HARTFORD – Ten Connecticut hotels have made this years’ AAA Diamond Rating list after a rigorous review by AAA’s team of professional inspectors. Half  of the hotels are in the greater Hartford region.

Once again Winvian Farm, in Morris, is the only hotel in Connecticut to be awarded AAA’s Five Diamond Award, an award that is given to fewer than half a percent of the 28,000 properties approved by AAA.

Only about 1,500 hotels made the Four Diamond Rating list in 2016 and about 100 of them are new to the list, including The Mayflower Grace in Washington.

Eight other Connecticut hotels have retained their AAA Four Diamond status including:

• The Homestead Inn, Greenwich (since 2004)
• Marriott Hartford Downtown (since 2006)
• Grand Pequot Tower at Foxwoods Resort Casino, Mashantucket (since 2003)
• The Fox Tower, Mashantucket (since 2009)
• Hyatt Regency Greenwich, Old Greenwich (since 2012)
• Saybrook Point Inn & Spa, Old Saybrook (since 2002)
• Delamar Southport, Southport (since 2011)
• Mohegan Sun, Uncasville (since 2002)

For 80 years, AAA has used professional inspectors to conduct in-person property evaluations. AAA offers the only rating system using comprehensive, on-site professional hotel and restaurant evaluations guided by member priorities. With a far greater inventory than any other rating entity, AAA’s rating system covers the United States, Canada, Mexico and the Caribbean.

“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 spokesperson Amy Parmenter in a statement. “It’s a seal of approval unlike any other”.
