Two West Hollywood hotels were among the 31 in Los Angeles County given AAA’s “Four Diamond” rating.
To earn the rating, hotels must be “refined, stylish with upscale physical attributes, extensive amenities and a high degree of hospitality, service and attention to detail,” according to the Automobile Club if Southern California, which compiles the ratings.
Seven Southland hotels earned the AAA’s top Five Diamond rating, putting them on a list that includes just 121 hotels nationwide.
The area hotels earning the Five Diamond rating were The Beverly Hills Hotel and Bungalows, The Peninsula Beverly Hills, Monarch Beach Resort in Dana Point, The Ritz-Carlton Laguna Niguel, Montage Laguna Beach, The Resort at Pelican Hill in Newport Beach and Four Seasons Hotel Westlake Village.
“Hotels that aim for a AAA Five Diamond rating must differentiate themselves through advanced design concepts, highest quality furnishings and scrupulous attention to guest service,” said Patricia Marenco, the Auto Club’s approved-accommodations supervisor.
