The best hotels in North America have been named in U.S. News & World Report's seventh annual rankings.
Taking top honors: Chicago's posh the Langham, which opened in 2013 in a 52-story modernist tower alongside the Chicago River. Runners-up include two hotels in Hawaii—the Four Seasons Resort Hualalai (#2) and the Montage Kapalua Bay (#4)—as well as the Jefferson in Washington, D.C. (#3) and Georgia's the Lodge at Sea Island, which came in first place last year.
Based on evaluations of more than 3,000 luxury hotels with ratings of four stars and higher, the list also ranks hotels in Canada, Mexico, and the Caribbean.
According to U.S. News, the One&Only Palmilla in Los Cabos is the best hotel in Mexico, Eden Rock-St. Barths is tops in the Caribbean, and, garnering its fourth consecutive win, the Ritz-Carlton Montreal is numero uno in Canada.
