AAA unveils the 5-Diamond and 4-Diamond properties of 2022. These hotels and restaurants represent the best of the best in lodging and dining.  

5-Diamond properties offer ultimate luxury and leading-edge cuisine. 

4-Diamond properties offer upscale amenities and distinctive fine dining. 

Diamond designations reflect AAA Inspectors’ commitment to quality and consistency in the hospitality industry. Diamond Inspectors are trained professionals who travel across North America to conduct unannounced, independent, in-person property inspections.  

The 4Cs of AAA Diamonds  

Cleanliness: AAA hotel inspections include ATP surface testing, the same technology used to verify cleanliness in the healthcare and food service industries. 

Comfort: Inspectors evaluate a property’s quality of experience, range of amenities, and level of hospitality. 

Cuisine: Diamond restaurants are assessed on their food, service, and vibe. Inspectors dine at these properties anonymously. 

Consistency: AAA Diamond properties – no matter the designation – have one thing in common: consistency. Unlike subjective star reviews, Diamond inspections rely on published guidelines based on industry standards.
