New Diamond Designations

New Diamond Designations For TN Hotels & Restaurants
Thirteen Hotels And Restaurants

For more than 80 years, AAA has conducted professional, in-person property inspections and published the results for member travelers. Hotels and restaurants must meet AAA’s high standards of cleanliness, comfort and hospitality to be part of the esteemed AAA Diamond Program, then they are assigned a designation of either Approved, Three Diamond, Four Diamond or Five Diamond. More diamonds indicate more elaborate surroundings and attention from service staff.
“AAA Diamonds give travelers a reliable way to find hotels and restaurants that meet AAA’s quality standards and provide the type of experience appropriate for their needs”, said Megan Cooper, spokesperson, AAA – The Auto Club Group.
To be included in the AAA Diamond Program, properties must pass an unannounced, on-site evaluation. To ensure a typical guest experience, hotels and restaurants aren’t told in advance when inspectors are coming. The comprehensive AAA Requirements & Diamond Guidelines for hotels and restaurants serve as the blueprint for properties to earn Diamonds. These were updated in January 2020 to reflect the latest AAA member priorities and industry trends. For more information, visit
Thirteen hotels and restaurants in Tennessee have earned the coveted Four Diamond Designation this year. AAA Four Diamond hotels and restaurants are an exclusive group. They must be refined and stylish with upscale physical attributes, extensive amenities and a high degree of hospitality, service and attention to detail.
