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.    

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

Four Diamond properties offer upscale amenities and distinctive fine dining.   

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.
