Westin Awarded The Only AAA Four Diamond Rating In Chattanooga

Friday, May 18, 2018

The Westin Chattanooga announced that it received AAA Four Diamond rating in May, making it the only hotel in Chattanooga to earn this designation. AAA admits less than seven percent of the more than 27,000 AAA Inspected and Approved hotels across the United States onto its Four Diamond list.  

According to AAA’s website, a Four Diamond hotel rating signifies a hotel that is “refined, stylish with upscale physical attributes, extensive amenities and a high degree of hospitality, service and attention to detail.” Hotels undergo a rigorous assessment, including an unannounced on-site inspection, in a six-month-long evaluation process.  

“We strive to make the Westin the premier Chattanooga hotel that services visitors and locals alike by going the extra step,” says Tom Underwood, general manager of the Westin. “The Westin team is excited to learn that our superior facilities and services are recognized in the renowned industry AAA Four Diamond list.” 

The Westin Chattanooga is within walking distance of restaurants, boutique shopping, the Chattanooga Convention Center, the Tivoli Theatre and Warehouse Row. The hotel offers 260 rooms, 24 of which are suites, including some that have private outdoor patios as well as 15,000 square feet of indoor and outdoor event space. 

AAA Diamond Ratings for hotels represent a combination of the overall quality, range of facilities and level of services offered by the property. The descriptive ratings are assigned exclusively to properties that meet and uphold AAA’s approval standards. AAA rates more properties than any other professional rating system in North America and is the only system that uses full-time, professionally trained evaluators to inspect properties on a routine basis.
