AAA Diamonds Sparkle at Cape Area Restaurants, Hotels

14 local establishments receive Four Diamond ratings...

AAA Northeast has announced the Massachusetts recipients of the 2020 AAA Five and Four Diamond Awards, honoring the best in dining and lodging in the state.

Just 0.4 percent of the nearly 27,000 AAA Diamond lodgings and 0.2 percent of 30,000 restaurants in North America achieve Five Diamonds, AAA’s highest designation. Seven of those properties are in Massachusetts: restaurants Menton in Boston, first honored in 2011; The Portico by Jeffrey Thompson, in Wheatleigh, in Lenox, 2005; and Topper’s, in the Wauwinet in Nantucket, 2017. Five Diamond hotels are all in Boston: Boston Harbor Hotel, 2019; Four Seasons Hotel, 1988; Mandarin Oriental, 2009; and The Ritz-Carlton, 2010.

“AAA’s Five and Four Diamond establishments consistently exceed expectations by providing their guests highly personalized, memorable experiences,” said Mary Maguire, AAA Northeast Director of Public and Legislative Affairs. “They truly represent the best of the hospitality industry.”

Only 2,400 properties in North America receive the prestigious AAA Four Diamond designation. Massachusetts recipients are:
