The team has been a total game-changer for the hotel. Through my many years of working with NYC agencies, I can say LDPR is by far the most professional, enjoyable, and results-driven team I’ve worked with.

The Redbury New York
When Travel Portland started working with Laura Davidson Public Relations it was like finding a key that unlocked the door to a world of media opportunities. LDPR works like an extension of our internal public relations team – building on our strengths and reinforcing our weaknesses. They know media. They know travel. They know our story and how to tell it to generate results. It has been a wonderful partnership which allowed us to push our domestic media program to new heights.

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 world-class public relations representation.

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 Conde 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.

The bottom line is LDPR is responsive, proactive, competitive, strategic and most importantly, they are nice genuine people. We wouldn't trade LDPR for any other PR firm in the world!
