Bardessono Named 2014 Winner of Best Eco Hotel by Conde Nast Johansens

YOUNTVILLE, CA--(Marketwired - Feb 21, 2014) - Condé Nast Johansens chose Bardessono Hotel and Spa as the Best Eco Hotel of 2014 in the USA, Canada and Mexico. Bardessono also received this award in 2013.

The Condé Nast Johansens Awards are created to acknowledge, reward and celebrate excellence across our recommended properties; our world-renowned Awards for Excellence are a trusted mark of quality recognized by consumers and travel professionals alike.

Condé Nast Johansens remains the most comprehensive digital and print reference to annually inspected, independently owned hotels. With dedicated and highly trained Local Experts, almost ten times as many properties have been assessed as appear in the Guides in order to narrow the final selection down to, quite simply, the best selection of accommodation for independent travelers.

"We're extremely proud of this wonderful recognition. Our vision when developing Bardessono in 2006-2009 was two-fold: to be ranked among the top luxury hotels in the world and to also be the 'greenest,' by being the second hotel in the US to achieve the U.S. Green Building Counsel's highest certification -- LEED Platinum. This award from CNJ validates the current reality of our development vision. Thank you CNJ and thank you to all our employees and development partners," said general manager Jim Treadway.

This award further asserts Bardessono's unparalleled commitment to providing a luxurious experience within an eco-friendly environment to every traveler.
