Our Most Luxurious Hotel Is in San Diego

SAN DIEGO (TheStreet) -- If you've ever dreamt of staying in a luxurious Tuscan compound, nestled amid rolling hills and shrouded in peaceful tranquillity, there's no need to travel to Italy.

TripAdvisor users say The Grand Del Mar, a stunning hotel in California, is all that and more.

In fact, TripAdvisor users rated The Grand Del Mar the best hotel in the United States for 2014 and the top luxury hotel in the country.

The hotel got the two awards as part of the 12th annual Travelers' Choice awards, determined based on the reviews and opinions of millions of TripAdvisor travelers from around the globe.

In total, 7,123 unique properties worldwide won Travelers Choice awards this year. Awards are given in the categories of top hotels, bargain, B&Bs and inns, family, luxury, romance and small hotels.

Hotels in Italy got the most awards, with 152 winners. The U.K. had 145 properties recognized, and the U.S. and France each had 144.

All of which means it's not easy earning the distinction of best hotel in any category, let alone best in the United States.

"One of the things we kept seeing and hearing about The Grand Del Mar is that guests just have an amazing experience at the hotel. They also talked a lot about the quality of the hotel and the service the hotel offers its guests," says TripAdvisor's Kevin Carter, senior public relations manager.

Achieving the No. 1 slot is a move up in the rankings for the hotel, which last year was named No. 10 in the U.S. and fifth in the luxury category, Carter says.

It's not hard to understand why guests rave about The Grand Del Mar, which oozes with elegance and the feel of private Mediterranean mansion or compound -- one surrounded by four sparkling swimming pools, tennis courts and San Diego's only Tom Fazio-designed golf course. There's also a Renaissance-inspired spa and a Relais & Chateaux rated restaurant on site.
