Grand View Lodge Named #6 Top Resort
GRAND VIEW LODGE NAMED #6 TOP RESORT HOTEL IN THE MIDWEST ON THE COVETED “WORLD’S BEST AWARDS 2020” BY TRAVEL + LEISURE MAGAZINE
Grand View Lodge, Spa and Golf Resort is recognized today as one of the top resorts globally in the annual “World’s Best Awards 2020” by Travel + Leisure magazine.
The resort ranked #6 in “The Top 10 Resort Hotels in the Midwest” with an overall score of 86.46. Grand View Lodge is the only Minnesota property to make this esteemed list. This recognition marks the resort’s debut on the industry awards list, which celebrates the world’s best hotels, resorts, destinations, airlines, cruise lines, and more.
To determine winners of this highly coveted industry accolade, Travel + Leisure readers rated hotels on the following characteristics: rooms/facilities, location, service, food and value.
While Grand View Lodge is a historic property, having served guests for more than 100 years, 2019 marked a new era when the iconic resort debuted a 60-room boutique hotel, North, as part of a $50M expansion that also included NorthPark, a new indoor-outdoor rec center, an intimate chapel, several new real estate developments, and more.
“To be recognized by the discerning readers of Travel + Leisure on the heels of debuting North and other significant property enhancements means so much to us,” said Mark Ronnei, general manager of Grand View Lodge. “We’re committed to continuing to evolve this beloved resort while paying homage to our history and roots in the Brainerd Lakes area. We also owe extreme gratitude to our dedicated staff who work year-round to provide the best experience possible for our valued guests.”
The World’s Best Awards will be published in the August 2020 issue of Travel + Leisure. The full list is published exclusively online at www.travelandleisure.com/worldsbest.
