Luxury Worth the Price

Sometimes choosing a hotel is based on cost and convenience, and all of the bells and whistles aren't all that important. What matters is that there's a comfortable bed to sleep on and a shower to clean up in. At other times, the hotel is an integral part of the vacation, and travelers demand the best amenities, from on-site spas to the finest Italian linens. U.S. News & World Report analyzed hotel star ratings, visitor reviews and ratings, and industry awards to rank the best hotels in the country, and Cheapism looked at the going rate for a room at 10 of them.
