Choice Deals at 'Choice' Resorts

Conde Nast Traveler just released its annual Readers' Choice Awards, rating everything from cities to cruise lines.

For hotels and resorts, spots on this list are coveted. Out of the 8 million votes cast, the cream of the crop have risen to the top based on discerning traveler feedback.   

At Travelzoo we are selective about our hotel choices, and love unearthing a hot offer. It’s especially rewarding when we negotiate deals at some of the best resorts in the world.

Here are our current favorite deals from the Top 150 U.S. resorts list: 

No. 25 - Four Seasons Jackson Hole: Topping the charts is this AAA 5-Diamond resort nestled right at the base of the Grand Teton Mountains. With their third-night-free offer, average nightly rates drop below $200 (an unheard-of $197, to be exact) to stay at this ski-in/ski-out resort during the start of ski season. The three-night minimum shouldn’t be a problem, considering all the activities in town or around the resort to stay busy. In fact, you might even beg to stay longer.  

No. 26 - Viceroy Snowmass: This posh Aspen retreat rarely discounts rooms, but act quickly and you can experience luxury for less. This package not only includes an overnight stay in a suite with a fireplace and private deck, but also a 3-course dinner for two. Normally this combination would cost $455, but this exclusive deal can be purchased for $229. 

No. 63 - Chatham Bars Inn: This Leading Hotel of the World has long been a top pick for New Englanders looking for a luxe escape in Cape Cod. Now travelers can tuck into a room in the turn-of-the-century main inn or a shingle cottage for as little as $139 per night. Use the 40% savings on current rates to splurge on a spa treatment. 

No. 107 - The Homestead: Rising majestically from the Allegheny Mountains, this resort is known as the ‘Grande Dame’ of Virginia. It’s played host to presidents and royalty since 1776, and now you too can walk these same halls for $269 – a 58% savings on regular pricing. This two-night package also includes your choice of two activities (one per person) such as golf, ice skating, skeet shooting and more.  

No. 127 - Bacara Resort & Spa: Sneak off for a stay at this 5-star Santa Barbara resort for $229 per night – a steal considering you would usually pay double this price. Spend the day relaxing by one of three zero-edge saline pools with ocean views, or indulge in treatments at the 42,000-square-foot, four-level spa rated 4 stars by Forbes.

These limited-time offers don't last long, so act fast to snap up a deal. Then keep an eye on future Top 20 lists to see which top-rated resorts we are featuring next.
