Date: Saturday, 18 October 2008 The readers of Condé Nast Traveler have named ‘41‘ in the Best 30 Hotels in the British Isles category in the magazine‘s 21st Annual Readers‘ Choice Awards. The awards are derived from the Condé Nast Traveler Readers’ Choice Survey, the largest independent poll of consumers’ preferences. Over 32,000 readers voted this year. Situated on Buckingham Palace Road, a stone’s throw from the palace and opposite the Royal Mews (where the Queens horses and carriages are stabled), ‘41’ is part of the Red Carnation Hotels collection, which includes other properties in London, as well as Dorset, Guernsey, Geneva, Palm Beach and South Africa, ‘41’ offers 30 individually designed guest suites, no two alike but all stylishly designed with a black and white theme and many with working fireplaces. Another Red Carnation London property, The Milestone in Kensington, took the Number One position as Best Hotel in the British Isles in the same survey. “These awards celebrate the destinations, lodgings, and modes of transportation that manage to exceed our expectations,” said Condé Nast Traveler Editor in Chief Klara Glowczewska. “The Readers’ Choice Awards, with over 32,000 readers voting, are a credit to the worldly expertise of our readers—passionate travelers for whom no island is too remote, no city too challenging, and no hotel too untested.” The complete results of the awards can be found in the November issue of Condé Nast Traveler, on newsstands October 21st or on the magazine’s website at cntraveler.com. The Readers Choice Awards gala took place on Wednesday, October 15th in New York City at the New York Public Library. Photos and video from the event are available upon request.
