    Villas of Grand Cypress Orlando
    Orlando, FL

    Travelers speak highly of their time at the Villas of Grand Cypress Orlando. Previous guests, from families to couples to business travelers, describe the resort – which is tucked onto Orlando's North Jacaranda Street – as a gem. Rooms here feature spacious bathrooms with separate bathtubs and glass-enclosed showers, flat-screen TVs, Keurig coffee makers and high-speed internet access. What's more, the villas come with a pretty sweet view; private patios or decks face either the nearby waterways or the resort's fairways. Speaking of greens, the Villas of Grand Cypress boasts 45 holes designed by Jack Nicklaus to conquer. The resort also prides itself on being family-friendly. Outdoor activities found on-site include a pool and several biking trails. Tennis courts, a rock climbing wall, a miniature golf course, a pool with a waterslide and a game room can also be enjoyed at the resort's sister property, the Hyatt Regency Grand Cypress. What's more, on-site The Clubhouse serves delectable cuisine for breakfast, lunch and dinner. But there's a catch: A stay at the Villas of Grand Cypress doesn't come cheap.

    Taking design inspiration from Miami, this Vero Beach outpost (owned by musician Gloria Estefan and her husband, Emilio) is a favorite for couples and families in need of a quick getaway. With art deco furnishings and portholes looking out over the white-sand shoreline, the Costa d'Este Beach Resort & Spa offers guests a more relaxed resort atmosphere than that found in crowded Miami Beach. Recent guests praise the spacious rooms, superior service and pet-friendly accommodations this resort offers. Rooms are contemporary in design and feature a balcony or patio. When you're not relaxing in your room, lounge by the outdoor infinity-edge pool, take a nighttime stroll along the beach or check out Ocean Drive's shops and restaurants. For an extra dose or relaxation, book a massage at the on-site spa.

    Topnotch Resort

    Today, Stowe teems with high-end resorts, but Topnotch Resort stands out in more ways than one. Rooms lean toward the smaller side, but guests appreciate their cozy vibe, modern furnishings and comfortable beds. The lobby's stone walls and large mounted moose head evoke a classic ski-lodge atmosphere, but the 35,000-foot spa space is anything but dated. Multiple pools, a co-ed sauna and an indoor hot tub with a waterfall tantalize spa-goers, as do the countless available spa services. Another crowd-pleaser: the zesty culinary offerings available at the two on-site dining venues, Flannel and The Roost. What's more, the staff is said to be nothing short of topnotch.

    Nestled near downtown Santa Barbara, just three blocks east of State Street, this 23-room inn caters to couples looking for a quiet getaway.

Guests can also take advantage of in-room spa services or relax by the pool in the inn's private garden. And while recent visitors recommended the accommodations, they cited the personable and helpful staff as a main reason for repeat stays.

    Willows Lodge

    Free WiFi

    Hemmed in by the Sammamish River in Woodinville wine country, the Willows Lodge stands as a quiet, wooded retreat just 18 miles northeast of Seattle. The hotel's guest rooms boast rustic touches like stone fireplaces and private patios or balconies, from which guests can catch a glimpse of imposing Mount Rainier on a clear day. Guests can also savor a glass of local vintage paired with pan roasted sea scallops at Barking Frog, the lodge's on-site restaurant, or go for a day of pampering at the spa. Even with its luxurious amenities, Willows still welcomes canine friends along for the trip, and even provides doggie beds. However, this luxurious lodge probably isn't the best place to bring your kids. Recent guests applaud Willows Lodge's prompt, personalized service but some say the accommodations were a bit outdated for the price.

    The Tennessean Personal Luxury Hotel
    Knoxville, TN
    #6 in Best Gemstone Collection
    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 5 based on 115 reviewsTripAdvisor (115)
    Free WiFi

    One of the biggest draws of this boutique hotel is its central Knoxville, Tennessee, location. The Tennessean Personal Luxury Hotel is situated just north of the Sunsphere observation tower and the Knoxville Convention Center, making it a convenient option for both leisure and business travelers. But guests say the hotel's friendly staff and comfortable, well-equipped rooms are just as impressive. All rooms and suites have neutral color palettes with blue and gray patterned carpets, accent chairs and window treatments, plus wooden furnishings and regional map artwork. Illy coffee makers, Cuby radios and flat-screen TVs also come standard, while the 1,646-square-foot Governor's Suite features extra perks like a gas fireplace, a baby grand piano, hardwood floors and floor-to-ceiling windows. The suite's nightly rate covers breakfast and six hours of daily butler service as well. Other on-site amenities include a 24-hour business center, an indoor pool, a fitness center, an executive boardroom and The Drawing Room. But keep in mind that The Drawing Room only serves beverages and small plates in the afternoon and evening.

    Free WiFi

    Sitting at the heart of the trendy Back Bay area – just a few blocks from the Newbury Street shops –this boutique hotel impresses guests with its enviable location and contemporary accommodations. Guest rooms feature simplistic decor with shades of cream and grey and red accents. Though most recent guests report a pleasant night's sleep overall, some say while clean and comfortable, the rooms are slightly compact, even for city standards. Outside your digs, you'll find plenty of amenities, including a fitness center, and when dinnertime rolls around, indulge in tasty fare at XHALE. If you're more of a night owl, take advantage of the hotel's in-house bar, Storyville, which overflows with innovative libations as well as an extensive array of small plates available until the wee hours.

    Foodies rejoice: This laid-back New England resort — located just east of Burlington in Essex Junction, Vermont — offers a bounty of culinary offerings. The Cook Academy is popular with recent guests for its private courses in sushi-rolling, pasta-making and baking using local ingredients. And there's fine-dining at the much-adored Junction and The Tavern restaurants as well. When you're ready to work off your meal, the resort allows the chance to swim in the indoor and outdoor pools, play tennis and test your golf game. Or if you would prefer to unwind, book a treatment at the tranquil, full-service spa. Afterward, cozy up in your comfortable accommodations, appointed with 300-thread-count linens, iPod docking stations and classic brick-enclosed fireplaces (in some suites). Some recent guests did feel that for the price tag, the rooms could use some updating.

    Located in the heart of Park City, Utah, Main & SKY advertises that visitors have the best of both worlds with its proximity to the historic downtown area and quick access to various ski resorts. Whatever the reason for their trip, recent guests seem to agree. The location, the decor and the on-site bar all receive praise. Travelers also love the look and feel of the rooms, which come equipped with fireplaces and flat-panel HD TVs; previous visitors highly recommend splurging on a suite with a pool table or a private balcony with a hot tub. And as for the in-house Sugati Spa & Wellness center and TAVERN restaurant, those earn rave reviews as well. Most travelers have nothing but positive things to say about the customer service at this property, though some mention a negative check-in experience.

    As its names suggests, this resort offers unparalleled views of the Garden of the Gods and the Rocky Mountains from its perch just north of Colorado Springs, Colorado. Aside from the landmark vantage point, which guests can enjoy from their guest room's balcony or patio, each room and suite is equipped with a minifridge, Gilchrist & Soames toiletries, a fireplace and an iPod docking station. When you're not admiring the resort's enviable perch from your balcony, take in the views during a round of golf on the 27-hole course. The resort offers plenty of ways to work up a sweat, including tennis courts, a fitness center and a recreation center, which boasts a junior Olympic-size swimming pool, a playground and a basketball court. If you'd rather relax, the property also features a full-service spa and a heated outdoor infinity pool. Along with the many facilities, past guests raved about the on-site dining, which is composed of three restaurants. However, recent visitors said they'd return for the amazing views alone.

    Free WiFi

    Marenas Beach Resort is a modern beach resort sitting on another stretch of Collins Avenue in the northern Miami Beach suburb of Sunny Isles Beach. Rooms here are predominately suites with the exception of the classic guest rooms, which are a mere 200 square feet. But that doesn't mean amenities are few and far between. All rooms feature Gilchrist & Soames bath products, Keurig coffee makers, iHome radios and balconies with bay or ocean panoramas, while suites include kitchens and washers and dryers. The stretch of Miami Beach is also equally spectacular, and the resort will distribute towels and lounge chairs. For kids, the property boasts a game room and a pool. Meanwhile, Caracol Restaurant serves up fresh seafood with Mediterranean flavors, and the in-house spa offers a wide array of massages and skin treatments. Also note that from Marenas, you're about a 5-mile drive from the Bal Harbour Shops, making this a good home base for those looking to do some shopping.

    While Utah might be the last place you'd think to look for a European getaway, Zermatt Resort offers a taste of life across the pond, no passport required. Located in Midway, this Gemstone property was named after Zermatt, Switzerland due to a similarity between the Wasatch Mountain valley and the Swiss Matterhorn region. But the landscape isn't Zermatt Resort's only brag-worthy feature. Guests particularly like this resort for its family-friendly amenities, such as a mini-golf course, a pool and a carousel. Grown-ups will also find plenty of ways to play, thanks to tennis and shuffleboard courts and a full-service spa. However, some guests report bad run-ins with management and rude staff members. When hunger strikes, take the kids for some pizza at Wildfire Smokehaus, or plan a gourmet date night at Z's Steak & Chop Haus. And as the day draws to a close, visitors say you won't be able to wait to jump into the guest rooms' plush beds. Or, stay in an upgraded suite to enjoy extras like your own fireplace or a private deck with a jetted tub.
