U.S. News & World Report recently announced its Best Hotels rankings for 2021.

The rankings evaluate more than 30,000 luxury hotels and resorts across the USA, Europe, Canada, Mexico, Bermuda and the Caribbean. The media release notes that despite the current limitations faced by the global travel industry, “these hotels continue to operate at the top of their class for luxury and hospitality,” making the recognition even more meaningful due to the challenging times.

“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,” Zach Watson, travel editor at U.S. News, is quoted as saying. “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.”

Four Seasons Resort Lanai tops the list as the Best Hotel in the USA, “impressing both experts and travelers with its numerous amenities, ranging from picturesque pools and a world-class golf course to daily activities like sailing, beachfront yoga and cultural tours.” Second place goes to Acqualina Resort & Residences on the Beach in Sunny Isles Beach, Florida, followed by The Peninsula Chicago at No. 3. “These hotels stand out due to their exceptional customer service, well-maintained grounds, luxuriously comfortable accommodations and wealth of on-site amenities,” says the release.

The Ritz-Carlton Montreal earned the top spot in Canada, Rosewood Mayakoba came in No. 1 in Mexico; and Cheval Blanc St-Barth Isle de France was named the best hotel in the Caribbean.

U.S. News scores luxury hotels using a methodology that combines each hotel’s industry awards with its star rating and guest reviews.
