America's Favorite Cities

Do you have a favorite city to visit in the States? If you do, you're always on the lookout for a new place to stay. If that sounds like you and you're up for another wonderful experience at a luxury hotel, check out these top-ranking choices that always satisfy guests in search of fun, glamour, and relaxation.

This past summer, Travel and Leisure polled their readers to decide the best places to visit in the United States, and compared results to both resident and visitor responses. You also have the opportunity to compare two cities according to a category of your choice, as well as choose your ideal getaway with your selected criteria. Choosy vacationers, this is the perfect option for you!

If you are selective about where you stay, you might want to check out cities that ranked high on the list of the finest hotels. By selecting a city with a great reputation for quality stays, you simply can't go wrong.

Orlando (1)
Orlando, home of Walt Disney World Resort and Seaworld, offers a string of jaw-droppingly luxurious hotels for family and business stays. If you crave a great stay with plenty to do (and lots of built-in perks), Orlando should be one of your top picks.

Portofino Bay Hotel at Universal Orlando: Want to stay in Florida. . .and in Italy? Get the best of both worlds at the Portofino Bay Hotel, which has recreated the streets of Portofino down to the cobblestone streets and outdoor cafes. Complete with superior Loews service, this hotel offers European-style luxuries with three swimming pools and, of course, the vibe of La Dolce Vita.

Waldorf Astoria Orlando: This premiere Orlando hotel is nestled over 482 acres in Bonnet Creek--you'll feel like you've traveled to a luxury hotel hidden off somewhere far away, but don't worry--everything's within your reach.

New Orleans (2)
New Orleans is well-known for its resiliency, rich history, and unique blend of cultures. With stunning hotel restaurants and a revamped historical district, you'll find yourself wining, dining, and sightseeing with the best of them.

Loews New Orleans: The new Loews Hotel New Orleans is located quite close to Harrah's Casino, perfect for those of us who don't mind a game of slots or Black Jack to kick off the night. Located in the central business district, this hotel has a stunning fitness center and a huge pool.

W New Orleans: The W New Orleans, found in the French Quarter, might be a quiet oasis, but you are still located right in the center of the action. Enjoy the views in the courtyard, from the fountain outdoors to the illuminated outdoor pool, and then wander through the streets for a piece of the New Orleans action.

Houston (3)
The largest city in Texas happens to a vibrant international community, a hot climate, and a large arts circuit to explore--not to mention those luxury hotels dotting the city's most popular spots.

Hotel Granduca: This hotel, located in the uptown area of Houston, affords great views of the green spaces around the hotel, as well as the pool nestled in the back of the hotel. Stop by Ristorante Cavour, which features a sophisticated menu for a smart palette.

St. Regis Hotel, Houston: Recognized as one of the finest hotels in not just Texas, but in the United States, the St. Regis Hotel is located just minutes from plenty of tourist attractions like theatres and galleries. With 180 rooms, the St. Regis Hotel offers rooms and suites to exact specifications, complete with luxurious, traditional furnishings.

It's going to be hard to choose between some of Travel and Leisure's favorite locations around North America, but the good news is that you add these to your list and start visiting them over the course of a couple family--or solo--trips!
