The 11th annual “Best Hotels” rankings evaluate more than 30,000 luxury properties across the United States, Europe, Bermuda, Mexico, Canada and the Caribbean. The methodology considers a hotel’s star rating and both expert and guest sentiment by collecting annual awards from distinguished travel publications and TripAdvisor user scores, the combination of which helps determine each hotel’s rank.

“The travel industry has faced numerous challenges over the past year, emphasizing the need to support and recognize hotels that continue to maintain exemplary standards,” said Zach Watson, travel editor at U.S. News, in a statement. “This year’s list offers a reliable guide for travelers to use when planning their next getaway, whether that’s in a few months or next year.”

Hotel du Pont received this prestigious award on the heels of its new restaurant, Le Cavalier, receiving the “Best Historic Restaurant Award” from Historic Hotels of America in December. The restaurant was bestowed the award for its thoughtful re-concepting of the original Green Room. The same month, Travel + Leisure magazine featured the state of Delaware in its list of “50 Best Places to Travel in 2021,” specifically citing the Hotel du Pont and Le Cavalier as must visit destinations for readers.

“We are honored to see the hotel and the city of Wilmington receive such positive recognition,” Hotel du Pont Managing Director Greg Kavanagh said in a statement. “A national spotlight is on Wilmington right now. As we look ahead to safe travel for 2021 and beyond, our team eagerly awaits welcoming visitors from near and far to the hotel.”
