Testimonials

Your reputation precedes you, and in the PR industry your reputation is your currency.

At J Public Relations, we are proud to say that the majority of our business comes from client and media referrals. Read on for a very real look at what some of the best luxury lifestyle and travel leaders are saying about us and why they consider JPR one of the top public relations companies in the country.

The J Public Relations team’s greatest attribute is its willingness to listen and to understand what a writer or editor is seeking. They fully embrace the notion of a partnership and work hard to provide just what a publication needs. In a world that is growing more self-centered all the time, it’s refreshing to find a PR team that works for its clients, but also with the editorial community. Shaun Tolson, Editor, Robb Report Collection

I have worked with the founding partners of J Public Relations on a myriad projects since 2002.  And here’s the kicker, because of varying ownership groups, they’ve fought for and won the account each time.  From small, family owned hotels to unique properties within large chains, the JPR team gets it.  We’ve teamed up on new build launches for branded properties and independents, enhancements of existing hotels and rebranding of others. They are responsive, innovative and resourceful. Melinda Speck, Corporate Director of Marketing, JC Resorts

J Public Relations has been fantastic to work with – not only are they bright, talented and results driven, but they are genuinely enthusiastic about what they do and how it relates to your business. For me, working with them is not really like work at all, it is more like being creative with a bunch of friends. Christine Sullivan, General Manager, The Chanler in Newport, RI.

The team at J Public Relations is incredibly in tune with their clients. They are super savvy, trend-forward and know exactly how to grab my attention in an urgent and compelling way. Jen Murphy, Deputy Editor, AFAR

It has been a joy working with you and your team. You have set a very high bar and shown the value of PR for the success of a hotel. Richard Mandel, President, Ramsfield Hospitality Finance

The women at JPR are some of my favorites in the business: when I need to reach out to my contacts for a story here at Travel + Leisure, I often go to them first. They’re always prompt, filled with fresh ideas, and fantastic to work with. I love that they’re bi-coastal and that they have a young, plugged-in staff. JPR is, in a word, fabulous! Kathryn O’Shea-Evans, Associate Editor, Travel + Leisure

Working with the J Public Relations team is a truly fantastic experience. With these ladies, I’m confident that any inquiry I send – no matter how seemingly small and perhaps insignificant – is received with great professionalism, which is becoming a rarity in a world where so many emails go unanswered. Their publicists are creative with their pitches and super knowledgeable about the products they represent, which makes corresponding with them so seamless and enjoyable. And, everyone I’ve worked with at JPR (from directors to brand-new junior publicists) is genuinely kind and friendly – a big, big plus! Chadner Navarro, Freelancer for Departures, DuJour and many others…

We were looking for a public relations team that was different from all the rest. One that was not corporate feeling, but had passion for what they did and for their clients. A team that we could build a relationship with and have full trust in. JPR had everything we were looking for right from the beginning. They have been extremely proactive, communicative and passionate about our resort and building our profile in the US media. We would highly recommend JPR to any company looking for results. Scot Toon, General Manager, Paresa Phuket

Having worked with Sarah and J Public Relations for several years, I have absolutely no hesitation in recommending them.

An energetic and dynamic PR company, JPR has a true understanding of luxury combined with being results-focused and are absolute pleasure to work with. Jonathan Cartwright, COO of US Hotels and Executive Chef of White Barn Inn

I can’t say enough good things about Sarah and the entire J Public Relations team. They truly care about their clients and are passionate about what they do. They have genuine relationships with journalists and this shows in the results they achieve. They are a true extension of our team and absolute delight to work with. Allison Kline, Director of Marketing, US Hotels New England Management Corp.

JPR was fantastic in the launch of the re-opening of Rancho Valencia in Fall 2012. JPR secured a tremendous amount of publicity and fueled the anticipation leading up to the property unveiling its $30 million renovation. Since opening, the resort has been in multiple features in local, regional and national publications and media outlets. The team is extremely knowledgeable about the luxury hotel industry, and offers great insight, creativity, enthusiasm and professionalism when handling our PR and media relations efforts. Jeff Jacobs, Owner of Rancho Valencia Resort & Spa

JPR is one of the strongest and fluent PR firms today. They truly act as partners to all of the clients they represent. Their sense of ownership is better than that of many “owners.” They have unprecedented relationships with the community, key influencers, and media alike. Stacia Stephens, VP Operations, Enlightened Hospitality Group

Thanks for everything. It was an awesome week and went by so fast. You ladies could be airport screeners, bouncers, skycaps, and bartenders in your next life. Talk about being multi-faceted. You went above and beyond. Doug MacKenzie, Visit Phoenix

It was such a pleasure working with you, and I’m so impressed with your level of professionalism and thorough feedback – I would work with you and your team again in a pinch! Jorden Hutchison, Travel Media Relations Specialist, North America

David and I were so impressed with the schedule your team set up, and with the high calibre of writers and publications you were able to connect us with. It is great to be working with you again, and if the past two days are any indication, The Ivy will have a splendid launching in the press. Christie & David Garrett, Garrett Hotel Consultants
