Finding the right hotel can be tough. You can spend hours researching, but in the end, what you see online isn't always what you get. U.S. News has taken the guesswork out of booking. U.S. News & World Report identifies the best hotels using an unbiased methodology centered on three components: reputation among professional travel experts, guest reviews, and hotel class ratings.
U.S. News has ranked more than 2,000 hotels across the USA, the Caribbean and Mexico. Among the luxury hotels we analyzed, the top 10 percent were selected as winners of our annual Best Hotels in the USA, Best Hotels in the Caribbean and Best Hotels in Mexico.

Best Hotels by Brand
U.S. News Travel has made it easier to find the right hotel for you (and your travel rewards program) with our Best Hotels by Brand rankings, which profile the best brand-backed hotels in the USA and the Caribbean. The hotels found on these lists are ranked according to our Best Hotels methodology.
Hotels by Destination
We are currently in the process of evaluating international hotels using the same unbiased methodology behind the rankings of the Best Hotels in the USA, the Best Hotels in the Caribbean and the Best Hotels in Mexico. In the meantime, you can access lists, check rates, and read user reviews of hotels in regions such as Europe, Asia and South America. The order in which these hotels appear is based on the hotel's class ratings (also known as a "star rating") and the guest review rating according to TripAdvisor.com.
