AAA Arizona has been serving our state since 1927. Probably originally best known for their automobile services, like 24-hour roadside assistance, they also provide other services. One of those services is a rating system of hotels and restaurants.
Phoenix, Scottsdale and other surrounding communities are well known for providing the traveler with luxurious resort accommodations. Whether you are visiting the Valley of the Sun with your family on holiday, or you are traveling to the Southwest desert for business, you can use this time to escape, relax and enjoy.
AAA rates lodgings throughout the United States based on a scale of 1 diamond through 5 diamonds. Here is their description of the three best rankings. Hotels with one of these three ratings are ones that I'd feel comfortable recommending.
5 Diamonds"Renowned and often world-famous properties with the highest standards of service and hospitality in the industry."
4 Diamonds"Accommodations displaying a high level of service, hospitality and a variety of amenities and upscale facilities."
3 Diamonds"Properties offer a degree of sophistication, often with additional amenities and facilities. A noticeable upgrade in physical attributes, services and comfort."
There are currently five resorts in the Phoenix area that qualified for AAA's highest ranking of 5 diamonds. The number in parentheses next to the resort name denotes the number of years that the property has been listed at this ranking by AAA.
