Travel + Leisure have a global team of editors and reporters that culled together the 500 highest rated hotels in the world. An impressive total of twenty-one hotels from across Canada made the list with the Post ranked first overall. When compared with the 500 best hotels from around the world, the Post placed thirty-second. The only other Canadian hotel to crack the top 100 finished eighty-forth.
In January 2008, Condé Nast Traveler announced their "Gold List" of the worlds best places to stay. Here, in a special category for food and wine, the Post was named as the "best hotel for food" in the Americas (Canada, Mexico, Central and South America and the Caribbean).
When asked to comment on the success André Schwarz, who owns the Post with his brother George, paid tribute to the staff (all 150 of them) "our employees are like family to us". He says the secret is to find the right people, who buy into the same vision of excellence as he and his brother George.
