Top 5 Most Amazing Luxury Hotels in the Usa

The United States of America, where I spent part of my studies, is one of the most hauntingly beautiful countries in the world. It offers its visitors a staggering array of breathtaking attractions, including vibrant cities, spectacular scenery, amazing road trips, phenomenal wildlife, and beautiful beaches. My personal favorites are the mythical cities of New York City and San Francisco, the unspoilt wilderness of Alaska, the jaw dropping beauty of the Hawaiian islands, and the phenomenal landscapes of the National Parks in the West.

CAVALLO POINT LODGE, SAN FRANCISCO

Nestled at the Golden Gate Bridge and once the site of a military base, Cavallo Point Lodge offers a sophisticated hotel experience achieved with ecological intelligence. The exterior of the historic buildings has been beautifully restored, preserving Fort Baker’s original architecture, and giving the lodge a clean, elegant look that harmonizes with the surrounding nature. The elegant but understated rooms and suites, acclaimed restaurant, and world-class Healing Arts Center & Spa will make you feel relaxed, nourished, invigorated and connected.

Enjoying a prime location on top of the Time Warner Center at the southwest corner of Central Park, and within easy reach of all of the city’s legendary sites, shops and attractions, this luxurious hotel enjoys an unbeatable setting in the midst of the action. Stunning floor-to-ceiling windows overlook the Hudson River, Central Park and Manhattan’s glittering skyline, while the 198 sumptuous rooms and 46 spacious suites offer the ultimate blend of style, comfort and luxury. The hotel’s lavish spa is one of the best on the island of Manhattan.

LITTLE PALM ISLAND, FLORIDA KEYS

Little Palm Island is a close as you can get to an exclusive private island experience in the continental USA.  Accessible only by boat or seaplane, this Florida Keys resort is a secluded world of lush tropical gardens, crushed seashell paths, and 30 thatched-roof, Bahamas-style bungalows. With no phones or television, the soundtrack at this resort is the lapping of ocean waves, the rustle of the leaves in the breeze, and the melody of neighboring birds and tree frogs. Days are spent in hammocks fixed to the palm trees, lounge chairs on the small beach, and the world-class restaurant and spa.

POST RANCH INN, BIG SUR, CALIFORNIA

High atop the cliffs of Big Sur, 400 meters (1200 feet) above the Pacific Ocean, sits Post Ranch Inn, a sanctuary for the soul and one of the USA’s most prestigious hotels. The rustic retreat is located on the Californian Highway between San Francisco and Los Angeles, which ranks as one of the most scenic roads in the world. With natural architecture embracing the coast’s dramatic beauty and the surrounding redwoods, the 39 rooms blend rustic elegance, comfort and privacy with panoramic ocean or mountain views. Here, romance and connection seem to thrive.
