Five New York State hotels were selected for Conde Nast Traveler Reader’s Choice Awards in the “Top 20 Resorts in the Northeast” category. The annual awards are selected by the publication’s readers who choose the best in an array of categories including the best hotels, islands, cities, cruises, and airlines.

New York State’s winners of the Reader’s Choice Awards are:

· Mirror Lake Inn Resort and Spa, Lake Placid, The Adirondacks
· Lake Placid Lodge, Lake Placid, The Adirondacks
· Mohonk Mountain House, New Paltz, The Catskills
· Whiteface Lodge, Lake Placid, The Adirondacks
· The Sagamore, Lake George, The Adirondacks

“This year’s Conde Nast Traveler Reader’s Choice Awards show that avid travelers are choosing Upstate New York as a top destination to stay and vacation,” Governor Andrew Cuomo said in congratulating the five hotels.

“This recognition of the world-class accommodations in the Adirondacks and the Catskills is well deserved, and it will help further the momentum we are generating in the state’s tourism industry. We want visitors to come to New York and experience all of what we have to offer. So pack your bags, book a room at one of our outstanding hotels and explore the Empire State.”

With 11 different vacation regions, New York State offers visitors and residents an abundance of activities and sights to see as well as new experiences. From quirky attractions, quaint towns, historic sites and beautiful beaches to a plethora of outdoor activities, year-round festivals and major events, the Empire State is the destination for all things travel.

Since taking office, Governor Cuomo has put in place a series of initiatives to bolster statewide tourism, including launching new marketing and advertising campaigns to showcase New York State’s many assets and attractions. As the fifth largest employment sector in New York, tourism supported 714,222 jobs and generated $17.39 billion in wages in 2012. In 2011 alone, the Empire State hosted 202 million total visitors, an 8.3 percent increase from the year before, and 76.2 million overnight visitors.

To build on these successes and continue to boost tourism and create jobs, the Governor also recently announced several new initiatives to spotlight the State’s natural beauty and recreational opportunities and to attract visitors to upstate New York, as well as Market NY and Taste NY to promote “made in New York” products.
