137 Pillars House Chiang Mai debuted in the highly coveted Travel + Leisure (USA) Magazine’s 2012 It List of the 50 best new hotels, as selected by T+L editors. The seventh annual It List, covering 29 countries, including nine properties in the U.S. and Canada, is featured on www.TravelandLeisure.com now, and in the June issue of Travel + Leisure, available on newsstands May 18.  

 The list is composed of six categories: City, Rustic, Design, Resort, Beach, and Renovation, and includes brand-new properties as well as a handful of hotels that underwent renovations in the last year.

Nancy Novogrod, editor in chief of Travel + Leisure said, “With more than 3,000 hotel openings in the last year, selecting the properties for our 2012 It List was a particularly demanding assignment.  After close consideration, the 50 hotels and resorts our editors arrived at not only throw a spotlight on notable up-and-coming destinations, but also highlight some long-time favorites with dazzling new places to stay.”
