Pismo Beach, California (February 15, 2012) - The Dolphin Bay Spa & Resort has earned recognition as one of the 2012 Best Hotels in California by the prestigious national publication, U.S. News & World Report. Dolphin Bay Spa & Resort was among the top 3% of the 3,535 luxury hotels evaluated in California by U.S. News & World Report.

U.S. News & World Report's 2012 Best Hotels rankings recognize hotels with luxurious amenities, superior service, and opulent decor. To create the 2012 rankings, U.S. News & World Report analyzed the strength of accolades and ratings provided by both travel experts and discerning consumers alike. Hotels named "Best" in their destination are typically the properties that rank in the top 33 percent of all 4 and 5 star hotels in their region.

"Our team couldn't be more pleased to have been recognized by such a prominent publication. To have been noted in the top 3% of California hotels is truly an honor," says Chris Ohara, Director of Sales & Marketing for the resort.

According to the US News & World Report, the Dolphin Bay Resort & Spa was chosen because "The beauty of the Dolphin Bay Resort & Spa in Pismo Beach goes undisputed. The backdrop against the jagged Pacific Ocean coastline is breathtaking yet soothing. Guests praise the extraordinarily spacious rooms with their full kitchens, large windows, dining rooms and private terraces or patios.
