Düsseldorf, 14 November 2017. Hotel search website trivago releases the results of its annual trivago Awards, using over 175 million aggregated hotel reviews to determine the best-rated hotels in the US.

This year, the top-rated hotels have been awarded across six different categories: 5-star, 4-star, 3-star, Alternative Accommodation, Value for Money and Chain Hotel.

“As an independent source of hotel information with data on over 175 million guest reviews, we are well-positioned to identify the top-rated hotels that excel at delivering exceptional guest experiences,” says Johannes Thomas, Managing Director of trivago N.V. “The trivago Awards give us the chance to recognize and honor the hard-working hoteliers behind these exemplary hotels, and we are thrilled to do so again this year.”

After being awarded last year, The Langham Chicago continues to receive fantastic reviews and crowns the list of the best 5-star hotels in the US.

Charleston’s French Quarter Inn is recognized as the best 4-star hotel in the US followed by Woolley's Classic Suites in Aurora and Marquesa Hotel in Key West.

The trophy for the best 3-star hotel goes to Amish View Inn & Suites in Bird in Hand and the best value for money can be found at Hotel California in Palm Springs.

The top-rated hotels within the most popular hotel chains in the US are Waldorf Astoria Chicago, Embassy Suites by Hilton Springfield and Comfort Suites Hartville.

Finally, the award for the best alternative accommodation belongs to Stonehurst Place in Atlanta which has been awarded also last year. Owner Barb Shadomy adds: “As America's top alternative accommodation, Stonehurst Place constantly raises the bar to deliver a guest experience reflective of the adage: life is about the journey, not just the destination.”
