This is the travel authority's highest rating for hotels and restaurants, and this is the second time the hotel has won the prestigious award. Currently, no other hotels in Vancouver hold this title, making it something extra special that the Shangri-La should be proud of. In fact, only 125 hotels and 53 restaurants hold this title.
Vito Romeo, the hotel's general manager, says, “We are thrilled and honored to receive the Five Diamond recognition once again. This award is a testament to the dedication and commitment of the team at Shangri-La Hotel, Vancouver, who show incredible initiative every day, going above and beyond to ensure every single guest feels welcome in our home.”
To achieve this status, a hotel must provide guests with a truly out-of-this-world-amazing experience - one that even the most discerning traveler would be impressed by.
AAA has been around for about 77 years, and it is the only rating system that extends across the U.S., Canada, Mexico and the Caribbean. AAA inspectors evaluate each site and do an assessment on the property to see if it meets the criteria.

Not only is this a win for the Shangri-La Hotel, but it's also important to the city of Vancouver. Known as one of the most desirable places to live, it's also a very desirable place to visit, and for guests that are looking to make their trip to the City extra glamorous, it's important to have hotels and restaurants that will exceed their expectations.
If you can't afford to stay over night at the Shangri-La, visit MARKET by Jean Georges for a memorable meal or delicious cocktail. The building itself adds a lot to Vancouver's skyline, and it is currently the tallest building in Vancouver. And, the best part is that taking a picture of the impressive building amongst the downtown core with the beautiful mountains in the background doesn't cost a thing!
