Discover boutique hotels in United States

Whether you’re looking for snow-covered peaks and sprawling national parks, frenetic big cities or historic cobblestoned towns, dramatic coastline or red sand deserts, America has a holiday for you. Ride horseback through big sky country, hit the slopes in Colorado or Utah, and explore the concrete jungle of New York. Wander Austin for live music, wander up and down San Francisco’s famous hills, live out your great American road trip, or take to the beaches of Aloha state Hawaii. You’ll likely work up an appetite with all that adventure, so it’s lucky for you that the United States is the home of Manhattan bagels, Maine lobster, southern barbecue, fluffy beignets, crisp California wines, strong Portland coffee and hoppy midwestern microbrews.

Destinations in United States

  • It's not all cacti and golf courses: Arizona has excellent art scenes, beautiful hiking paths, and a thriving dining culture in Phoenix, Scottsdale and Tuscan.
  • Beyond the seashores and swimming pools, the Golden State also holds mammoth redwoods, snow-capped peaks and scorched desert. Hop in a convertible and cruise Highway 1 to see it all.
  • Snow bunnies rule the Rocky Mountains in winter, but warmer weather brings mountain bikers, white-water rafters and hikers to towns such as Aspen, Vail, Breckenridge and Telluride.
  • Lush and leafy, the Connecticut River Valley is a colonial escape from New York City. Weekend visitors boat across the Long Island Sound, ride horses through bucolic Litchfield Hills and visit tiny river towns, including Essex and Old Lime.
  • The Sunshine State takes its nickname seriously. Take advantage of Florida's warm weather to strip down and sun in Miami or boat through the marshy Everglades. No matter what you do, start the day with a glass of Florida orange juice.
  • Set your watch to island time in Hawaii, where locals wake before dawn to catch waves before work on the record-breaking North Shore. The Rainbow State is a paradise of tropical colours, from inky black-sand beaches to the active volcanoes' fiery lava.
  • Once a haven for crooked politicians, Illinois now draws visitors for the towering skyline of Chicago, and the scenic Great Lakes. The state also houses more than 60 state parks and the boyhood home to the least crooked of them all: honest Abe Lincoln.
  • Baton Rouge may be Louisiana’s capital, but New Orleans is its beating heart, with a Francophile culture of cafes, top-notch cuisine and jazz clubs. The state also holds mossy Civil War-era plantations and strong Creole and Cajun communities.
  • No matter the season, from Kennebunkport to Bar Harbor from Acadia to Baxter State Park, this natural wonderland fulfills the state slogan’s promise of 'Vacationland'.
  • Maritime adventure awaits in Maryland. Sail into the bustling Baltimore harbor for a visit to Charm City, or cruise through the Chesapeake to visit the secluded coastal retreats of the Eastern Shore.
  • Since the pilgrims arrived at Plymouth Rock, Massachusetts has been a pillar of patriotism. Stroll the freedom trail in Boston, visit the shutter-clad splendour of Nantucket and Martha’s Vineyard or spot spectacular fall foliage in the Berkshires.
  • The Wild West thrives in the vast, openness of Montana. Horse-lovers saddle up for days-long rides through the canyons. Fishermen converge on the bountiful four rivers. And have we mentioned Glacier National Park and iconic Yellowstone?
  • Retro boardwalks, the Jersey Shore’s sparkling Atlantic waters, and the best Italian-American food in the country prove that there’s much more to New Jersey than reality television.
  • Talk about a gem in the desert: the land of Georgia O'Keefe has spectacular turquoise mines on a trail that runs from Albuquerque to Santa Fe.
  • Manhattan alone could keep visitors busy for years with Broadway shows, world-class dining and Madison Avenue shopping. Upstate, Hudson River Valley is a haven for arts and antiques, and the Hamptons are an A-list beach playground.
  • Oregon is an ecologist’s dream canvas of mountains, rugged coastlines and lush forests. In Portland, residents take advantage of those resources to create a strong local food and indie scene, while Willamette Valley has a wine scene to rival Napa’s.
  • Pennsylvania has a healthy helping of American history at its heart: a colonial origin and a starring role in the nation’s start. We expect Lin-Manuel Miranda to write its story any day now…
  • Though small, Rhode Island packs plenty of adventures for visitors. Sail into Newport to visit the coastal mansions. Providence, home to Brown University, is a scenic New England town with a thriving arts scene.
  • Go to South Carolina for the Spanish moss and antebellum architecture, but stay for the innovative culinary scene and miles of beaches in this proud Southern state.
  • Everything really is bigger in the Lone Star State. Expect great things from chilli-packed Tex-Mex dishes, one of the country’s best indie music scenes in Austin, and a vast and seemingly endless sprawl through the ranges and out to the Rio Grande.
  • Outside Salt Lake City, Utah is a nature-lover’s paradise. The Colorado River burrows through ruddy canyons and opens into Lake Powell. Up in the mountains, resorts like Deer Valley, Park City and Alta lure powder-seekers from around the world.
  • When you think of New England’s picturesque farmhouses, rolling hills and vibrantly coloured autumnal leaves, it’s Vermont you have in mind. With snow-covered mountains in winter and lush forests in summer, there’s a reason to relax here any time of year.
  • Washington is so much more than its annual rainfall averages. Explore the lush, green Olympic Peninsula, the islands of the Puget Sound and the whale-surrounded San Juan Mountains.
  • Proud, historic and unexpectedly alive with greenery, Washington DC is much more than the linchpin of governmental machinery; it’s a cultural hotbed of free museums and monuments.
  • Open ranges, cowboys and the occasional passing moose help keep Wyoming about as removed from urban sprawl as anywhere in America. Check into a log cabin in Jackson Hole by the majestic Grand Tetons or visit spectacular Yellowstone.
