AAA announces 2011 Five Diamond Hotels
Most have had the 5 Diamond status for years but there are 15 new hotels added this year and all but 4 of the 15 are in the US. I thought it was interesting that New York is no longer the leader with the most 5 Diamond hotels. Vegas has taken over the lead with 9 Five Diamond hotels. Lots of Ritz-Carlton's on the list.
I've seen some of these offered here on LL.
To go along with a luxurious hotel stay, here is the 2011 Five Diamond Restaurant List. In the US only 1 new restaurant was added on the list. AAA inspects properties in Canada, the Caribbean & Mexico. The 3 new ones this year:
- Lumiere in Vancouver
- Carolina at the St Regis in Punta Mita
- Winvian in Morris, CT
