Our little gem joined a list of the United States’ best of the best (we’re still happy as clams about this latest award!) and the San Diego Union Tribune took to the web and paper to share.
“The magazine’s compilation is based on an analysis of expert and user opinions. It takes into consideration not only awards bestowed by respected travel publications, but it also looks at guest ratings on tripadvisor.com,” explains UT’s Lori Weisberg. The bestowers of said award, US News & World Report, further shared, ”The properties reflected on this list are winners not only for their luxurious amenities, fine service and lavish decor, but also for the way they showcase America’s diversity.”
We’re jumping for joy!
