GLENEDEN BEACH, Ore. – Jan. 17, 2017 – Steven Hurst, general manager of Salishan Spa and Golf Resort, managed by Crescent Hotels & Resorts, recently announced that the property has been recognized by the readers of Condé Nast Traveler as one of the best in the United States. More than 300,000 readers of the travel magazine participated in annual Readers’ Choice survey. Salishan was noted as the No. 3 Top Resort in Alaska and The Pacific Northwest.

“This award is often referred to as ‘the best of the best’ in travel,” said Hurst. “It’s a real honor to have subscribers and past guests acknowledge Salishan for its service and facilities. With a recent renovation and efforts to reinvent the property in the coming months, we believe the guest experience is only going to get better.”

The Condé Nast Traveler Readers’ Choice Awards are the longest-running and one of the most prestigious recognition of excellence in the travel industry. Under Editor in Chief Pilar Guzmán, the Readers’ Choice Awards have become more selective and specific to the passions that inspire today’s travelers. More than 7,394 hotels, 606 cities, 500 cruise ships, and 236 islands were included in this year’s survey. The top 1,402 travel experiences across the globe ultimately rose to the top.

Salishan Spa and Golf Resort is a 205-room resort conveniently located just two hours outside of Portland, on the Oregon Coast.
