All That Glitters

The AAA recently handed out diamonds…and two Palm Beach hotels glittered. The Breakers and Four Seasons Resort both garnered the highest five-diamond rating…again. Rounding out the high scores in Palm Beach County was Eau Palm Beach in Manalapan.

To put this in perspective, Palm Beach County’s coastal giants above accounted for 30% of the 10 five-diamond ratings awarded state-wide by the organization. This is a huge, 5-carat deal.

Three more island hotels made the list with four-diamond scores: The Brazilian Court, The Chesterfield and Tideline Ocean Resort and Spa would all be worth checking into for a visit. Twelve other Palm Beach County hotels earned AAA four-diamond awards as well.

The diamond rating system, which has been used for more than 80 years and encompasses Mexico, the Caribbean and United States, is based upon unannounced inspections by AAA professionals. Inspectors consider things like cleanliness, comfort and hospitality and the pop visits allow for an unbiased review most similar to a traveler’s experience.
