With 4,300 hotels in 100 countries, the AccorHotels group has spent nearly half a century building its portfolio to become one of the world's largest hospitality companies. And though Accor is associated with such luxury brands as Sofitel and MGallery, the company also offers travelers plenty of budget-friendlier lodging options, too, including ibis budget and Mercure. By making its rooms available to a wide variety of traveler types, Accor provides travelers with accommodations that best suit their individual needs while acting as a lead competitor across the travel spectrum. Though each brand exhibits its own distinct sense of character, guests can expect to find high-quality customer service, ample business amenities and environmentally friendly practices in every Accor outpost. Plus, guests who frequently choose to stay in Accor properties can become a member of Le Club AccorHotels. Points accrued through Le Club AccorHotels can be exchanged for free nights, room upgrades, airline miles and other perks at most Accor properties. The Accor properties that made our Best Hotels in the USA, Best Hotels in Canada, Best Hotels in Mexico, Best Hotels in Bermuda and Best Hotels in Europe rankings lists are displayed below.

    Fairmont San Francisco
    San Francisco, CA
    5-star HOTEL CLASS
    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 4.5 based on 4183 reviewsTripAdvisor (4183)

    You know the Tony Bennett song, "I Left my Heart in San Francisco"? Well, he first sang it at this Nob Hill Fairmont property in 1962. Guests who opt to stay at the Fairmont San Francisco quickly realize how leaving one's heart here can be an easy thing to do. The hotel's lobby  with its towering columns, velvet furnishings and gilded accents  provides the backdrop to many a family photo op, and the customer service staff earns constant praise from recent visitors who say they were treated like royalty. The guest rooms here aren't quite as opulent, but they do offer excellent views of the San Francisco Bay and amenities such as pillow-top beds, Frette linens and coffee makers. Guests of the Fairmont are also welcome to take advantage of the on-site spa and health club before sitting down to dinner at the Tonga Room & Hurricane Bar (for Asian cuisine) or the Laurel Court Restaurant & Bar (for fresh seafood). Visitors can also get around downtown San Francisco easily during their vacations here, as a trolley stops right outside the property.

    Claremont Club & Spa, A Fairmont Hotel
    Berkeley, CA
    5-star HOTEL CLASS
    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 4 based on 1736 reviewsTripAdvisor (1736)

    Simply put, the Claremont Club & Spa is gorgeous. Set near the University of California-Berkeley campus, this AccorHotels outpost boasts enviable views of the San Francisco Bay and a relaxed atmosphere. Recent guests were delighted by the Claremont's Old World ambiance (as seen in accommodations' chandeliers, dark wood furniture and textured fabrics) and its luxury amenities, such as tennis courts and a full-service spa. Guest rooms here also feature flat-screen TVs, Keurig coffee makers and minibars. Meanwhile, the Claremont's in-house eateries also earn praise from previous diners for their relaxed settings and scrumptious cuisine. Meritage specializes in small plates and wine tastings, and the Bayview Café serves up casual fare poolside. The customer service staff members also earn a thumbs-up for their friendly demeanor. However, travelers note that staying at this property will require a sizable chunk of your vacation budget.

    Fairmont Miramar Hotel & Bungalows
    Santa Monica, CA
    5-star HOTEL CLASS
    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 4 based on 2708 reviewsTripAdvisor (2708)

    Little touches such as soy milk for your morning coffee or steel cut oats for your breakfast oatmeal go a long way with recent guests of the Fairmont Miramar Hotel & Bungalows. Those travelers also praise the invested and attentive staff and the fresh produce served in the hotel's FIG restaurant. This hotel earns praise for its proximity to the Third Street Promenade of Santa Monica, not to mention its deluxe on-site amenities, which include the exhale Spa, a fitness center (which hosts Mind Body classes) and an outdoor pool. Visitors find that the guest rooms meet their needs, housing flat-screen TVs, internet access (for an additional fee) and Keurig coffee makers. However, previous guests recommend requesting a room facing the pool rather than the ocean, as late-night noise from the nearby Santa Monica Pier can make for a restless night. Members of the Le Club AccorHotels can earn points for choosing to stay here.

    Fairmont Sonoma Mission Inn & Spa
    Sonoma, CA
    4-star HOTEL CLASS
    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 4 based on 1559 reviewsTripAdvisor (1559)
    Free Parking

    Just 3 miles north of downtown Sonoma, the Fairmont Sonoma Mission Inn & Spa offers exceptional service befitting the beautiful property. Guests note how ready and eager the concierge, bell men and valet are to help them. Because the Fairmont inhabits an older building, be prepared for smaller-than-expected rooms. However, visitors were generally pleased with the in-room technology and amenities in the rooms (though some note that accommodations are starting to feel dated). Many travelers also say that a stay here is relaxing, thanks to amenities like the spa, the pool and the free shuttle to Sonoma Golf Club. Because this is an AccorHotels property, members of the Le Club AccorHotels program can receive a few complimentary perks here.
