Daniel Hostettler, President and Group Managing Director, Ocean House / Weekapaug Inn / Watch Hill Inn, Rhode Island; Blantyre, Massachusetts
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.
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.
Heidi Mitchell, Special Correspondent for Travel + Leisure, columnist for the Wall Street Journal, freelance writer for numerous outlets
I have worked with LDPR for more than a decade, and have forged personal bonds with many of the staff so I inherently trust what they tell me – they pitch directly to me and my interests and outlets, and don’t try to fit a square peg into a round hole. Every pitch is tailored and every time I email or call, I get a voice on the other end that I recognize well. As a result, LDPR is one of my first stops when I’m cooking up a story, though often those story ideas come from LDPR themselves. For a writer/editor juggling many outlets and projects, their understanding of my needs (and consideration for my time) is invaluable.
Ellen Asmodeo, EVP/Chief Revenue Officer, AFAR Media
I have known Laura Davidson and worked with her team at LDPR for more than 15 years. They are the best — smart, creative, collaborative and dedicated — and they really get AFAR and what our team needs from an integrated editorial/marketing perspective. They are unique in their ability to understand their clients’ objectives and how to create smart marketing programs that include more than is expected from a typical PR firm.
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!
