WASHINGTON, Oct. 14 /PRNewswire/ -- Poshbrood, Noun:  A chic and swanky social crew typically consisting of one or two parents and their young.

Poshbrood announced today the launch of its dynamic website featuring a vetted list of luxury and hip family resorts, hotels, villas and cottages.  The Poshbrood reviews are penned by hand-selected "parent traveler" contributors and include hip moms, media elite, and potentially even (shhhh) celebrities. Each Posh Pick will be thoroughly examined and the site will allow users to search for recommendations based on a series of criteria, including price, location, and type of property.  Weekly updates served up to the Poshbrood community will include features like celebrity family interviews, travel tips, and breaking news on sales, new destinations, and must-have travel gear.

Poshbrood is the brainchild of Elizabeth Thorp, veteran travel writer and globetrotting mom of three young children.  Thorp says, "While researching luxury family travel for a story last winter, I realized there was a dearth of resources recommending upscale travel options for parents." She decided to use the treasure trove of tips on fantastic family hotels, resorts and villas she had amassed while researching stories for, Washingtonian, and Niche Media's Capitol File Magazine to fill the gap. "Poshbrood combines the style of Daily Candy with the insider's knowledge of BlackBook and the irreverence of No Reservations. I'm so excited to share our picks and to continue to build our catalogue," added Thorp.

Poshbrood has researched, identified, visited, and screened chic and luxurious travel options for busy families. Visitors who register for the Poshbrood newsletters before October 29th will be eligible to win one of four stays at featured properties including: a luxury four bedroom villa, Noble House on the Beach in Montego Bay from Jamaica by Villas by Linda Smith, a deluxe suite at the slick Trump Soho, and suites at Kimpton Hotel's Hotel Palomar DC and Hotel Marlowe in Boston.
