Three Triad hotels have landed on U.S. News & World Report’s list of the best hotels in North Carolina for 2018, released Tuesday as part of its annual “Best Hotels in the U.S.” report.

The O.Henry Hotel and the Proximity Hotel in Greensboro rank No. 9 and No. 13, respectively, while the Kimpton Cardinal Hotel in Winston-Salem ranks No. 12.

The No. 1 hotel in the state is The Umstead Hotel and Spa in Cary.

The accolades come on the heels of last week’s news that the same three hotels had earned AAA Four Diamond awards.

The Best Hotels list looked at more than 24,000 luxury hotels in all and ranked them based on a number of criteria, including awards, class ratings (for example, whether a hotel has been awarded four or five stars) and opinions from travel industry experts and hotel guests, based on information from TripAdvisor.

Because of heavy damage to Caribbean islands and hotels there after a series of hurricanes last fall, U.S News did not update its Best Hotels and Best All-Inclusive Resorts lists for the Caribbean in 2018. They’ll keep their 2017 scores and rankings.
