February 6, 2017 1:21pm
Washington, D.C. – Feb. 6, 2017 – U.S. News & World Report, the global authority in rankings and consumer advice, today announced the 2017 Best Hotels. The rankings evaluate more than 3,000 luxury hotels across the USA, the Caribbean (now including Havana, Cuba), Canada and Mexico.
In the Best Hotels in the USA rankings, Chicago's The Langham jumped to No. 1, followed by Hawaii's Four Seasons Resort Hualalai at No. 2 and The Jefferson, Washington, DC at No. 3. U.S. News awards the top 10 percent of ranked hotels with a Gold badge. These three U.S. cities are home to the highest number of Gold badge-winning hotels for 2017:
Gold badge hotels in the U.S. are three times more likely to offer infinity pools, free fitness classes and free kids clubs than other ranked hotels. And consumers are willing to pay more for top quality – our research shows these hotels' rates are approximately 60 percent higher than their competitors'.
Outside of the U.S., Eden Rock – St. Barths is ranked as the Best Hotel in the Caribbean. The One&Only Palmilla takes the top spot for the Best Hotel in Mexico. For the fourth year in a row, the Ritz-Carlton, Montreal earns recognition as the Best Hotel in Canada.
New this year, U.S. News debuted a ranking of the Best Hotels in Havana. IBEROSTAR Parque Central takes the top spot on this inaugural list.
"Our rankings are designed to narrow down the perfect hotel for your vacation – whether it is on a beach, in a major city or in a remote location," said Erin Shields, travel editor at U.S. News. "The U.S. News Best Hotels hit the mark for both travelers and industry experts, offering exceptional customer service and luxury amenities."
How to Find the Best Hotel
Travelers looking for a top hotel typically have a destination or a hotel brand in mind. As in past years, U.S. News has published the 2017 Best Hotels rankings in more than 200 destinations. This time of year, the most popular hotel searches are in warm-weather spots, including Maui, Turks and Caicos and Cancun. U.S. News also ranks the Best All-Inclusive Resorts in the Caribbean and Mexico, new additions to our hotel rankings. For vacationers who have points with loyalty programs, such as Marriott Rewards or Hilton HHonors, a Best Hotels by Brand directory is also available.
U.S. News scored luxury hotels (4-star and higher) using a methodology that combines each hotel's industry awards with expert and guest reviews. These rankings are part of the expanding U.S. News Travel channel, which evaluates the Best Hotels in Europe, Best Vacations, Best Cruise Lines and Best Travel Rewards Programs.
