Trust AAA Diamonds to find hotels, restaurants
Reviews on products and services are easy to find these days, but it's not easy to determine which reviews you can trust because you typically don't know the source.
When searching for hotels and restaurants, however, members can rely on AAA's Diamond rating system because it involves on-site inspections that are anonymous and unannounced to ensure a typical guest experience.
From One to Five Diamonds, the ratings show where establishments fit in the spectrum from basic to luxury based on the extensiveness of services, facilities, and amenities. The ratings guide members in selecting establishments to match their needs. Very few earn Five Diamonds, but those that earn Four Diamonds offer a high level of attention to detail.
AAA is proud to salute the following Four Diamond recipients in our area. Only about 6 percent of the 28,000 AAA-rated lodgings and 2 percent of the 30,000 AAA-rated restaurants were awarded the prestigious designation for 2016.
