2013 AAA Four Diamond Award
Once again Stevenswood Spa Resort was awarded for the 22nd consecutive year the AAA Four Diamond Award. Since 1991 Stevenswood was one of the youngest properties ever to receive this prestigious award and the first in Mendocino county.
Continuing a 77 year tradition, AAA’s professionally trained inspectors use published guidelines to conduct unannounced hotel and restaurant evaluations, assigning approved establishments a rating on a scale of One to Five AAA Diamonds.
ABOUT AAA/CAA DIAMOND RATINGS
AAA rates more properties than any other rating entity. It is the only rating system that covers the U.S., Canada, Mexico and the Caribbean and the only rating system that conducts professional, on-site evaluations using published guidelines weighted by member priorities.
AAA Approved and Diamond Rated hotel and restaurant listings can be found in the downloadable eTourBook® guides and AAA Mobile® app for tablets and smartphones, the TripTik® Travel Planner and Travel Guides on AAA.com, and AAA TourBook® guides available at AAA and CAA offices. Travelers can access information about AAA inspections and Diamond Ratings at AAA.com/Diamonds.
