Ranking achieved

LAKE PLACID — Readers of Conde Nast Traveler magazine, a bellwether of opinion in luxury travel, have rated Mirror Lake Inn Resort and Spa in Lake Placid among the best properties in the world by virtue of its inclusion in the publication’s Gold List for 2014.

Among more than 500 luxury properties to make the list, Mirror Lake Inn was ranked in the top 50 overall based on its score of 93.8 percent. Within the Gold List, Mirror Lake Inn was rated number one among the 15 deluxe hotels on the New York State list.

This marks the second consecutive year that the inn has achieved such distinction; it has appeared on the list on numerous occasions. Approximately 80,000 Conde Nast Traveler respondents ranked the hotel in the categories of rooms, service, food, design, location and activities.

Conde Nast Traveler readers also distinguished the AAA Four Diamond resort, overlooking Mirror Lake, in November 2013 as tops in the Northeast and the fifth best ski hotel in North America (best in eastern North America).

“Having Conde Nast’s readers consider us in this manner is a reflection of our emphasis on guest service,” said Mirror Lake Inn owner Ed Weibrecht. “And as we look at this closer it’s indicative of the effort of every staff member here. The Inn receives high marks thanks to its employees, and from my viewpoint, they are at the head of the class.”
