LAKE PLACID - Travel + Leisure magazine readers have selected the Mirror Lake Inn Resort and Spa and the Whiteface Lodge as two of the "Top 500 World's Best Hotels" for 2011.
The two Lake Placid hotels are among only three in New York state outside of New York City, the third being the Mirbeau Inn & Spa in Skaneateles. The results of the annual World's Best poll appear in the December issue of the magazine, which is on newsstands now.
This is the fourth year the Mirror Lake Inn has received this recognition.
In its ninth year, the survey results are derived from the 2010 World's Best Awards. Readers completed an online or magazine questionnaire and rated hotels on characteristics including rooms and facilities, location, service, restaurants and food, and value. Other categories include cities, islands, cruises, airlines, spas and business hotels.
A full list of winners in every category can be found on the magazine's website at www.travelandleisure.com.
This fall, the Mirror Lake Inn was selected by Conde Nast Traveler magazine as one of the "Top 50 Ski Hotels" in North America and as one of the "Top 100 Large Resorts in the Mainland, U.S."
