Luxury Redefined with Edie Rodriguez (Americas Brand Chairman and Corporate Special Advisor at Ponant), Caroline MacDonald ( VP of Sales and Marketing, Americas and Europe at Rosewood Hotels), Kristie Goshow (Chief Marketing Officer at Preferred Hotel Group) and interviewed by Frances Kiradjian, Founder & CEO, BLLA
Before BLLA made it its mission to make boutique hotels mainstream, people defined them as properties with a limited number of rooms and personality. The same could be said of cruise ships. The pioneers of the boutique experience, if you will, cruise ships and lifestyle hotels crystallized the idea that lasting, impactful experiences are facilitated by venues with luxury amenities, communal spaces and lots of pizazz. Ponant Cruises, Preferred Hotels and Resorts and Rosewood Hotels personify luxury on an off land. Our panelists are ranking members in these prestigious organizations, and joined us to talk luxury, boutique, and their experience as women who dominate their industries.
