29. Sonnenalp Hotel

The Sonnenalp Hotel was created long before Vail, Colorado, became one of the country’s most famous ski destinations.

History comes to life at The Jefferson, Washington DC, which is the No. 4 best hotel in the District of Columbia and No. 27 in the country.

What was once a Washington post office is now a glamorous hotel with dramatic touches like 16-foot ceilings in the guest rooms.

The hotel also houses a modern steakhouse and the Benjamin Bar & Lounge, which is appropriately named for Benjamin Franklin, the nation’s first Postmaster General.

25. Ocean House

The name Ocean House may bring to mind a weathered beach cottage, but in reality, this No. 1 Best Hotel in Rhode Island (and No. 25 Best Hotel in the USA) is a massive yellow Victorian mansion overlooking the sea. The only AAA Five Diamond property in Rhode Island, the Ocean House first opened in 1868 and has since grown into a culinary gem, a spa lover’s heaven and an increasingly popular wedding destination.
