“We’re thrilled that so many of our properties in The Palm Beaches were recognized within their respective categories in the prestigious Condé Nast Traveler’s Readers’ Choice Awards for 2016,” said Rich Basen, senior vice president of marketing and leisure sales for Discover The Palm Beaches, the county’s official tourism marketing organization. “This area has some of the world’s best resorts and hotels, because we offer unique, best-in-class experiences for travelers seeking the ultimate in luxury.”
