How it Ranks: The Umstead Hotel and Spa ranks #2 out of 1219 North Carolina Hotels based on an evaluation of expert ratings and awards, as well as user reviews. The hotel scored high enough to make the exclusive U.S. News list of the Best Hotels in the USA.

Our Take: Sitting just off Interstate 40 about 9 miles northwest of Raleigh, N.C., The Umstead Hotel and Spa strives to provide guests with a sense of tranquility. The hotel's designers had a keen eye for detail: The Umstead's ornamentations are reflective of its natural surroundings, with plants and statues of animals adorning the lobby and other common areas; guest rooms feature muted green tones. Guests rave about The Umstead's appearance as well as its services, including the soothing Umstead Spa and the five-diamond Herons restaurant. But above all, guests credit the hotel employees for their positive experience; many note that the concierge and front desk staff make a point to learn your name.
