Condè Nast Traveler 2011 Readers' Poll
Boyne Falls, Mich. (January 18, 2012) - The Mountain Grand Lodge and Spa at Boyne Mountain Resort of Boyne Falls has been named among the "Top 50 Ski Hotels" in Condé Nast Traveler's Best Places to Ski & Stay in North America. The sixteenth annual survey as voted by readers, shares the best ski experiences from the mountain resorts that are tops for terrain, speedy lifts and après ski to the hotel havens that provide the softest landings.
The results of the Condé Nast Traveler poll were derived from the annual Readers' Choice Survey with 28,876 respondents. Candidates were rated on a five-point scale - excellent, very good, good, fair or poor on a variety of criteria including rooms, service, dining/food, location, overall design and activities/facilities. Criterion scores representing the percentage of respondents rating a hotel excellent or very good were averaged to determine the overall score. Only hotels that received a required minimum number of responses were eligible for inclusion in the rankings.
"It is an honor to be associated with this list and represent the Midwest," said Roy Haworth, resort accommodations manager for Boyne Mountain Resort. "We're very proud to offer guests premier accommodations, a wide range of amenities and attentive service that creates memorable winter vacations."
