Unfortunately, Houston doesn't fare so well in the 2013 edition of the nationwide list. Only one local lodging — the St. Regis Houston — is counted among the 164 hotels, barely sliding in at No. 152.
Those visiting the Dallas area seem to stay with more swank, though: The Ritz-Carlton Dallas ranks No. 18 on the national list, the Rosewood Mansion on Turtle Creek ranks No. 33 and the Four Seasons Resort and Club Dallas at Las Colinas in Irving ranks No. 51.
