You may have seen the National Geographic Traveler’s Stay List icon on our home page. We are very excited and honored to have been included in their list of 150 hotels. We’d be even more excited to see an actual copy of the magazine!!!
It’s true, we don’t get out much.
So, if you are among the first 5 people to visit and bring us a copy of the April issue of National Geographic Traveler magazine, we will thank you with one of our special, hand thrown ceramic Brampton mugs.
If you’re wondering what the Stay List is, here is an excerpt from the press release page of their website:
NATIONAL GEOGRAPHIC TRAVELER April 2008 THE STAY LIST: 150 HOTELS YOU WILL LOVE (PAGE 76)
According to Editor Keith Bellows, there is no greater letdown than a hotel that isn’t original and fails to exhibit any understanding of its cultural context. Hence the creation of National Geographic Traveler’s “Stay List” that celebrates 150 hotels in the United States, Canada, Mexico and the Caribbean region that are among the best at blending location-inspired architecture, ambience and amenities, eco-stewardship and an ethic of giving back to the community. Backed by extensive research, including input from local experts and seasoned travelers, in-depth questionnaires to more than 600 nominated hotels and detailed follow-up by magazine staff, the list showcases overnights that range from rustic to luxurious, dirt cheap to splurge. Yet all the featured hotels cherish a sense of place and offer a sweet night’s sleep. Organized by country, state and city, this is a list that travelers will refer to repeatedly.
