VIRGINIA BEACH, VA. (January 31, 2018) – AAA is proud to announce the 2019 Five and Four Diamond Rating for hotels in Hampton Roads. Currently, just 1,722 hotels hold the AAA Four Diamond Rating, representing 6.3 percent of the hotels inspected. Only 121 hotels in the United States have received the Five Diamond Rating. This exclusive group represents just 0.4 percent of the AAA Inspected and Approved hotels across North America. 


From 121 hotels chosen in the United States, Hampton Roads has the honor of having a Five Diamond Rating in their backyard. The Williamsburg Inn in Williamsburg has once again obtained the coveted rating. Hotels at this level employ experienced, highly qualified staff to provide the custom service their guests expect, according to AAA. These establishments deliver the ultimate in luxury, sophistication and comfort with extraordinary physical attributes, meticulous personalized service, extensive amenities and impeccable standards of excellence 


The newest addition to the AAA Four Diamond Hotel list is The Cavalier, an Autograph Collection Hotel in Virginia Beach. The Kingsmill Resort has continued to maintain the AAA Four Diamond rating for more than twenty-eight 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.


“AAA is pleased to recognize the Five Diamond and Four Diamond hotels,” 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.”
