AAA Michigan in Dearborn has announced its 2019 award-winning hotels and restaurants across the state that earned the four-diamond rating during the past 12 months.
The awards went to 18 hotels and four restaurants in Michigan. In metro Detroit, the hotels include the Townsend Hotel in Birmingham, The Westin Book Cadillac Detroit, MGM Grand Detroit, MotorCity Casino Hotel, and Greektown Casino-Hotel in Detroit, The Inn at St. John’s in Plymouth Township, Royal Park Hotel in downtown Rochester, Westin Detroit Metropolitan Airport in Romulus, and the Dearborn Inn and The Henry, Autograph Collection, both in Dearborn.

The four-star restaurants include the Rugby Grill at the Townsend Hotel in Birmingham, Iridescence at the MotorCity Casino Hotel in Detroit, Café Cortina in Farmington Hills, and Cygnus 27 in Grand Rapids.
A four-diamond hotel is considered refined and stylish, providing upscale physical attributes, extensive amenities, and a high degree of hospitality, service and attention to detail, while the restaurants provide distinctive fine dining, creatively prepared and skillfully served cuisine, often with a wine steward, amid an upscale ambience.
“Diamond ratings are an invaluable resource to both travelers,” says Dan Schrock, senior vice president of field operations at AAA – The Auto Club Group in Dearborn. “Since annual inspections are unannounced, our inspectors get the truest representation of the traveler experience at each property. Our unbiased review helps travelers choose a hotel or restaurant that fits their needs for any occasion.”

The insurer and its affiliates provide membership, insurance, financial services, and travel offerings to more than 9.8 million members across eleven states and two U.S. territories including Florida, Georgia, Iowa, Michigan, Nebraska, North Dakota, Tennessee, Wisconsin, Puerto Rico, and the U.S. Virgin Islands; most of Illinois and Minnesota; and a portion of Indiana.
