Eighteen hotels within The Palm Beaches in Florida have been awarded Five Diamond and Four Diamond Ratings from AAA for 2018.
The ratings are the highest honours from the travel group, which represents an exclusive designation in the hospitality industry.
Each year, AAA reviews more than 27,000 hotels, with less than half a per cent making the AAA Five Diamond list, and only 5.9 per cent achieving Four Diamond.
“The Palm Beaches’ image as America’s First Resort Destination originated with the legendary hotels and resorts gracing our shores since the 1890s,” said Jorge Pesquera, president and CEO of Discover The Palm Beaches, the official tourism marketing organisation for Palm Beach County.
“This grand tradition of hospitality carries to the present, and is further reaffirmed by the 18 award-winning properties we are so proud to showcase to customers far and wide.”
Pesquera continued: “For those of us fortunate to visit these hotels on a regular basis, it is easy to see why they have become regular recipients of these awards in recognition of their beauty and exemplary service.”
The Palm Beaches are home to nearly 17,000 hotel rooms, ranging from historic resorts to boutique inns. The destination features more than 100 family-friendly attractions, world-class luxury and antique shopping experiences, 125 miles of peaceful waterways for on- or in-the-water activities, more than 150 artificial reefs that line the Atlantic Ocean’s Gulf Stream current, 160 golf courses, award-winning restaurants and a thriving entertainment scene boasting more than 200 art and culture organisations.
