AAA announces Utah Four-Diamond award-winners

For the second year in a row, 26 Utah hotels and restaurants have received AAA’s prestigious Four Diamond Award. The AAA Four Diamond Awards recognize properties that are "a cut above" the competition in service and quality.

Park City area establishments who received the Four Diamond Award for lodging, included Hotel Park City, The Grand Summit Resort Hotel and the Silver King Hotel.

The Goldener Hirsch and The Glitretind, two area restaurants, were also honored with AAA’s Four-Diamond rating.

To be considered for AAA approval and rating, lodgings and restaurants undergo a torough inspection by one of AAA’s full-time professional evaluators. AAA’s rating system of one to five diamonds is published in the AAA TourBooks and is designed to help members know what to expect from restaurants and lodgings, from services available to price.
