650+ member hotels in 85 countries

Preferred Hotels & Resorts requires that each of its 650+ member hotels in 85 countries (divided into five categories) conform to the Preferred Standards of Excellence measured yearly by anonymous on-site inspections carried out by professional third-party experts. 650+ may sound like a lot of hotels (not to mention the category thing), but don’t worry about which category of property you need. Instead, just contact Jennifer Collins at jcollins@preferredhotels.com and she will figure it all out for you. And of course, you can visit https://preferredhotels.com

Donna Cohen

I have decades of experience creating and producing online marketing. I left the corporate world to work independently with people who need help establishing and maintaining their online presence. Not everyone knows how, has the aptitude, or time to learn how to use online marketing tools, and nor should they have to try. Those people who need help and/or don't want an in-house marketing team work with me. Each client has different needs, goals and expectations. I do custom work for each of my clients. I get to know each person and know their voice, their style, rhythm and budget. 

I have a large skill set that covers the range of tasks for online marketing. It is both easy and cost efficient to work directly with me. I can get the whole job done.

31-Room Luxury Boutique Hotel Owned By A Successful Gallery Owner, Each Room Features Original Work - Buenos Aires, Argentina


El Cassco Art Hotel

This will make me sound way cooler than I am, but when I was in Bariloche, Argentina (you know, up in the Lake District on the shores of Lake Nahuel Huapi), I stayed in this 31-room luxury boutique hotel owned by a successful gallery owner from Buenos Aires., Each room features original works by 31 artists so guests can enjoy their own mini-gallery with an incredible lake view. All-in-all, there are over 500 pieces of original art and sculpture scattered in and around the property, including their award-winning restaurant.

It was a great trip (not to mention riding horses across the Pampas with the Andes Mountains as a backdrop), and I came away with both a greater appreciation for modern art, and a desire to go back. 

Great for a board retreat or small incentive, check it out at http://www.hotelelcasco.com/en/

436-Room Hotel, A Privileged Position On A Beautiful Stretch Of Beach With Over 20,000 Sq Ft Of Meeting Space, Including An 8,500 Sq. Ft. Ballroom – Rio de Janiero

The Grand Hyatt Rio de Janeiro. The 436-room hotel occupies a privileged position on a beautiful stretch of beach in the heart of the “prestigious and exclusive” Barra da Tijuca neighborhood (translation… the rich people live there) and so you can retreat in style from the craziness that is Rio. Not necessarily too crazy, but crazy enough…and that’s why we go. With over 20,000 sq. ft. of meeting space, including an 8,500 sq. ft. ballroom, the property can handle meetings of up to around 300 classroom style (or almost double that for a banquet).

Galeão International airport is approximately a 50-minute drive (and when the PR department says approximately… ha ha).
