VIRGINIA BEACH, VA. (January 31, 2018) - Two hotels in the Tidewater area have received the coveted AAA Four Diamond designation in Williamsburg. The Kingsmill Resort and the Liberty Rose Bed & Breakfast have steadfastly maintained this prestigious rating for more than twenty-four years.

Hotels at this level are committed to providing every guest with a high degree of hospitality, attentive service in upscale surroundings, and typically offer an extensive array of amenities and guest services.  The Kingsmill Resort and the Liberty Rose Bed & Breakfast are part of a select group of establishments within North America. Currently, just 1,676 hotels hold the AAA Four Diamond Rating.

 “AAA is pleased to recognize the Kingsmill Resort and the Liberty Rose Bed & Breakfast as a Four Diamond hotel,” said Georjeane Blumling, vice president of Public Affairs for AAA Tidewater Virginia. “These establishments dedicate a significant amount of attention to the little extras that help ensure a consistent and memorable guest experience. To uphold the exceptionally high standards required on a daily basis to attain this rating is an outstanding achievement.” 

The Kingsmill Resort has held the Four Diamond rating since 1990. This condominium is on the banks of the James River, offers extensive golf facilities, a full service spa, and a new family pool with lazy river, waterslide and a beach area with water sports. Kingsmill Resort has a rich history that can be dated back to 1619 as Kingsmill Plantation. In 1970, August Busch II purchased the land to expand Bush properties. In 1975, Kingsmill Resort became incorporated coinciding with the grand opening of the golf club. Kingsmill Resort was later acquired by Escalante Golf, Inc. 

The Liberty Rose Bed & Breakfast has continued to hold the Four Diamond rating since 1994. This Historic bed and breakfast is a Cape Cod home that sits on a wooded hillside surrounded by gardens.
