This latest accolade, announced today as part of U.S. News & World Report's 2014 Best Hotels Awards, names Woodmark as one of Washington State's top properties.

"This honor is especially meaningful since these rankings are based on opinions from both hotel guests and travel experts," said Howard Jacobs, general manager of Woodmark Hotel. "I couldn't be more proud of our dedicated team for their unwavering commitment to world class service, and our ownership who continue to invest in our property with the newest guest rooms among East Seattle Hotels."

Woodmark has earned the admiration of guests and industry experts alike by focusing on unique touches that make the property an exciting getaway and a comfortable home away from home. "Guest favorites include the new world class Napa Black Label sleep experience, complimentary late night snacks, called 'Raid the Pantry' alongside the in-room martini bar," adds Jacobs.

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

In November, Woodmark 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. Just a few weeks later, the property landed on Travel + Leisure Magazine's Top 500 World's Best list, which is based on a comprehensive reader survey that rates each property on their facilities, location, service and culinary fare. Woodmark was one of only three hotels in Washington to make this coveted list.

The property features 100 expertly crafted guestrooms and suites, rejuvenating spa treatments 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, Woodmark offers a variety of activities from paddle boarding and kayaking to on-site customized fitness programs with their Director of Adrenaline.

The hotel kicked off the New Year with an exquisite guest room renovation that is now complete. Its contemporary design, featuring marble floors, luxurious furnishings and stunning light fixtures, complement a color palette that perfectly sets off water views across Lake Washington.

Woodmark is the only hotel in East Seattle to offer the brand new Napa Black Label mattresses.  Moreover, it offers a unique "Pillow Talk Menu" where guests can chose to sleep on Buckwheat, Lavender, Memory Foam or allergy-free pillows based on their personal sleep styles and preferences. Adding on brand new lux bedding, linens and fresh modern artwork and imagery, Woodmark now offers guests a chance to be the first to experience VIP service at its best, alongside the kind of restful sleep that people only dream of. For more information about Woodmark and to make reservations, call 425-822-3700, visit www.thewoodmark.com, follow us on Twitter: @WoodmarkHotel or like us on Facebook: WoodmarkHotel.
