Maybe it’s time to build another trophy case.
The Ritz-Carlton, Dove Mountain in Marana has added another honor. The resort has again been named to Conde Nast Traveler magazine’s Gold List of the best places to stay in the world. We’ve lost track of the number of international awards the property has won since it opened in December 2009 but there aren’t many significant honors the resort hasn’t earned in the past four years.
The Gold List included only five other properties in Arizona, none of which are in the southeast part of the state. It’s the 19th time the magazine has given the honors, which are based on reader responses. This year, 511 hotels, resorts and cruise lines made the cut and almost 80,000 readers cast votes.
