Travel + Leisure magazine’s August issue was released Friday with lists of the “World’s Best.” Stein Eriksen Lodge was named the second-best resort hotel in U.S. and Canada and the St. Regis Deer Valley was named the 10th best.

In the list of top 100 hotels in the world, Stein Eriksen Lodge was No. 27, St. Regis Deer Valley was No. 71 and Sundance Resort is in an eight-way tie for No. 99.

The rankings are the result of average scores from a questionnaire given to magazine readers. Respondents identified as members of the tourism and travel industries were excluded, the publication’s website said. Accuracy, integrity and confidentiality were ensured by ROI Research Inc. The voting took place Dec. 15, 2010, through March 31, 2011.

According to the website, the hotels’ scores are the indexed averages of respondents’ rankings based on a list of characteristics. For hotels, those included rooms/facilities, location, service, restaurants/food and value. Each area was given a score between 1 and 5.

The readers of Conde Nast Traveler magazine have selected The Spa at Stein Eriksen Lodge in Park City as the best spa in the continental United States.

The Deer Valley resort received a rating of 98.8 in the reader survey, including perfect scores in the staff and treatment categories.

And, as the Conde Nast story observed, “20,000 square feet” the current size of the recently expanded spa at Stein Eriksen Lodge. Perhaps that explains its number one position on the U.S. resorts list.

When this survey began in 1990, the magazine noted, three spas were judged, and the winner received a rating of 82.0. Now there are 250 spas involved.

Following Stein Eriksen Lodge in the rankings were the Westin Riverfront Resort & Spa in Avon, Colo.; Sanderling Resort & Spa in Duck, N.C.; Four Seasons in Las Vegas; and Ritz-Carlton Lodge at Reynolds Plantation in Greensboro, Ga.
