Forbes Travel Guide’s 2019 World’s Best Rooms awards Bernardus Lodge & Spa a place on its verified list of 41 hotel properties. Located in California’s wine country, this Carmel Valley property joins the list that showcases hotels from 17 different countries. The lodge’s perfect score for guest rooms and bathroom standards was assessed using Forbes Travel Guide’s high standards for luxury, comfort and convenience.

Resting on 28 acres of vineyard, the lodge offers a range of lifestyle accommodations. From 525 to 2,100 square feet, including villas and suites, Bernardus provides an abode for every guest. Features such as vaulted ceilings, double-sided fireplaces, complimentary wine bar and private patios and terraces with views of the Santa Lucia Mountains prove its hospitable excellence.

Chef Cal Stamenov provides a fine dining experience at the lodge’s sleek restaurant. Apart from the California-Mediterranean fare, tennis, bocce and croquet courts, two pools, an adults-only Jacuzzi, the apiary program and a 5,300-square-foot spa grant guests with a luxurious Carmel Valley vacation.

The Bernardus Lodge & Spa was honored as one of the best rooms out of a selection of nearly 1,700 hotels. "This is an incredible honor, one that speaks to our philosophy and passion as well as recognizing our hardworking staff," says Sean Damery, vice president and general manager of Bernardus Lodge & Spa.

After several months of renovations, the DoubleTree by Hilton Philadelphia-Valley Forge is now open as the Alloy – King of Prussia, a DoubleTree by Hilton.

 

After almost 20 years of vacancy, the Cook County Hospital in Chicago will be put to use once again. A $150 million adaptive reuse project restored the historic, 106-year-old hospital, which has become a combined Hyatt Place and Hyatt House hotel, as well as medical offices, a museum, a food hall and more. While the opening is multi-phased, the hotels are scheduled to open in late July.  

 

Doctors, nurses, grocery store employees and more were essential to sustaining the continued stay-at-home orders that helped fight the spread of COVID-19. Such workers put their health at risk for the benefit of society, and Nakoma Resort and the Lost Sierra Chamber of Commerce want to recognize them for their efforts through the “Send Your Heroes” campaign.
