Georgia is home to one of the best hotels in the country, according to U.S. News & World Report.



In rankings released 27 January 2015, The Lodge at Sea Island claimed a spot among the top five U.S. hotels.

The Lodge at Sea Island is no stranger to accolades — it was named a 2015 Travel + Leisure 500 World's Best Hotel and received the 2015 AAA Five Diamond Award, plus last year it was named U.S. News' No. 1 Best Hotel in the USA. Though it was nudged out of the top spot, this hotel still maintains a high standard of excellence by providing guests with an abundance of amenities and attractive accommodations. The property features three championship golf courses, a massive spa and fitness center, tennis and squash facilities and multiple restaurants. Meanwhile, the Lodge's English country manor-styled rooms are outfitted with hardwood floors, Oriental rugs, marble bathrooms with deep soaking tubs and 24-hour butler service. Plus, according to recent travelers, simple gestures like employees calling guests by their names make visitors feel truly special at this hotel.

The Best Hotels methodology combines a hotel's industry accolades with expert and guest reviews and hotel class ratings. U.S. News scored luxury hotels, identifying the top 10 percent in the United States, Canada, Mexico and the Caribbean with Gold badges and the top 30 percent within specific markets with Silver badges.

"We're taking the guesswork out of finding a great hotel," said Erin Shields, travel editor for U.S. News. "The Best Hotels of 2015 represent the top properties recognized by experts and travel ers alike for their exemplary service, ample amenities and comfortable accommodations."

The Lodge at Sea Island was also ranked as Georgia's best hotel.

The St. Regis Atlanta, the Ritz-Carlton Lodge in Greensboro, the Ritz-Carlton Buckhead, the Cloister at Sea Island, and the Four Seasons Hotel Atlanta were all listed as some of the best hotels in the U.S. too.
