Hotels.com compiled a list of the 10 most popular travel destinations in the U.S. and boutique hotels that received a rating of 4.5 or higher out of a possible top score of 5.

1906 Lodge in Coronado and the Fairmont Grand Del Mar in San Diego were top picks for the San Diego area. Fairmont only recently took over the hotel that also was TripAdvisor's top hotel in 2014; it's spa won a five-star rating from Forbes this year too.
