LAKE PLACID - Mirror Lake Inn Resort and Spa has once again been noted by the readers of Conde Nast Traveler as one of the best in the world, this time being named to the prestigious Gold List for 2013. Mirror Lake Inn also holds the coveted honor of being the longest AAA Four-Diamond property in New York outside of New York City, for 28 consecutive years.
According to Conde Nast Traveler, Mirror Lake Inn, located in Lake Placid and nestled in the Adirondack Mountains, is one of the "510 Best Places on Earth." These "Best Places" appear in the January 2013 issue of the magazine.
Conde Nast Traveler's annual Gold List identifies the best of the best: the gold standard of luxury travel. Every entry on this list has been rigorously tested and screened by the publication's readers. Nearly 47,000 of the world's most discerning travelers (a record setting number) produced a final selection of the very best places in the world, by participating in the annual Readers' Choice Survey.
"Number one resort in the Northeast, first among ski hotels in the Northeast, sixth rated ski hotel in North America, and now the Conde Nast Traveler Gold List," said hotel owner Ed Weibrecht. "For us, that's like hitting a grand slam. It doesn't get any better in the hospitality industry. Once again, our staff, many of them with tremendous longevity here, can take credit for this. These awards can be attributed to their dedication to our mission. These ratings continue to humble me, but our staffs' efforts make me very proud."
Closer inspection of the Gold List designation shows that the Lake Placid property, with an overall score of 94 out of 100, rated on the heels of The Peninsula and Trump International, both in New York City. Furthermore, as the best of New York State, Mirror Lake Inn placed ahead of any New York property located outside of New York City.
