Best customer service: The Westin, in Washington DC. The front desk manager, Orlando, spent 20 minutes with us, explaining how to get to various places and what is great to see. It made us even more excited to see the city.
Best historic hotel: This one was a bit of a competition. The Omni Parker Hotel in Boston was fantastic, but the overall winner is the La Posada in Winslow, Arizona. The last of the great railway hotels, it has fantastic rooms and great art.
Best moderate hotel: The quality inn and suites are fantastic. They have great rooms, which are big and well equipped and you can get great rates.
Best non-hotel accommodation: the Spring Creek Ranch in Jackson, Wyoming is awesome. The rooms are comfortable and well-equipped, the environment is great and they have free cookies!
Best cheaper accommodation: La Quinta Inns are quite good. The rooms are clean, customer service is good and they are well located.
Best location: the Anaheim Camelot Inn is located across the road from Disneyland, is affordable and has good rooms.
