Westerly — According to Travel and Leisure Magazine's just-released 2014 rankings, the fifth-best hotel in the world is the Ocean House in Watch Hill.

The magazine has also named the four-year-old luxury resort the best resort in the continental United States.

The four properties ranked ahead of the Ocean House were the Triple Creek Ranch, Darby, Mont.; Nayara Springs, La Fortuna, Costa Rica; Four Seasons Hotel Gresham Palace, Budapest; and the Southern Ocean Lodge, Kangaroo Island, Australia.

"A Victorian oceanfront hotel renovated to the tune of $146 million, this 1868 property is as grand as ever. ... Consider visiting in the off season-moody skies, long walks on the private beach, and cozy treatments at the hotel spa make for a romantic stay," writes the magazine.
