Robb Report Editors Select World's Most Exclusive Luxury Hotels In Special Annual Issue

MALIBU, CA –The international luxury world’s most exceptional urban escapes have been selected for the premiere issue of Robb Report Luxury Hotels, a special annual publication from the editors of Robb Report magazine.


Scheduled to hit newsstands on September 5, Robb Report Luxury Hotels is the essential source for city travelers for whom price is no object.  The magazine offers first-hand accounts of exclusive properties from around the world, all meeting or exceeding the highest standards for service, setting, architecture and amenities.

“The publication of Robb Report Luxury Hotels culminates a yearlong effort by our editorial staff members, who identified the best properties in each of nearly 100 cities worldwide,” explains Editor Bruce Wallin.

Spanning 42 countries on six continents, the collection of exclusive properties showcased in Robb Report Luxury Hotels ranges from historic grand dames in Europe to contemporary boutiques in Asia.  But each hotel, according to Mr. Wallin, shares at least one common trait: the ability to convey the absolute best of its respective city.

 “In addition to exceptional locations, these hotels have staffs that are not only highly focused on guest service, but are also thoroughly knowledgeable about everything that makes their city great,” Mr. Wallin says.  “First-rate accommodations, amenities and facilities are a given.”

In selecting only one property for a given city, the editorial staff focused on determining “which property represented the ultimate address for the luxury traveler,” according to Mr. Wallin.  “Our objective is to simplify the selection process for the Robb Report reader who is traveling to a city and wants to stay in the absolutely best hotel.”

Publication of Robb Report Luxury Hotels comes only four months after the launch of Robb Report Luxury Resorts, an annual issue that offered first-hand accounts of the world’s 100 most exclusive destination resorts.
