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.

Daily life has been significantly altered by COVID-19, no matter the industry. Many are working from home, while children stay inside for online schooling. Meetings and events have been hit especially hard, since the essence of the industry is face-to-face interactions. While we continue to self-isolate, plenty of organizations have been offering webinars with insights on how to handle the pandemic—watching webinars is a great way to use that extra time you might have used for your commute to learn something useful.

 

As the spread of the novel coronavirus continues to put immense pressure on the U.S. health care system and the people who keep it running, the American Hotel and Lodging Association is working to connect hotels with health workers who are struggling to find housing.

 

With the onset of the coronavirus pandemic, most people are working from home. Many are social distancing or quarantining with their children, who have transitioned to online classes. Restaurants, bars, coffee shops, offices, stores and so much more have been temporarily shut down in many states, affecting daily life in the most unexpected of ways.
