Just what is the AAA Five Diamond Award?
By definition, the AAA Five Diamond Award is indicative of ultimate luxury, sophistication and comfort with extraordinary physical attributes, meticulous personalized service, extensive amenities and impeccable standards of excellence. This prestigious rating is achieved by less than one-half of one percent of all AAA approved properties, thus denoting a true destination for the luxury-oriented. Inspectors make multiple unannounced visits to potential hotels, ensuring that each maintains a consistent level of quality, no matter what the season or occasion.
