Pan Pacific may be small, but this Singapore-based hotel company is making a powerful impact with each of its four North America properties which have all been listed, once again, on Conde Nast Traveler`s elite Gold List.
With only four properties in North America, Pan Pacific`s Vancouver Hotel and Whistler Lodge ranked number three and four in all of Canada with ratings of 81.3 and 80.9, respectively. The Pan Pacific San Francisco, the company`s only Continental U.S. property, received a 74.4 rating while the Big Island`s Mauna Lani Bay Hotel & Bungalows received a rating of 84.8.
As per Conde Nast Traveler, one of North America`s most respected consumer travel publications, “The standards are high, the group select: For the seventh annual Gold List, Condé Nast Traveler readers have chosen the crème de la crème of travel today. For the best of the best, look no further than this ultimate word of mouth for discriminating travelers.” Approximately 26,000 readers vote in the annual poll from which Conde Nast Traveler culls the highest rated hotels from around the world to create the Gold List. To qualify for the Gold List, properties had to receive a minimum of responses. In order to uncover a property`s special nuances, the Conde Nast editorial team asked readers for first-hand experiences to personalize the poll findings.
Pan Pacific continues to enjoy a tremendous presence in several industry polls. The company is know for exemplary service and luxurious accommodations while maintaining value and price structures which are now more appealing than ever to discerning guests and conscientious consumers.
Here`s what some of Conde Nast Traveler`s readers had to say about:
The Pan Pacific Vancouver - “As good as it gets in Vancouver.” This “dramatically designed” hotel has “the perfect downtown location” - “convenient to everything” and “with magnificent harbor vistas.”
The Pan Pacific Lodge Whistler - “Ideal for families,” suites come with kitchens, “wood-burning fireplaces,” and bathrooms with “big soaking tubs.” Near the gondolas for Blackcomb and Whistler mountains, so “it`s easy for skiers to come and go.” “Excellent staff keeps the place running like clockwork.”
The Pan Pacific San Francisco - “What a location!” - only one block from Union Square. Interiors exude “an attractive East-meets-West ambience.” “Comparatively large rooms” have “spacious bathrooms” with “deep soaking tubs.” Butler service leaves an impression: “Ring the bell and someone shows up within minutes.”
