KIRKLAND, WA, Dec. 27, 2013 /CNW/ - For the second time in as many months, The Woodmark Hotel & Spa has been ranked as one of the best hotels in the world in Travel + Leisure Magazine.

The Travel + Leisure 'World's Best' list is based on a comprehensive reader survey that rates each property on their facilities, location, service and culinary fare. As one of only three hotels in Washington to make the list, The Woodmark offers exclusive waterfront views and is well known for its personalized guest experience, array of amenities and fitness activities, and fresh local dining at bin on the lake and Beach Cafe.

"It is incredibly humbling to have the voice of our valued Woodmark guests' evolve into a Best in the World designation," notes Howard Jacobs, general manager of The Woodmark Hotel & Spa. "Our team of dedicated associates bring their passion and commitment for our guests each and every day and we couldn't be more proud of their efforts."

Touted as a popular urban property, the hotel's focus on unique touches that improve the comfort of each guest was a key component in both awards. Whether it's complimentary late night snacks, in-room martini bar, or cruising Lake Washington on board Woodmark II, it's clear that guests of The Woodmark love the broad array of offerings.

In November, The Woodmark Hotel & Spa was voted one of the best properties in the world in the annual Condé Nast Traveler Readers' Choice Awards for the second year in a row, with almost 80,000 votes cast.

Bringing together a host of fitness activities and amenities, The Woodmark Hotel welcomes each guest with an uncommon blend of inspired personalized service and a serene lakeside setting just minutes from Seattle, Redmond and Bellevue.

The property features 100 expertly crafted guestrooms and suites, rejuvenating spa treatments at Northwest Face Spa and delectable culinary offerings at two on-property waterfront dining venues - bin on the lake and Beach Café.  For those with a more active agenda, The Woodmark offers a variety of activities from paddle boarding and kayaking to on-site customized fitness programs with their Director of Adrenaline.
