Infographic: Best Hotels 2016

In 2016, U.S. News ranked nearly 2,600 hotels across four regions (Canada, Mexico, the Caribbean and the United States) based on hotel's accolades, star rating and feedback from travelers. 

About 70 percent of these hotels are located within the United States, and U.S. News collected more than 200,000 data points to allow travelers to learn everything about a hotel before booking. Facts range from listing standard guest room amenities (like if connecting rooms or minibars are available) to flagged extra fees (for Wi-Fi access, parking and kids clubs, for example). So, whether you're looking for an all-inclusive resort with direct beach access or a ski lodge with luxe amenities, you can choose the right hotel for you without any surprises. 

The infographic below gives an overview of the services and amenities you can expect from each region's hotels. You can also check out the full Best Hotels rankings for more information on and detailed reviews of the top properties.
