Chateau on the Lake Resort & Spa in Branson: Named to U.S. News & World Report’s “2018 Best Hotels” List

Chateau on the Lake Resort, Spa & Convention Center has received another honor, as it was named “#1 Best Missouri Resort” in the prestigious U.S. News & World Report “2018 Best Hotels” rankings. Situated in Missouri’s picturesque Ozark Mountains, just minutes from Branson’s many attractions and shows, the lakefront resort also was recently recognized with the acclaimed AAA Four Diamond rating for the 20th consecutive year.

U.S. News & World Report’s eight annual “Best Hotels” rankings evaluated more than 24,000 luxury properties across the United States, Europe, Canada, Bermuda and Mexico. The comprehensive methodology of the rankings centered on three components:  reputation among professional travel experts, guest reviews and hotel class rankings.

“This is an outstanding honor, for which we are very proud,” said Chateau on the Lake Resort & Spa’s General Manager John Parker. “It recognizes Chateau on the Lake as thefinest resort in Missouri, for many reasons, including our truly picturesque lakeside setting and views, impressive recreational and dining options, as well as beautiful accommodations. Additionally, I would like to recognize our wonderful Chateau Team for the first-class service they provide. We are honored to be recognized with this very prestigious award.”

Providing marvelous vistas of Table Rock Lake, lush gardens, and the mountains, the 301-room resort also offers an array of recreational options on-site, including a 14,000-square-foot full-service spa, Chateau Marina, Crawdaddies Kids Club, and an indoor and outdoor pool, to name a few. In addition, the resort features 43,500 square feet of meeting space and many scenic outdoor venues.

Owned and managed by John Q. Hammons Hotels & Resorts, the resort also features a 10-story sky-lit atrium that has meandering streams brimming with colorful Koi fish, plus a charming library lounge with a stone fireplace.

Described as the “Live Music Show Capital of America,” Branson offers more than 80 live shows per day during the season and a variety of attractions. This includes Silver Dollar City (reopening March 14, 2018), the Titanic Museum Attraction, and The Branson Landing in the heart of downtown, which features festivals, musical events, a variety of waterfront dining options, and 400,000 sq. ft. of shops, boutiques, galleries and specialty gift shops.
