Daniel Hostettler, President and Group Managing Director, Ocean House / Weekapaug Inn / Watch Hill Inn, Rhode Island and Spicer Mansion, Connecticut
We have worked with LDPR for several years and not only do I find them extremely committed to our three hotels but also a delight to work with. Their PR smarts and established media contacts have played an important role in generating outstanding press coverage, including the cover of Condé Nast Traveler, and ensuring the properties are highlighted in influential magazine rankings. Every time they deliver we raise the bar, and every time we raise the bar they manage to deliver. I cannot recommend them highly enough to any luxury hotel looking for worldclass public relations representation.
Pamela Lassers, Director, Media Relations, Abercrombie & Kent
Our goal in using LDPR as our New York-based national PR agency was to expand our reach and frequency in luxury lifestyle media and launch our new product lines. Impressions in the past two years tripled with placements in The New York Times, Departures, Travel + Leisure, National Geographic Adventure, Elite Traveler, Men’s Journal, Vogue, InStyle and emerging social media such as Globarati, Gadling and Paradizo.
Megan Marchesini Napier, Director, Public Relations, Atlantis, Paradise Island
Having worked with LDPR for several years, I consider them true partners and an extension of my team. They are extremely proactive in their pitching efforts, committed, strategic and have very strong working media relationships. They do tremendous work, consistently delivering high-level coverage. I would recommend LDPR to anyone looking for a strong, smart and media savvy travel PR agency.
Rob Sherman, Managing Director, Curtain Bluff Resort, Antigua
LDPR has contributed greatly to my resort’s success and high occupancy rates, and helped us rank in the top 10 resorts in the Caribbean in both Condé Nast Traveler and Travel + Leisure magazines. Their creative marketing strategies go far beyond the boundaries of pure PR, and they have been a valuable extension of my management team for over a decade.
Anna Nash, Head of Global Public Relations, AMAN
The speed, enthusiasm, creativity and attention to detail that LDPR puts into everything they do is evidenced in the amount and quality of press coverage generated for our Aman properties. Their network of contacts is vast and they have a very positive and reliable reputation within the industry. They are very much an extension of my in-house team and a joy to work with.
Gay Nagle Myers, Senior Editor/Caribbean Editor, Travel Weekly
Working with LDPR makes my job as a writer and editor a lot easier and a lot more fun. My queries, phone calls and e-mails are promptly answered, and the press trips are right on the mark. LDPR’s clients are top of the line and reflect the caliber of the agency.
Peter Greenberg, Travel Editor, CBS This Morning
Working with LDPR has been a professional pleasure. They not only understand their clients and what makes a good story, but perhaps most important, they understand the media. What do journalists most want from PR agencies? Access to accurate information in a timely way. Something Laura Davidson Public Relations consistently delivers. Not only are LDPR account reps deadline-sensitive, they’re uniformly helpful and proactive on behalf of their clients.
Richard Martin, Editorial Director, Food Republic
It’s not so cut and dry as an editor getting a pitch…it’s more of a conversation that develops with LDPR and it eventually leads to all kinds of great coverage because it is not as forced as other relationships. They’re trained better than most PR professionals are, and it just shows in every element, from their original pitch, to traveling with them and getting the real experience of the resort.
Carol Cain, Blogger, Girl Gone Travel
I just love working with the LDPR team. They are very professional, and they’re friendly. They’re open to a lot of the ideas that I pitch them, and they know me enough to send me stories that they know I would be interested in.
Eileen Ogintz, Syndicated Columnist, Taking the Kids
I can always count on Laura Davidson and her team to be in the know about the latest travel trends. I can count on them to get back to me quickly with information I need for my syndicated column and website. They make my job easier!
