U.S. News & World Report identifies the top hotels using a comprehensive methodology centered on three components: reputation among professional travel experts, guest reviews, and hotel class ratings.

In the U.S., following Four Seasons Resort Hualalai in the number two spot is The Peninsula Chicago; and the Four Seasons Hotel at The Surf Club, Surfside, Florida is number three. These high-ranking hotels are known for outstanding service, ample on-site amenities, and elegant accommodations.

For the Best Hotels in Mexico, Esperanza, an Auberge Resort in Cabo San Lucas takes the top position; while Le Blanc Spa Resort in Cancun is the Best All-Inclusive Resort in Mexico. Jade Mountain in St. Lucia is the Best Hotel in the Caribbean and snags the top spot as the Best All-Inclusive Resort in the Caribbean, thanks to its various dining package options. The Loren at Pink Beach ranks number one on this year's Best Hotels in Bermuda list.

The Rosewood Hotel Georgia earns recognition as the Best Hotel in Canada for the second year running. Meanwhile, in Europe, La Réserve Paris – Hotel and Spa is the number one Best Hotel, followed by Copenhagen's Hotel Sanders at number two and Rome's Hotel Eden at number three.

U.S. News & World Report has also introduced additional destination-specific rankings to the Best Hotels in the U.S. portfolio, ranging from vacation spots like Lake Placid, New York; to smaller cities like Carlsbad, California; to college towns like State College, Pennsylvania, and Tuscaloosa, Alabama.
