Inn by the Sea Selected in Top 50 Resorts in the U.S. in Travel & Leisure Reader’s Survey

Cape Elizabeth, Maine. July 16, 2012………Inn by the Sea, Maine’s premier beach destination, was selected one of the Top 50 Resorts in the U.S. by Travel and Leisure’s most recent  reader survey, and was the only  property in Maine selected for Travel and Leisure’s 2012 World’s Best  Hotels and Resorts Awards, announced Sara Masterson, Inn by the Sea’s General Manager.

“We are delighted to be included in Travel and Leisure’s prestigious list as one of the Top 50 Resorts in the U.S.,” stated Masterson. “This honor is a true testament to the commitment and dedication of our staff in delivering an outstanding guest experience, as well as to the natural beauty of the Inn’s setting. “

Inn by the Sea is located on a mile of sandy beach just 7 miles from the urban chic, small port city of Portland. The opening of newly constructed luxury, ocean view Beach Suites in June 2012, and a multimillion dollar renovation of the main house in 2008 added stylish ,modern amenities to the relaxed coastal charm of this eco- friendly hotel.  

Set in a location of unspoiled beauty on Crescent Beach, the luxuriously contemporary Inn by the Sea offers guests an experience that is pure Maine, from the beach, to the coastal setting to the upscale modern interiors. The 61 comfortably appointed fireplace rooms, and one and two bedroom suites, full service SPA, fireplace lounge and indigenous seaside gardens create an atmosphere of eco-luxury that is distinctly Maine.  Sea Glass dining celebrates Maine fare inside the Inn’s intimate ocean view restaurant, or al fresco on seaside decks.

Travel and Leisure’s survey rates properties on several characteristics including room, facilities, location, service, restaurant, service and overall experience. The 2012 results, including the list of the TOP 50 U.S. Resorts which includes Inn by the Sea, are featured at http://www.travelandleisure.com/worldsbest/2012/hotels/resorts-us/317   or in August 2012 Travel & Leisure issues.
