“AAA's requirements for a Four Diamond rating are rigorous, and those that achieve this designation are among the finest hotels and restaurants in the world,” said David E. Parsons, president and CEO of AAA Carolinas. “Only 3.4 percent of the more than 59,000 annual inspections conducted nationally result in a Four Diamond rating.”
The AAA Four Diamond Awards are given out in four separate ceremonies throughout the Carolinas. A total of 69 hotels and 29 restaurants in North and South Carolina have achieved this rating.
AAA gives the Four Diamond Awards annually to qualified hotels and restaurants in North America. More than 2,000 properties nationally earn the Four Diamond ratings after specially trained evaluators conduct anonymous overnight stays or dine incognito.
Lodgings include eight different classifications, such as bed and breakfast, hotel, cottage and country inn with four sub-classifications such as historic, classic, resort and casino. Restaurants have varying cuisines and ambiances, with more than 100 different categories.
Each restaurant and lodging that receives any level of diamond rating from AAA is listed in AAA's TourBooks, which are distributed for free to any of the organization's 53 million members nationwide.
