There are wonderful and exciting hotels in the United States that are great places to consider for a romantic getaway or a well-deserved vacation.
Fodor’s Travel listed their top hotels in America that they define as “incredible” for various reasons. All of the hotels are quite different, yet they do have characteristics that make them really special.
The 100 top Fodor’s choices for the best luxury hotels in the world include the best hotels in the USA. Our American favorites include the Dunton Hot Springs spa hotel located on the Dolores River in the state of Colorado. In Idyllwild, California, which is about halfway between Los Angeles and Palm Springs, there is the charming and quirky Hicksville Pines Motel.
For those that prefer a metro area, nice accommodations can be found at the Ace Hotel in historic New Orleans, the Texan treasure of the Hotel Emma found in San Antonio, and the Gramercy Park Hotel that is a renown place to stay in New York City.
Dunton Hot Springs
There are wonderful cabins at Dunton Hot Springs to stay in while enjoying a bath in the warm natural springs. This spa is situated right on the stunning Dolores River with plenty of hiking trails to enjoy in the nearby San Juan Mountains. There is a rustic comfort at this hotel with plenty of activities for each season. That includes skiing in winter and trail rides or fly fishing in the summer.
Hicksville Pines Motel
This is a unique place where every room is decorated in a creative way based on a specific theme such as the Dolly Parton room, a room based on John Water’s movies, and a room that has a vibe like the television show Twin Peaks. If guests want to have a special experience sharing legal recreational marijuana they can book the “420” room that has a sunken bed, black-light posters, and hippie-style 1970’s kitsch.
The Ace Hotel has an art deco style. It can be found in the heart of New Orleans just a short walk from the world-famous French Quarter. It has three extraordinary restaurants. Guest can lounge and relax at the rooftop pool, an exceptional art gallery, a performance space that offers eclectic shows, such as drag performers, for fun entertainment. Other amenities include a traditional barbershop, a coffee house, and many interesting boutique shops.
Sitting in a brick brewery building that dates from the 19th century, this charming hotel has a library with close to 4,000 books for those that want to kick back and catch up on their reading of the classics. There is a rooftop pool. The restaurant serves American food and specializes in southwest-flavored dishes.
Gramercy Park Hotel
This is a glitzy hotel in the center of New York City that is a favorite place for celebrities to stay in while they visit New York. The rooms have a nice retro feeling combined with contemporary amenities. The exclusive Rose Bar is a favored hangout for the A-list celebs. It has the Maialino, which is a highly-rated Italian restaurant that stays open for late-night dining.
All of these hotels are spectacular and make a wonderful choice for your next vacation.
