U.S. News & World Report, a nationally recognized publisher of consumer advice and information, just released their 2018 “Best Hotels” awards recognizing the Boulders Resort & Spa  as one of the “Best Hotels in Arizona.” This annual evaluation of hotels, that offer high-quality amenities and exceptional experiences, highly ranks the Boulders Resort based on their exceptional reputation and very high marks from hotel guests and travel writers that applaud the resort’s unpretentious ambience in the rugged Sonoran desert.  The Boulders Resort & Spa has earned a spot on U.S. News’s most selective list since 2011.

The editor writes “At this remote location, the Boulders Resort & Spa in Carefree, Arizona looks out over miles of cacti and rugged mountains. When you’re not admiring the views from your private patio or balcony, order room service and curl up in front of your wood-burning fireplace. You can also play golf on one of two courses, lounge by one of four pools or grab a bite to eat at one of five restaurants. However, according to recent visitors, you’d be remiss if you stayed here and didn’t indulge in a treatment at the massive on-site spa. And because of the resort’s ties to Hilton Hotels, members of the Hilton Honors loyalty program can use points to pay for rooms – that means additional cash to invest in massages and facials.” 

The Best Hotels methodology combines a hotel’s industry accolades with expert and guest reviews and hotel class ratings. U.S. News scored luxury hotels, identifying the top 10 percent in the United States, Canada, Mexico and the Caribbean with Gold badges and the top 30 percent within specific markets with Silver badges. The rankings feature over 2,500 hotels across the United States, Canada, Mexico and the Caribbean.  For more information about the 2018 Best Hotels, visit http://travel.usnews.com/Hotels.
