Hotels in the United States are as diverse as the country itself. Try these hotels to get a taste of the best this country has to offer.

Sick of returning from a vacation and wishing you’d booked something else? Sick of sleeping on hard mattresses, eating a bad breakfast, and having to walk for hours before reaching any points of interest? Nobody can blame you. But it also doesn’t have to be that way.

To help you amplify your hotel experience, we’ve compiled the best hotels in the U.S. for our trivago Awards 2019.

“As a leading global hotel metasearch with data on millions of aggregated guest ratings, we are well positioned to identify the top-rated hotels that are delivering exceptional guest experiences,” said Johannes Thomas, Managing Director at trivago. “At the same time, being a digital marketing channel used by hundreds of thousands of hoteliers around the world enables us to recognize the hotels that are embracing technology and excelling online. The trivago Awards give us the chance to honor the hard-working and forward-looking hoteliers behind these exemplary hotels, and we are thrilled to do so again this year.”

Guests rave about their stays at these properties – and so will you. So what are you waiting for?

The Best Alternative Accommodation in the U.S.


Wailea Beach Villas – Wailea-Mākena, HI

If you’ve always dreamed of living in a beach villa surrounded by palm trees and the sea, stop dreaming and take a trip to Hawaii. Wailea Beach Villas offer you self-catering two- or four-bedroom villas to live your dream life with your family or friends. Comfortable beds, luxurious bathrooms, fully-equipped kitchens, and even a fully-equipped office – “home away from home” has never been a more accurate description.

Swim in a freshwater pool with only a hedge between you and the sea, relax and eat dinner on the oceanview terrace or unwind with a dip in the Jacuzzi before dozing off in your four-poster bed. The only negative: You’ll probably have to return home eventually.
