Monmouth Plantation makes Travel + Leisure “2007 World's Best” List

Travel + Leisure Magazine has announced the results of its 12th Annual World’s Best Awards Readers’ Survey, naming Monmouth Plantation, one of the “Top 100 Hotels in the Continental U.S. and Canada.”

Every year, Travel + Leisure turns to its discriminating readers to determine the very best in travel, from hotels that go the extra mile to operators who make the journey possible. The results are featured in the August issue of Travel + Leisure, the world's leading travel magazine, and online at

This year, Southern hotels, with their legendary hospitality, lead the Continental U.S. and Canada, making up nearly a quarter of the list, with Monmouth proud to be in that number. This just goes to show that Travel + Leisure readers fall hard for Southern charm.

According to T + L, Monmouth’s competitive edge is “An atmospheric hotel on a gorgeous estate with centuries-old oak trees.” T + L’s “Don't Miss?” Why, Chef Lanny Brasher's 5-course dinner of Southern specialties, such as grits with quail grillades, of course.

Owner, Lani Riches, says, "It is an honor, indeed, to be included in such esteemed company.” She and her husband, Ron, lovingly restored Monmouth in 1978 and continue to make improvements to the property on an ongoing basis in order to provide a guest experience at a level of service and attention to detail that will meet the expectations of such seasoned travelers.

Located in historic Natchez, the four diamond hotel’s antebellum splendor is a secluded haven with 30 luxurious rooms & suites nestled throughout 26 acres of estate grounds including wooded hiking trails, winding pathways through floral gardens and lakes, splashing fountains and moss covered oaks. This c. 1818 National Landmark is a member of Historic Hotels of America, Small Luxury Hotels of the World & Select Registry.
