Whether it’s a picturesque drive through wine country, a lively escape at an action-packed casino, or a luxurious spa getaway, there’s something to suit everyone’s fancy at our Four Diamond properties.

Did you know that AAA’s rating system is the oldest and most reliable in the travel industry? For more than 80 years, AAA’s professionally trained inspectors have used strict guidelines to conduct unannounced hotel and restaurant evaluations, assigning diamond levels based on their findings. Just a small fraction (6 percent of hotels and 2 percent of restaurants) achieve the coveted Four Diamond status.

This summer is the perfect time for a luxurious road trip – AAA Four Diamond style! Here you’ll find a brief overview of Four Diamond properties in Western and Central New York. Follow our map and let us know which spots you like best!
