Condé Nast Traveler Magazine Ranks Woodmark Hotel One of the Top Properties in the World

Seattle-area hotel honored in 2013 Reader’s Choice Awards

KIRKLAND, Wash. (November 27, 2013) – Visitors to The Woodmark Hotel & Spa have voted the property as one of the best in the world in the annual Condé Nast Traveler Readers’ Choice Awards. The only hotel on the picturesque shores of Lake Washington, this urban getaway is minutes from downtown Bellevue, Redmond & Seattle, making it the perfect place to escape for a weekend, or even just for dinner.

Bringing together a host of luxury amenities, The Woodmark offers everything from local – fresh dining experiences to relaxing spa treatments. The hotel kicked off 2013 with a luxury renovation to the lobby and library, as well as their Marina & Bayshore meeting rooms. With a contemporary design that features marble floors, sumptuous furnishings, stunning light fixtures and a color palette that perfectly sets off the water views, the space is welcoming and friendly for guests.

This year’s Awards saw a record number of votes, with almost 80,000 readers participating, close to double the responses from 2012. Condé Nast noted that readers praise quality where it thrives, designating The Woodmark as one of the World’s best.

“We are honored and blessed to be recognized among one of the best properties in the world, and even more fulfilled in knowing it is solely based on the voices of our valued guests,” notes Howard Jacobs, general manager of the Woodmark Hotel & Spa. “We are incredibly proud of our dedicated team and strive to provide every guest with a personal experience that differentiates us from all the others.”

There’s a distinct advantage to being close to everything, but far from the everyday, and that’s where The Woodmark has found its stride. With unsurpassed views of Seattle and the Olympic Mountains, they welcome each guest with an uncommon blend of inspired personalized service, luxury lifestyle amenities and a serene lakeside setting.

The property features 100 expertly crafted guestrooms and suites, rejuvenating spa treatments at Northwest Face Spa and delectable culinary offerings at two on-property lakeside dining venues – bin on the lake and Beach Café.  For those with a more active agenda, The Woodmark offers a host of activities from paddle boarding and kayaking to on-site customized fitness programs with their Director of Adrenaline.
