Don't Believe the Hype

Last fall, Budget Travel's Erik Torkells joined a group of travel editors for a discussion hosted by the trade publication Travel Weekly. The transcript of the sometimes testy discussion can now be found here. "The roundtable was actually a lot of fun," says Torkells. "It was a great dialogue. For one thing, it showed how refreshingly different we are from the other magazines. As a reader, I'm skeptical when it comes to places that are suddenly declared 'hot.' It sounds like a bunch of editors sitting in a room making stuff up. My problem has to do with hype, not Philadelphia, which may very well be the Next Great American City--whatever that means."
