Pauline Frommer's London has been recognized as the best guidebook of 2009 by the Society of American Travel Writer's Lowell Thomas Travel Journalism Competition. The award is given annually to honor outstanding work in print and online travel journalism and is the premier competition in the field.
"Everyone who worked on Pauline Frommer's London, from its author, Jason Cochran, to our marvelous cartographers to our proud series editor (me!) is honored to get this award," said series creator and editor Pauline Frommer. "We feel this book, and the 13 other titles in the Pauline Frommer's 'Spend Less, See More' series offer readers valuable information on budget-conscious, culturally-rich travel that they can't get anywhere else. And we're honored that the Society of American Travel Writers apparently agrees."
Ensley Eikenburg, associate publisher for Frommer's® commented, "We're delighted that Pauline Frommer's London and its talented author Jason Cochran have been honored with the Society of American Travel Writers's Gold Medal Lowell Thomas Award. This book shows travelers how to spend less and see more of London in a truly engaging and authentic way."
Pauline Frommer's London was also named the Best Guidebook of the Year in the 2007 North American Travel Journalists Association (NATJA), and Pauline Frommer's New York City won the NATJA award in 2006 and 2008.
