Five local hotels made AAA's annual prestigious list of Four and Five Diamond Hotels.
The list includes the Cincinnatian, the area's longest-tenured AAA Four Diamond hotel, with its 19th award.
To other Four Diamond hotels are:
21c Museum Hotel Cincinnati (2014)
Hilton Cincinnati Netherland Plaza (2003)
Renaissance Cincinnati Downtown (2014)
The Westin Cincinnati (2003)
“The AAA Diamond Rating insures a consistent standard of excellence that goes above and beyond customer driven ratings which are much more subjective” says AAA spokeswoman Cheryl Parker. “ Only 5.7 percent of hotels in North America earned the AAA Four Diamond rating this year.”
The area’s AAA Diamond award winning restaurants will be announced in February.
