Now I love a hotel stay as much as the next person, but time after time I've checked in with high hopes and left feeling — well — a little underwhelmed. This may have something to do with me leaving travel plans to the last minute, but having spoken to several hotel bookers, I know it's a common story.

If you're taking a trip to the States in the near future and haven't chosen you're hotel, you're in luck. These are the best of the best when it comes to value, service, location, amenities, and attention to detail. From cozy lodges overlooking the mountains to rooms decked out with oh-so-chic 1920s glam, you're in for one hell of a stay whichever property you land upon.
