ABOUT AAA DIAMOND RATINGS
AAA began field inspections of lodgings and restaurants in 1937 and introduced a formal rating system for accommodations in 1963. The early rating system evolved into the Diamond Rating System for lodgings in 1976 and was rolled out for restaurants between 1986 and 1991. Professionally trained AAA/CAA inspectors use published guidelines to evaluate and rate properties as a service to members.
AAA rates more properties than any other rating entity and is the only rating system that covers the United States, Canada, Mexico and the Caribbean. It is one of only two that conduct physical, on-site evaluations. AAA/CAA Approved lodgings and restaurants are assigned a rating of One to Five Diamonds. For more information about Diamond Ratings and a complete list of Four and Five Diamond Lodging and Restaurants, visit AAA.com/News.
To be eligible for evaluation, lodgings must meet basic requirements for cleanliness, comfort and security. Those that pass inspection during an unannounced evaluation are designated as a AAA Approved hotel. Finally, the inspector assigns a rating of One to Five Diamonds based on the extensiveness of services, facilities and amenities - from basic, no-frills lodgings to luxurious, world-class accommodations. The ratings help travelers choose establishments suited to their needs and expectations.
