Travel + Leisure Names RI’s Ocean House + Weekapaug Inn Tops in US

Thursday, October 17, 2013

 

Ocean House once again makes Travel + Leisure's World's Best listing, being named #10 resort in the Continental US.

Rhode Island's sister properties--Watch Hill's Ocean House and Westerly's Weekapaug Inn--are once again in the high-wattage spotlight of luxury travel, having been named by Travel + Leisure the #10 resort and #5 inn, respectively, in the Continental US in the prestigious magazine's World's Best Awards for 2013. 

While Ocean House is a veteran of T+L's annual reader's poll, this is the first appearance for the Weekapaug Inn, which reopened under Ocean House's management, last October.

Ocean House is "is grand as ever," says T+L. "Expansive decks and manicured croquet lawns are a nod to old-world glamour, while the light-filled 49 guest rooms and 22 private villas have modern bathrooms (oversize soaking tubs; marble tiles) and custom-made dark wood furnishings. On the ground floor there's the farm-to-table Seasons restaurant, with a veranda overlooking a private white-sand beach-the perfect spot to idle away an afternoon, cocktail in hand. What more could you want for a summer getaway?" 

Perhaps because of its debut on the World's Best list, a summary of Weekapaug's charms was not yet available on the Travel + Leisure website.

Travelers name the best

T+L's annual ranking, which also names top destinations, airlines, cruise lines, river cruises, even car-rental companies, reflects the votes of its travel-savvy readers. 

Westerly's Weekapaug Inn, under the management of Ocean House, debuted this year on T+L's top inns in the Continental US list at #5.

A handful of other New England properties were honored on T+L's US ranking lists, which include large city hotels, small city hotels, resorts and inns. Three Boston hotels were named to the large city hotel list: #9 Boston Harbor Hotel, #45 Lenox Hotel, and #49 Taj. One small city hotel, Boston's XV Beacon, was the only New England property on T+L's list. Sharing top resort honors with Ocean House were #8 White Elephant on Nantucket, and #18 Stowe Mountain Lodge, in Vermont. 

Weekapaug Inn was the sole New England property to make T+L's list for 2013.

Insider Picks + Tips from T+L

Travel + Leisure picked Ocean House's Grand Deluxe Room 301 as its highlighted "room to book," for its "blue-tiled fireplace, freestanding bathtub with ocean views, and private terrace." And for T+L's inside tip for Ocean House: "Consider a visit in the off-season—moody skies, long walks on the empty beach, and cozy treatments at OH! Spa make for easy romance."
