Bad hotel city? Houston hotels are dissed in national rankings

In typical U.S. News & World Report fashion, the ranking machine has devised a foolproof, unbiased methodology to rate the Best Hotels in the USA

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. 

Scale the search down to The Lone Star State and that River Oaks/Uptown hotspot ranks No. 5. Hotel Granduca takes No. 9 on the Texas ranking. 

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. 

Mokara Hotel & Spa in San Antonio, a refuge for relaxation, came in at No. 108 on the list, and the Four Seasons Hotel Austin on Lady Bird Lake took No. 162.
