“The AAA Five Diamond Rating is earned through very hard work while also using virtual touch points of text messaging, apps and social media to provide guests with a highly-personalized luxury experience.  Service is a point of pride for these top hotels,” said AAA Hawaii’s Regional Manager Liane Sumida.  “AAA Hawaii congratulates the outstanding AAA Five Diamond establishments, their management and employees who were rated on guest services, in addition to the hotels’ physical attributes, refinement and hospitality.”

 

Travelers can find Diamond Rated establishments and inspector insight in AAA trip planning products: the AAA Mobile® app for tablets and smartphones, the TripTik® Travel Planner and Travel Guides on AAA.com and AAA TourBook® guides available at AAA/CAA offices.

 

“AAA Diamond-rated properties also can be found on the AAA Mobile app,” said Sumida. “The app also can be used by AAA members to map a trip, find discounts, book the hotel reservation and access AAA roadside assistance,” she added.

 

The AAA Diamond rating provides consumers with the broadest coverage of any U.S. rating system, geographically and by number of properties rated.  To be considered for the AAA rating, lodgings (and restaurants) are inspected by one of AAA’s professional evaluators. AAA Five Diamond establishments go through the most extensive review.

 

AAA Hawaii also announced the AAA Four Diamond lodging ratings.  They include 21 local hotels:
