DARBY, MONTANA/U.S.A. (June 30, 2011) Virtuoso®, the industry’s leading luxury travel network, has once again reviewed its extensive roster of world’s best hotels and resorts to determine nominees for its fifth annual Virtuoso “Best of the Best” Hotel Awards. The network selected Triple Creek Ranch as a nominee for Most Innovative Guest Experience. With more than 900 choices, the competition is steep and Triple Creek Ranch is one of only 50 properties under consideration for the awards that range from “Best Family Program” to “Best Bar Experience” and the ultimate “Hotel of the Year.” Elaine Srnka, VIRTUOSO LIFE magazine’s editorial director, and Albert Herrera, Virtuoso’s vice president of hotels, destinations & tours, named the properties that serve as stand-outs within the organization and demonstrate the highest standards in their given category.
Triple Creek Ranch is already part of the organization’s esteemed Hotels & Resorts Program, a process that requires thorough vetting from Virtuoso to ensure the quality and standards meet the exacting demands of Virtuoso’s upscale clientele. Editors of VIRTUOSO LIFE magazine, the network’s award-winning publication, reviewed numerous submissions and researched hundreds of properties to select the award nominees. Now it is up to the network’s elite travel advisors to determine which hotels exemplify the 10 categories.
Virtuoso says that nominees not only represent their given categories, but also the preferences of today’s travelers. “As a Best of the Best award nominee, Triple Creek Ranch sets the standard for excellence amongst hotels around the world,” said Albert Herrera, Virtuoso vice president of hotels, destinations & tours. “The properties we selected redefine luxury by surprising and delighting their guests. They deliver exceptional experiences, while making it look effortless. Anyone associated with hospitality knows that is no simple feat. We are proud to include Triple Creek Ranch among our extraordinary list of nominees.”
Winners will be revealed on August 17, 2011, at the Hotels & Resorts dinner during Virtuoso’s 23rd annual Travel Mart Conference. Taking place at the Bellagio in Las Vegas from August 14-19, Travel Mart brings together thousands of Virtuoso’s member travel advisors – considered the leaders in creating luxury experiences – and the world’s best travel providers to participate in the industry’s preeminent networking event. VIRTUOSO LIFE magazine will feature the Best of the Best winners in its September/October 2011 issue. For more information, visit http://www.virtuosolife.com/ .
