Each year, the American Automobile Association publishes an updated list of the best hotels and resorts in North America. The Auto Club awards its top ranking, the coveted Five Diamond rating, to the most exclusive and luxurious hotels, resorts and spas.
If your business serves clients who expect, and can afford, the very best accommodations, you will want to review our lists of AAA Five Diamond properties.
But, not every destination has a Five Diamond hotel, and not every client prefers ultimate luxury to mere excellence.
The AAA list of Four Diamond properties is much larger than the Five Diamond list. There are nearly as many Four Diamond properties in the State of California alone as there are Five Diamond properties in the entire North American continent. Four Diamond Hotels are an excellent place to start when you are looking for hotels that you can recommend with confidence to your clients.
Since California is the most popular destination for tourists in the US, this list should make a useful resource.
