Only three Hampton Roads hotels, including Virginia Beach’s Cavalier Hotel, gained coveted ratings from AAA’s annual Diamond Ratings for hotels.
The organization's ratings are just one measure of the hotels that are the best in the business — 27,000 were inspected across the country but only a handful receive high ratings. The 2019 selections were released on Thursday.
The Cavalier, an Autograph Collection Hotel, received a Four Diamond Rating, which is awarded to just 1,722 hotels — 6.3 percent of those inspected across the country. This rating is given to hotels that “are committed to providing every guest with a high degree of hospitality, attentive service in upscale surroundings, and typically offer an extensive array of amenities and guest services,” according to an AAA news release.
