Fifteen other hotels earned AAA’s Four Diamond award.

They include: Delray Sands Resort in Highland Beach; Hilton West Palm Beach; Boca Beach Club; Boca Raton Resort & Club; Casa Grandview Historic Luxury Inn Cottages and Suites in West Palm Beach; Delray Beach Marriott; Jupiter Beach Resort & Spa; Palm Beach Marriott Singer Island Beach Resort & Spa; PGA National Resort & Spa; Sabal Palm House Bed and Breakfast Inn in Lake Worth; The Chesterfield Palm Beach; The Brazilian Court Hotel in Palm Beach; Tideline Ocean Resort & Spa in Palm Beach; Waterstone Resort & Marina in Boca Raton; and Wyndham Grand Jupiter at Harbourside Place.

“The Palm Beaches’ image as America’s First Resort Destination originated with the legendary hotels and resorts gracing our shores since the 1890s,” said Jorge Pesquera, president and CEO of Discover The Palm Beaches, the official tourism marketing organization for Palm Beach County. “This grand tradition of hospitality carries to the present, and is further reaffirmed by the 18 award-winning properties we are so proud to showcase to customers far and wide.”

Each year, AAA reviews more than 27,000 hotels, with only 0.4 percent making the AAA Five Diamond list, and only 5.9 percent making the AAA Four Diamond list.
