Three Delaware Restaurants Earn AAA Diamond Awards

Credit is due to the creative chefs, complex menus and staff at Hotel du Pont, Boardwalk Plaza Hotel and Dover Downs Hotel & Casino.



Hotel du Pont

What do the Hotel du Pont and its Green Room, Boardwalk Plaza Hotel and Dover Downs Hotel & Casino have in common? They’re all AAA Four Diamond Award recipients for 2014. The AAA Four and Five Diamond Ratings are the travel authority’s highest designations for hotels and restaurants. “Four-Diamond hotels and restaurants provide guests with a personalized experience and attentive service in comfortable, high quality surroundings,” says Jim Lardear, director of public and government affairs for AAA Mid-Atlantic. “These establishments consistently exceed the expectations of the most discriminating traveler—the AAA inspector. We are proud to have these dedicated businesses in our region.” Establishments at the Four- and Five-Diamond rating levels make up just 3.9 percent and 0.3 percent, respectively, of the 59,000 AAA-approved hotels and restaurants. Restaurants at this rating level offer a distinctive fine dining experience. They feature highly creative chefs, complex menus, fresh top-quality ingredients and knowledgeable staff. Across the United States, Canada, Mexico and the Caribbean, they are the upper echelon of the hospitality industry. What’s more, the Green Room has won the honor for 29 years and the Hotel du Pont 21 years. Boardwalk Plaza in Rehoboth Beach has charted 22 years. We offer our congratulations to all.
