 The Ocean House in Westerly has been named the No. 1 resort in the continental US on the Travel + Leisure Worlds Best Awards 2014, and the 5th hotel in the world. Since coming in 95th in 2013, the Ocean House has jumped 90 spots on the list in the span of just a year.

Going on its 19th year, the list is determined by traveler votes.

Originally a built in the Civil War 136 years ago, the property was rebuilt for $140 million and reopened in 2010, making them the youngest hotel to achieve the status of No. 1 resort in the US.

Daniel Hostettler, President and Group Managing Director of Ocean House Management, LLC, says, “We are overjoyed to learn that the Ocean House is receiving the tremendous honor. This accolade is especially rewarding as it is voted on by travelers themselves, and this means that those who have visited our hotel truly see Ocean Hotel as a special place and consider us to be the best in the nation, and even the world.”

The Ocean House is Rhode Islands only Forbes Five-Star and AAA Five-Diamond hotel.
