The hotels, resorts, and cruise lines that make the coveted Conde Nast Gold List each year have a legacy to live up to: luxury at its best. The annual list, now in its eighteenth year, was just released after a tally of more than 8 million votes cast by readers and travelers. With over 500 hotels, resorts and cruises to choose from, the list can seem daunting (or to those who dream of far away places, it can be the best read of the year), so we've highlighted the New England properties that made the list. May the lap of luxury be in your 2012 plans...

Of course, the Gold List spans beyond New England and the U.S. Recent reports show that 2012 is the year Americans spend more money on travel to far away places. In international travel is on your 2012 plans, a few of my favorite hotels from the Gold List 2012 include: The Dorchester, London; Dukes Hotel, London; Renaissance Paris Vendome Hotel, Paris; Hotel Plaza Athenee, Paris; Ritz-Carlton Powerscourt, Co. Wicklow, Ireland; The Peninsula, Bangkok; and the Ritz-Carlton Shanghai, Pudong, China.
