Paso Robles hotel named best in Southern California — and it’s not the only local spot on the list

Two Paso Robles hotels ranked among the best in Southern California — and one even topped the list.

Hotel Cheval topped Condé Nast Traveler’s list of the 25 best hotels in the region, while the Paso Robles Inn just barely missed the top 10, ranking at No. 11.

Meanwhile, Allegretto Vineyard Resort in Paso Robles took the No. 7 spot on the publication’s list of the top 19 resorts in Southern California.

Both lists were part of the Condé Nast Traveler’s annual Readers’ Choice Awards.

According to Condé Nast Traveler, 600,000 registered voters picked the winners.

“Of nearly 10,000 hotels, resorts and destination spas rated, barely 15 percent made the cut,” the magazine said.

In August, USA Today ranked Hotel Cheval among the top 10 best places to stay in wine country, along with Summerwood Inn in Paso Robles. The publication praised Hotel Cheval for “special touches, like a s’mores butler, library candy bar, gourmet breakfast” and sommelier workshops.

Paso Robles area wineries have also won their share of accolades in 2019.

Four Paso Robles wineries were listed as “essential” destinations by Forbes Magazine, while Robb Report predicted that Paso Robles wines could be the “next blockbuster hit.”

Recently, Tablas Creek Vineyard in Templeton was one of three Central Coast wineries named among the world’s best by Wine & Spirits magazine.
