For the sixth year in a row, Woodloch Pines in Hawley, Pa., has been named one of the best hotels for families by TripAdvisor. It ranks 17th in the United States, according to their annual Travelers’ Choice Awards. Their sister property, The Lodge at Woodloch, was listed the 22nd best hotel in America.

“We are thrilled to be honored by the TripAdvisor community again this year. It is humbling to see our resort that has been in my family for nearly 60 years, among so many amazing properties and national brands,” said John Kiesendahl, CEO and President of Woodloch Pines. “And to be included in the top three on this list for the past six years in a row, I can't express the gratitude and emotions I feel.”

TripAdvisor is the world’s largest online travel community and the site is home to millions of travelers’ reviews. Award winners are selected through an algorithm that factors in both the quantity and quality of the reviews over a 12-month period. Based off this, the award places Woodloch Pines Resort and The Lodge at Woodloch in the top one percent of hotels around the world.

Remote working has become mainstream with the continued presence of COVID-19. While many people have welcomed the new normal of working from home, others miss the separation of spaces, as many corporate offices have remained closed since March. Without the daily obligation to go into the office, professionals have the ability to travel more freely. Hotels across the country are creating “work from hotel” deals–a play on “work from home”–so people can explore new places while still fitting in their 9 to 5.  

 

After several months of renovations, the DoubleTree by Hilton Philadelphia-Valley Forge is now open as the Alloy – King of Prussia, a DoubleTree by Hilton.

 

Due to COVID-19, non-essential travel was, or has been, banned for months. Long anticipated trips and in-person gatherings were canceled and people have adjusted to the new normal: staying at home and meeting over Zoom. However, states have been slowly lifting restrictions, and non-essential travel will soon be happening across the country again. However, some may not be as comfortable with the thought of traveling as they were before the pandemic.
