PHILADELPHIA — If you’re planning a vacation or weekend getaway to Philadelphia and want to stay at the best hotel, you’re in luck — U.S. News and World Report today released the newest edition of its Best Hotels rankings, and several Philadelphia hotels made the cut.

Evaluating more than 30,000 hotels worldwide, U.S. News compiled the 10th annual Best Hotels list to help travelers find their ideal hotel, regardless of destination or budget, according to the report.

In Philadelphia, The Rittenhouse took top honors, earning the only Gold distinction.

The Kimpton Hotel Palomar Philadelphia and Kimpton Hotel Monaco Philadelphia, The Ritz-Carlton, and The Logan Philadelphia, rounded out the top five respectively, all earning Silver distinctions.

U.S. News also named the top hotels in several places worldwide, including the best in the U.S., Canada, Mexico, Europe, the Caribbean and Bermuda. Coming in first on the U.S. list is the Four Seasons Resort Lanai in Hawaii.

Four other locations rounded out the top five hotels in the U.S.:

Since the inaugural ranking in 2011, only 41 properties have earned a gold badge by consistently ranking in the top 10 percent in the U.S. over a period of 10 years. These range from brand-backed properties such as the Four Seasons Hotel Chicago and The Ritz-Carlton New York, Central Park, to smaller, more intimate hotels such as The Inn of the Five Graces in Santa Fe, New Mexico, and the Wentworth Mansion in Charleston, South Carolina.

Hotels with a gold badge distinction have consistently provided comfortable accommodations, high levels of customer service, and memorable and luxurious experiences for travelers, the report says.

Two other hotels from Pennsylvania earned a gold badge, while 15 earned silver, meaning these hotels consistently ranked in the top 30 percent of all 3.5-, 4-, 4.5- and 5-star hotels in that destination.
