manager of the Old Edwards Inn and Spa. “To have been included in this prestigious group of resort properties, every year since opening, is a favorable accomplishment. The whole Old Edwards team is very proud of this esteemed association.”

The Old Edwards Inn and Spa opened in July 2004 as a luxury destination spa resort after more than $50M and two years of renovation, restoration, and expansion. Accommodations at the Old Edwards Inn consist of 32 individually designed guestrooms, suites and cottages, which have period antiques, Frette linens and the finest contemporary amenities. The 25,000 square foot Spa features an exclusive collection of the world’s finest products and an extensive menu of signature body, skin care and relaxation therapies in a luxurious European setting. Madison’s Restaurant and Wine Bar, the resort’s Wine Spectator award-wining, fine dining restaurant, offers seasonally inspired, elevated Southern cuisine and an exceptional wine list.

Condé Nast Johansens publishes its Guides for discerning travelers who seek quality service and facilities. It makes hotel recommendations based on a property’s excellence of service and cuisine as well as their unique style, diverse or exceptional location.

Lesley O’Malley-Keyes, Conde Nast Johansens Vice President and Publishing Director North America commented, “We are excited to include Old Edwards Inn and Spa in our 2007 portfolio. Our inspectors visit numerous high-end properties and select only those that meet the rigorous criteria of the Guides. Old Edwards Inn and Spa is an exemplary illustration.”
