Eight hotels made it to AAA’s new list of Five Diamond Hotels.

A total of 121 hotels have earned the prestigious status.

"As more mid-scale and even budget properties are adding amenities for comfort and convenience, hotels that aim for a Five Diamond Rating must stay far ahead of the curve to differentiate themselves through advanced design concepts, highest quality furnishings and scrupulous attention to guests’ expectations," said Michael Petrone, director of  AAA Inspections & Diamond Ratings, in a written statement.
