Rancho Valencia Resort & Spa was recently awarded the top spot for U.S. News & World Report’s 2019 Best Hotel Rankings. Named the No. 1 Best Resort and Best Hotel in California, Rancho Valencia was also awarded a Gold Badge for placing among the top ten-percent of all ranked hotels in the country, specifically the No. 5 Best Resort in the U.S. and No. 9 Best Hotel in the U.S.
In conjunction with the luxury hotel and resorts industry accolades and class ratings, the Best Hotels methodology relies on expert and guest reviews to determine each property’s national ranking, identifying luxury hotels in the top ten-percent in the United States, Canada, Mexico and the Caribbean with Gold badges, and the top 30-percent within specific markets with Silver badges.
“We are thrilled to have been named the number one resort and hotel in California,” said Rancho Valencia’s General Manager, Coni Thornburg. “We take tremendous pride in nurturing a luxury experience that exceeds expectations of the most seasoned traveler through our dedication of understanding the art of hospitality. We have a lot in store for 2019, including our 30th anniversary, and cannot wait to share what’s next for Rancho Valencia.”Coni Thornburg, General Manager, Rancho Valencia
