Ocean House named best resort hotel in continental U.S.


WESTERLY — Travel + Leisure magazine has named Watch Hill’s Ocean House the top-ranked resort hotel in the continental U.S., as well as the No. 5 hotel worldwide in the 2014 World’s Best Awards.

“We are overjoyed to learn that Ocean House is receiving this tremendous honor,” said Daniel Hostettler, president and group managing director, Ocean House Management, LLC. “This accolade is especially rewarding as it is voted on by travelers themselves, and this means that those who have visited our hotel truly see Ocean House as a special place and consider us to be the best in the nation.”

Rhode Island’s first and only Forbes Five-Star and AAA Five-Diamond hotel, Ocean House is the youngest hotel to ever achieve the honor which is based on traveler votes. The 2014 lists mark the 19th year of the annual poll which reveals readers’ favorite hotels, cities, cruise lines and spas. Ocean House moved from the number 10 spot in 2013 to the top spot this year.

“Being selected as the best hotel in the continental United States is both gratifying and humbling, as we know the expectations of our guests will rise even higher,” said Hostettler. “I am sure our committed team will rise to the occasion and achieve even greater levels of success.”

The full results of the Travel + Leisure World’s Best Awards 2014 can be found on their website, and in the August issue of the magazine, on newsstands July 18.

“We are honored to receive recognition from the world’s leading authorities on travel and leisure destinations,” said Hostettler. “While the accolades we value most come from our guests, these awards remind us and our guests of what we are doing right.”
