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.
