CAA Four Diamond Awards

Four Diamond Awards

CAA/AAA's Diamond rating system helps take the guess work out of deciding on accommodations and restaurants.

Rating more properties than any other entity, CAA/AAA's highly-respected Diamond Awards is the only evaluation system for lodgings and restaurants that covers all of Canada, the United States, Mexico and the Caribbean. To make sure the ratings stay current and accurate, professionally-trained CAA/AAA inspectors use published guidelines to evaluate establishments on an annual basis.

To be eligible for assessment, properties must meet basic requirements during an unannounced inspection. Once designated as 'CAA/AAA Approved', inspectors assign each establishment with a rating of One to Five Diamonds based on the extensiveness of service, quality of facilities and available amenities.

For 2015, CAA North & East Ontario is proud to recognize the following establishments from the region that have been named to the prestigious CAA/AAA Four Diamonds list:

  • Beckta Dining & Wine
  • Restaurant E18hteen
  • Brookstreet Hotel
  • Fairmont Château Laurier
